Jay-Z, a day ahead of the official release of his 12th studio album "Magna Carta...Holy Grail," has taken to Twitter to field the most random set of comments/questions/musings from fans. The rapper, who has more than 2 million followers but had been silent on Twitter since June 17, suddenly started responding to fans this afternoon with mostly "FactsOnly" or "#my laugh," confusing and amusing all of Twitter:

This is probably the most exciting non-music thing Hov has done since he rode the subway with a cute lady named Ellen Grossman.
