Dope record.  Dope album.  Dope production; transitions sweetly between each track.  Great usage of features.

Dope opening track,
Quote
I don't run rap no more, I run the map


Some minor issues with his vocals on some tracks but his flow is on point.  

I'm not sure I like the placement of Thank You.   From What We Talking About to  Thank You is fine but going from Thank You to DOA feels slightly awkward.  Maybe, it's DOA because it's got such a harder edge to it compared to the other tracks.  

Empire State of Mind is hella hot.  Jesus!  That beat is niiiiiiiiiiccceeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!  Too bad Nas didn't get to rip on it.  Alicia was hot.

Real As It Gets feels more like a Jeezy track and less like a Jay track.

On To The Next One is dope.  Swiss delivered.  Kind of reminds me of Swagger Like Us.

Off That is dope as well.

A Star Is Born is nice, I though he dissed 50 for a moment.  It's dope to see him give props to fellow rappers when so much hating ass rappers be in the game.  Like the introduction of J. Cole on the end of track.

CuDi was aight on the chorus for Already Home.  Hate is a dope beat by Ye.

So Ambitiuous is

Fuck what ya'll say.  Jay never fell off; since his come back Kingdom Come everything has been consistently dope.  Shit's dope.


Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

First 7 tracks were shit...the 2nd half of the album was excellent.

Get out of here.

No Hook

I don't feel the need to comment on American Gangster again.   Hell of dope album and I stated my peace so!

Back to Blueprint 3, far better than Blueprint 2.  Different style than Blueprint 1 and way too soon to tell how they compare.

I only liked 6 tracks on it.

No Hook
Roc Boyz
Say Hello
Success
Fallin'
Blue Magic

That makes the album very average to me.

Just skimmed trough it real quick. Some odd beat choices (that would fit Kanye more than Jay) and a lot of experiment with the flow. I was most impressed with the J.Cole joint and the last track. Gonna put it on my mp3 player and go for a run and I'll get a clearer picture.

Ok after hearing the leaked tracks I was scared about that album but after the first listen its actually quite good.
Overall the album is homogeneous except for a couple records like the Swizz assisted or "Hate" with Kanye which are the wort ones to me
Jay-Z still can rap but on half of the songs he sounds annoying... never thought Jeezy would outshine someone on a song but it happened here..
"What We Talkin' About" is THE great record of the album imo

Only gave it two listens so far (and not gonna lie was kinda distracted by other stuff) but from what I was hearing I was liking. Lovin' "DOA" just cause im over that stuff.

Not impressed on first listen, but Jay-Z albums tend to grow on me.

Empire State Of Mind and So Ambitious sound good so far...I'll give it a week before I know which tracks I really like.

btw, how the fuck does Swizz Beatz have a career?? I've never heard a decent beat from him.

Listened to track 1-9 on my running route (keep in mind you tend to get distracted every now and then) and I enjoyed all the tracks except Thank You which I found boring. There's also a question of unnecessary Jeezy cameo and Swizz Beatz chorus (the beat is quite banging).

My favorite track from this pack is definitely Everyday A Star Is Born.
