I remember I went to the big music store copping this just after high school and putting it immediately in my CD player ... people were talking loud , shouting  in the streets, I was like "WTF happened" then I went home and all my family was in front of the TV ...

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

girls girls girls
hola hovita

"u dont know" and "jigga that ni99a" are avg as fuck
Reasonable is definetely better, it's arguable when it comes to the BA but IML VOL 1 ? I always thought this album was not  good at all

I see how BA is arguable and its better imo

damn ya'll didn't like vol.1? the only songs i didnt like were those 2 mainstream JOKE of songs (i know what girls like and sunshine). Those 2 songs may keep the Blueprint better; actually, ya it does lol

RD > BA > Blueprint > Vol.1 > American Gangster > Vol. 2 > Blueprint 2 > Kingdom Come > Vol. 3

Looking back at his albums. At first I was not a big fan of Volume 1. Now lyrically that album was on point, production was ehh

Most vets have that one album that is just their biggest seller. May not be their best but it is up there and usually has 1-3 smash singles on it. Volume 2 is that for Jay. That album made him a megastar IMO.

Volume 3 tried to be the club banger version of Volume 2 but not so much. It just sounded rushed and not as planned out as 2. Had some bangers but ehh for me.

I think Vol.1 and especially 'Kingdom Come' are worse.

This is why I always say jay z is overrated.if you look at his catalogue album by album it really isn't all that impressive.most of his albums are average at best.nas has a much better catalog.

Nas has one of the best of all time though.

Jay-Z has a hate it or love it career; some think he has classics & some think Reasonable Doubt was his only.

like S P I C E said, he is top 10 when in his prime. 8)

But jay is considered one of the best ever.which to me doesn't make sense when looking at his mediocre albums.he's just fortunate always have that one or two big single each album

Disagree. Best catalog in hiphop, imo.. about 3 classics, and only 1 or 2 average albums..

Really?no album to me he has is as good as the chronic or doggystyle or illmatic.reasonable doubt was great but not perfect.I didn't like any from vol 1 to 3 I thought theyn were all average with lots of skippable tracks.dynasty was a bit better but still not great.blueprint has a few skippable tracks and to me is no classic.blue print 2 should have been one disc lots of filler.kingdome come was growth for him but the album was inconsistent.american gangster was good but a step back in lyrics as he went back to the same old boring subject matter.the black album is probably my favorite album of his but still not perfect.the word classic gets thrown around too much.a classic is an album that every track is outstanding with no slip ups.no jay z album is perfect.

I know I'm old now, I thought everybody knew that.   :bandit:
When someone on mtv that horrid day asked Jay Z about the album on that day, he said he didn't care about it at the time.  Glitter also came out.  And I couldn't go inside the mall cause some shithead made some threats on that day >:(  I chose to go there 2 take my mind off it.
