With a title like Magna Carta Holy Grail, it's obvious that Jay-Z's new album will soon become one of the most important cultural artifacts of our time. Aware of his record's significance, the rapper chose to debut the cover art at the Salisbury Cathedral in the UK, right next to one of the last four copies of the original Magna Carta. Photos of the installation are posted on his website.

The cover isn't anything special – it's gray, features two statues, and the title is crossed out. But nevertheless, it will be on display at the cathedral for the rest of July. Go check it out if you can — I hear they also have an important document there or something.
