The 99 Problems hitmaker revealed that Magna Carta Holy Grail will be available to buy from 4 July (13) in a video sponsored by Samsung Galaxy which aired during the NBA finals in the U.S.

In the footage, the hip-hop star is filmed in the studio working on his latest material, with contributors Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Rick Rubin.

The album is his first studio offering since 2009's The Blueprint 3, while he released collaborative record Watch the Throne with Kanye West in 2011.
