    lemme see

    Magna Carta : Charter granting rights: a charter establishing the rights of English barons and free citizens, granted by King John at Runnymede in 1215 and regarded as the basis of civil and political liberty in England

    hmm… freedom, of expression…

    That’s it!!!

    it has nothing to do with the Album, title or music. He chose this cover simply because, well…. he can.

    ^ he was kinna rhyming like the fu schnickens on that free style. L was rhyming new 90′s style. Less doubletime more punchlines. You couldve given Jay an flatop and a polkadot shirt and mistakened him for Kwame.
