success, street credibiity and record sales...most hip hop heads
are reluctant to call him the best in the game.
Well, for two reasons:
1) No matter how good Vol 1, 2, 3 and the Dynasty were, they
never reached the classic level of Reasonable Doubt.
2) The material on those four albums seemed too geared toward the
MTV crowd than the underground peoples.
With album #6...the rap game has officially been put on lock.
The Blueprint doesn't boast the normal list of big name producers. It isn't filled with party joints and commercial
hits (besides H to the Izzo). It isn't a promotion for Jigga's
Rockafella family. Guest spots are limited.
It is JAY-Z, pure and simple. The result is his best album since Reasonable Doubt, hands down.
Surprisingly, most of the songs on this album are slow and full
of emotionally introspective lyrics (similar to some of his past
work like Regrets, You Must Love Me and This Can't Be Life.)
And of course, there is the outstanding diss track Takeover and
Eminem drops in for a couple verses on Renegade.
My favorite track is Song Cry, where Jigga recounts mistakes that
led to him losing the love of his life.
In summary, Jay Z can no longer be considered just a consistent
performer with one classic album.
It's time that even the underground fans start recognizing the
1)The Rulers Back-Declares he's back on the throne and involves some nice lyrical skills as well.
2)Takeover-He yells back at his enemies on this track.tearing into Mobb Deep and Nas.
3)Izzo(H.O.V.A.)-Poppy nice single that proclaims in beating the struggles and pressures and he does it in a nice cocky way.
4)Girls,Girls,Girls-a song telling of stories of all the different girls he has been with.Also he gets some help from Biz Markie,Q-Tip,and Slick Rick.
5)Jigga That Nigga-a nice bobby party track for yall to bounce to.
6)U Don't Know-Another good song talking about the streets and his hustful ways.
7)Hola Hovito-Another hot jam in which Jay proclaims he's the best and does a nice job on.
8)Heart Of The City(Ain't No Love)-A song adressing all the young haters on the street.Nice tune.
9)Never Change-Another heartwrenching song talking about his struggles and times growing up.
10)Song Cry-A song talking from a broken Jay about a girl he love d and broke her heart.
11)All I Need-Nice tune to chill out too.
12)Renegade(Feat Eminem)-A tight song releasing all the stress on the media,haters,society,etc.And Eminem takes it up a step on this one.
13)Momma Loves Me-A song thanking his momma and all the ones who raised him and surrounded him.
(Bonus)-Breath Easy(Lyrical Exersize)-good song talking about how Jay his and remains lyrically fit and emcees can't keep up wit him.
(Bonus)Girls,Girls,Girls(Remix Feat Chante Moore)-more tales of all the girls that he has been with.
