havin worked in the muzik biz and record stores
once the cd's have been shipped, its virtually impossible to stop the release of any sale of a cd.
thats why when they pick a release date, they make sure its the one they want, cuz once ups picks them cd's up, no tellin what will happen or where them cd's are goin

Jay even referenced it in a song once,

"Rumor has it, The Blueprint classic
couldn't even be stopped by Bin Laden"

How young are you guys? You don't remember when Blueprint dropped. I remember the days leading to and just after 9/11 like yesterday. I even remember reading the Source review for Blueprint, and i know it sounds silly, but having an out of body experience when I saw the 5 mics lined up together. Anyway. I certainly remembered 9/11.

Funny, because after poor sales Jay blamed the lack of buyers on the 9/11 events. Maybe he should have just made the video with Em to boost sales, but his ego was too big for that I guess.

I was working at the Wherehouse/FYE at that time and due to bootlegging we starting selling that album on Monday. It leaked a couple days before the release date but man I remember bumping Takeover and that album late into the next morning and then turning on the news and seeing 9/11 take place. Fabolous dropped his 1st album on that date also.

It was actually supposed to be released on September 18, 2001 but they decided to release it a week earlier to try to stop people from bootlegging the album. Still, 426,000 copies sold in the first week of release and staying in that spot for nearly a month was  great considering what was going on.

Actually to be honest, I think that album is a little bit overrated.

^Yeah i've always thought that. Especially the incredible ratings it got compared to other albums that are either just as good or better that got average or bad ratings.

I like 'The Black Album' and 'Reasonable Doubt' better.

I found that the production outdid the rapper. That is one thing I miss about 5-10 years ago. If a MC was on a Pete Rock or Dre or Premo or a top notch producers beat, you knew you were going to get some lyrics. Jay sounded ehh at times on a album beat wise that is one of the best. Sonically that album is amazing but lyrically it was not as sharp as some of his other albums. It did wonders for Just Blaze and Kanye's career though.

real talk. I'm a BIG Jay-Z fan and feel that album is so over rated. Reasonable Doubt > Black Album > In My Lifetime Vol.1 > Blueprint.

for me these songs on "Blueprint" sucked
