    Jay-Z is rewriting the rules when he releases Magna Carta Holy Grail on July 4. He is releasing it via Samsung's Galaxy, so if you own that phone, you get it three days early and for free. Non-Galaxy users will be able to nab the record three days later.

    We have a larger question related to this marketing strategy. What do you think of this release plan? Do you miss the days when you simply went to the record store to buy an album? And to browse the racks? Or are you all about digital consumption of music? Tell us in the comments below.
