    Default "Holy Grail" by Jay-Z was a "waste" of $14.

    "Magna Carta Holy Grail is the twelfth studio album by American rapper Jay-Z."

    Last weekend my 21 year old step-daughter, with an IQ of 62, was begging me to buy her the Holy Grail album.

    Of course I did, and of course she wanted to pop the cd into the cd-player in the car as soon as possible.

    I found that all she does is play the song Holy Grail over and over again. As soon as it ends, she "rewinds" back to the beginning.

    Question: Although it would have been far cheaper just to burn a pirated copy of that one song onto a cd, would it have been moral to do so?

    I like the Justin Timberlake parts of that song.

    Personally... I try to keep in mind the nature of the artist. I don't worry about how much Jay Z is making. But for a lesser known artist, I try to be good and support them.

    The other option is use a service like iTunes and pay .99 for the track instead of 13.99 for the CD.

    I have to plumb the oceanic depth of that question . . . I'll get back to you.

    I still buy CD's on occasion, if I want to either support my favorite bands/artists or if I just feel like having the physical album for whatever reason. I still pirate tons of shit though. Who doesn't?
