Blueprint 3 is dope.

I don't see why you compare the two.  Raekwon just rehashed his greatest solo effort (both of which are dope) while Jay-Z, arguably, continues to reinvent himself.  If Jay pulled a Raekown and remade Reasonable Doubt people would criticize him. 

In addition  to this Rae's effort was a story telling piece while Jay's didn't attempt that (American Gangster did).

I enjoy both releases just think the comparisons are weak.
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
- Banks

This album grows with each listen

Yeah it grows into a bigger pile of shit every time I listen.

Let me add my to cents:
I skimmed through this piece of shit once and then trashed it in my computer's recycle bin.

Lol, i'll keep those 5 songs mentioned and ditch the rest. This is going to fade from memory so quickly (for me anyway)

I think its more the fact that they came out around the same time, and they are both popular artists from New York

Even so thats what people do nowadays is compare, no1 can really just enjoy an album for what it is

I can't even front, many tracks have grown so much more on me after 2 listens today

solid 4/5 tracks for me as of now: "What We Talkin' About", "Empire State of Mind", "Real As It Gets", "On To The Next One", "A Star Is Born", "Already Home", "Reminder", "So Ambitious", "Young Forever"

I still don't fuck with "Hate", "Venus VS Mars" and "Thank You" have dope beats but Jay didn't bring his A game, and the singles are straight but overplayed now, but that's because they were singles  8)

It sounds like Kingdom Come Part 2, American Gangster was a lot better than this and even that to me was lacking. I just feel like he is a pale shadow of his former self and ever since The Black Album it's been downhill.

the best part of this album is the hook by Alicia Keys.
