In honor of his 44th birthday Jay Z decided to rank all of his albums. What do you think? Do you agree with the order that Jay placed his projects in?
I think that the first thre are all correct, but American Gangster should definitely be in the top 4. Also Blueprint 2 Should be last in my opinion, and Kingdom Come should move up two spots.
Jay also gave some commentary on his thought process for ranking each album. Check it out below.
1. Reasonable Doubt (Classic)
2. The Blueprint (Classic)
3. The Black Album (Classic)
4. Vol. 2 (Classic)
5. American Gangster (4 1/2, cohesive)
6. Magna Carta (Fuckwit, Tom Ford, Oceans, Beach, On the Run, Grail)
7. Vol. 1 (Sunshine kills this album…fuck… Streets, Where I’m from, You Must Love Me…)
8. BP3 (Sorry critics, it’s good. Empire (Gave Frank a run for his money))
9. Dynasty (Intro alone…)
10. Vol. 3 (Pimp C verse alone… oh, So Ghetto)
11. BP2 (Too many songs. Fucking Guru and Hip Hop, ha)
12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don’t shoot me)
Let me know what you think…
