Jay-Z's Blueprint is a brilliant album. Everything just clicks right on this CD. The production is hot, the lyrics are original and thoughtprovoking, and the guest appearances are few. Of course, the stand out song on the album is "Renegades" which features Eminem. This song could be HUGE if released as a single and could really push this albums record sales up a lot. The album has fun party songs like "Girls, Girls, Girls" and the now overplayed "H.O.V.A.", but also gets serious on tracks like "Blueprint" and "Song Cry". If you like Jay-Z you will love this CD. I dont know if its his best ever, but its certainly his best in the past 3 years. Cop this album.
