Format:Audio CD
I'm definately a Jay-Z fan. I never thought I would give a Jigga album two stars. Don't get me wrong, if you didn't buy the first Blueprint 2 you definitely should buy this album. If Blueprint 2.1 came out first I would have given it 5 stars, but this is simply a repeat of B2. I was hoping the tracks would be remixes or something other than a repeat of B2. If you own a copy of B2, it makes absolutly no sence to buy this album, because you already have these songs except for the 2 bonus/ hidden tracks. Which could have been release separately on a maxi single. The bonus tracks are HOT, but you need to decide if it's worth buying the whole CD just for 2 new tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jay-Z The Blueprint 2.1 July 11, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album should have been the original Blueprint 2.
1. A Dream (Featuring Faith Evans & Notorious B.I.G.) - Thought there would be an unreleased Biggie verse but it's just the 1st verse from the classic cut "Juicy", but anyways it's a really good track with alright production. 4/5
2. Hovi Baby - Awesome song,with good production, check out the remix on the Dysfunktional Family Soundtrack. 5/5
3. Excuse Me Miss (Featuring Pharrell) - 2nd single way better than O3' Bonnie & Clyde. Cool video 4/5
4. 03' Bonnie & Clyde (Featuring Beyonce') - I wouldn't like it even if he didn't rip off 2Pac. I hate it. 1/5
5. Gun's & Rose's (Featuring Lenny Kravitz) - Good Rap/Rock track, I heard it was supposed to be the 3rd single, but I guess not. 4/5
6. The Watcher Part 2 (Featuring Dr. Dre, Rakim, & Truth Hurts) - One of the best songs on the album, almost as good as the original on Dr. Dre's Chronic 2001 album. 5/5
7. All Around The World (Featuring Latoiya Williams) - Alright track, with good production. Features Latoiya William's of Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle Records. 3/5
8. Some How, Some Way (Featuring Beanie Sigel & Scarface) - Great album with an awesome verse from 'Face. 5/5
9. Meet The Parent's - Awesome storytelling track, one of my favorites. 5/5
10. Ni99a Please (Featuring Young Chis & Pharrell) - Good production from the Neptune's, with an ok verse & hook from Roc-A-Fella recording artist Young Chris. 4/5
11. Poppin' Tag's (Featuring Big Boi, Killer Mike, & Twista) - I love this song, fast rapping from Twista. Check out the remix with Ludacris, Big Boi, Killer Mike, & Twista in it. 5/5
12. The Bounce (Featuring Kanye West) - Impressive rapping debut from Kanye, also good production. 4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Average April 14, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The only reason JayZ released this album is becasue he realized he had 2 many wack songs on the double cd. Should have only released 1 cd in the first place. Jayz definately fell off on this album from a classic Blueprint 1 to an average rap album. I was not amused by Jayz's new projects. Jayz needs to reclaim his self next time around better. Perfectly summed up in the words of Common "I can tell how you rap you ain't hungry no more"

5.0 out of 5 stars Jay- Z Will Always Be Hot June 26, 2003
By Rhonda
Format:Audio CD
This cd is just songs from blueprint 2 but the songs on 2.1 are like the hottest songs on blueprint 2. I have all of Jay- Z's cd's because it's something about his voice and his words that make me like all his music. So if you are a Jay-z fan this cd is for you. (the bonus tracks are on fire!!!!!)

3.0 out of 5 stars please June 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was a bit annoyed with this album,fisrt of all the best song on here is probably dream feat b.i.g.The thing that was annoying was that the bonus tracks were really good,instead of putting them in normal tracks u have to wait until the last track on the album is finish.Otherwise it just goes back to the start.There are'nt that many good songs either apart from dream and excuse me miss,and the bonus songs.Most of the songs are wasted,its ok but your better off getting nas-god's'son or unreasonable doubt.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy Blueprint 2 December 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The album Blueprint 2.1 is pretty average, especially for someone like Jay-Z. There are a few great cuts like "03 Bonnie and Clyde", "Excuse Me Miss", and "A Dream" which samples Biggie's lyrics in his song "Juicy" from Ready to Die. Over half the album is filler though, like "The Bounce".

You could just get the Blueprint 2 and pay the same amount and still get more tracks. You could just make this mix on your computer. I mean why pay more for less songs if you could have it all with Blueprint 2 (and a cooler cover). 2.1 is 3 stars because of the solid tracks.

I reccomend 2.1 to any crazy Jay-Z fan. If you are not a crazy fan, get Blueprint 2. If you are not a fan, then don't waste your money on an average Jay-Z album, when you can get much better one s like "Reasonable Doubt"
