As a casual fan, I've been waiting on a Jay Z collection for years. I got three of his past discs, and this should cover the few hits I was missing. 14 tracks on a CD is a little short, but hey. Glad to see Big Pimpin' and 03 Bonnie and Clyde here, and Hard Knock Life will perk my kids ears up. Must admit I wish Can I Get A...was on here, or Money, Cash, Hoes. Those and Blueprint 2 would have made this perfect for me. Chronological order would have been a plus too, as ending with Empire State Of Mind would have been sweet. Where's Young Forever? Still a solid collection, but I would have called it "From Jay to Z".

As a long time Jay fan, i can definitely get down with a lot of these tracks. However, these tracks are simply the chart toppers, they come from individual albums (with exception of Reasonable Doubt, which is a "Reasonable" omission since its a Greatest Hits album in its own right.

If you have been waiting for a Jay-Z Hits collection to play at a party or in a club, this is it, but for the afficiando, these are the tracks that lack some substance, and as he said in his Black Album, this was to get his money right, not to improve his repetoir.

I enjoyed it, its worth the download, but i would really love to see a "best of" collection and see what they come up with.

Hope this review helped.

I have been a Jay-Z fan for years. This CD is great to have in the car when I am driving. I love the entire CD and know most of the lyrics. Being a New Yorker, born and bred, I have much respect for Jay-Z, representing New York, the coolest city on the planet...

This is a nice Box set! The presentation is top notch! I'm from Brooklyn so you know I had to add some Jay Z to my Cd rap music collection! he is a fellow Brooklynite! There is a big white book with filled with pictures (black & white) of jay Z nice coffee table type style book) Inside you also have a smaller version of the outside book, and this too has pictures, along with 2 Cds 31 & #2.. both filled with classic JayZ songs , including some collabos! I enjoyed listening to both Cds , and this makes a nice and impressive addition to my Cd collection! I'm very happy with it! All of the major hits are here!

Look, I'm not a huge rap fan, but when Amazon offered this compilation for $5.99, how could I pass it up? Has all of Jay Z's hits on it and I give props to Amazon's mp3 service...works really well with my Android. This is the explicit version, so if you find your kids cussing and singing along to Jay Z, they've probably gotten a hold of your phone or mine. I'd buy it again at this price.

As I am MUCH more of a fan of his wife, I've never really listened much to Jay-Z. In the summer, I watched one of his concerts online... a lot of the songs I heard are found on this set. The best album includes fourteen of Jay's hits, as well as five new ones. I'm happy to have bought it. The inclusion of "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" was the selling point for me, as I've never actually owned this song... but have listened to it hundreds of times.

After watching Beyoncé's "I AM... World Tour" concert film, I was looking to buy "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)," which is one of the songs she incorporates into her medley performances. Now I have it. The language on this album is somewhat excessively explicit (if that makes sense), but it only bothered me for some songs. I should have just bought the edited version I saw in Wal-mart, but I kept telling myself it wouldn't do. :P

My favorite tracks from the volume include "Run This Town" with Rihanna and Kanye West, "Bonnie & Clyde" with Beyoncé, "Encore," "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)," "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)," and "Big Pimpin'." The explicitness of that last track cracks me up. Don't know why. Again... :P

As for the new songs, I don't like them too much. They've grown on me after a few listens, but they can't compare with the others on the set. Anyway, I'm looking forward to a volume two, which will hopefully include another Beyoncé record. :D

Jay-Z has released a greatest hits CD and needless to say I have to give it a 10. We could always argue over the songs but I feel he got it as close to right as possible, the man has made a lot of hit songs. The Deluxe Edition with Disc 2: The Rarities is a nice touch, nothing awesome, just as titled some rarities, so if owning all the Jay-Z is important to you, pick this up.
