Jay-Z

I'm Just as Big as

The Real Magna Carta

Who's bigger ... Jay-Z or the Magna Carta -- the historic document that eventually gave Americans "certain inalienable rights" -- not his new album?

It's a toss up, but yeah ... Jigga paid his respects during a Sunday visit with the real-life Magna Carta -- the 13th Century document written in England, and forced upon King John in order to provide liberties and justice for all ... and stuff.

Jay-Z posed next to the MC in the Salisbury, England cathedral where it's kept under lock and key. 

Now, if he can just find the Holy Grail.

FUN FACT: The Magna Carta is the basis for the U.S. Constitution, and therefore most of our laws. But here's the thing -- do you remember what year the Magna Carta was signed?

To even compare the two is just absurd.

His name is now "Jay Z" (sans -), apparently dropping the hyphen is a big name change. What he needs to do is drop a great lyric; it's been a while.

Why is his shirt so short? That is either NOT his shirt, or the maid put it in the dryer too long. I HATE when my maid does that! Maybe Beyonce needs to learn how to do the laundry, so her husband is not wearing clothes like this.

He looks like Rerun got lipo. Yes, props for being a good businessman but he isn't worthy enough to even carry Bobby D's jock.

I bet Jay-Z doesn't even know what the Magna Carta or Holy Grail are; he just likes the way is "sound".
