"La Familia"

Easily the most underwhelming song on Magna Carta, “La Familia” bores at precisely the wrong moment, when Jay should be building up to a triumphant victory lap. His flow is frustratingly spare and the hook is unforgivably clunky. The album is an excessive 16 tracks — undoubtedly one of its biggest faults — and this song makes it feel that much longer.
