Its gotta be said....he's the only golden era rapper who still has mainstream success. And he's still releasing dope music. Show some love. Post up some of your favorite Jigga classics. What's your favorite Jay-Z album?

One of the true GOATs of the game. Probably one in all of music. My favorite album has gotta be Reasonable Doubt for me, with The Black Album closely behind that. 8)

It's good to see Jay getting the recognition he deserves on this board. Favourite album would have to be Blueprint, then it's a tie between Reasonable Doubt and The Black album. Duke has so many classics and has put on a lot of the doper artists in the game, Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Kanye, J Cole and hopefully seen he's gonna help Jay Elec get some mainstream recognition. Although I thought BP3 was hit and miss, I'm still really anticipating his new album, would love to see him work with Preme again.

He was a great rapper but most of his albums are pretty half ass. Every one of his albums has one or two songs that i absolutely despise.

This. Reasonable Doubt, and then I'd take The Black Album slightly over The Blueprint. I'd say his discography is about the same consistency as Nas. He certainly has no albums as wack as Nastradamus.

Kingdom Come? BP3? his albums with R. Kelly?

1. Reasonable doubt ( classic)
2. The blueprint (classic)
3. The black album ( would be a classic if the two neptunes tracks and the Quik one weren't on it)

Every other album is a mixed bag to me with Kingdom come and BP3 being horrible  ( though some people like KC so my judgment on this album may be too severe)... I have the same opinion for him as I have for Eminem ... should have retired for good in 2003 after the BA

While releasing an album every year from 1996 to 2003 helped him to become the huge star he is today , it did hurt the overall quality of his discography ..

He's definetely top 10 ever

Kingdom Come and American Gangster was meh to me, but I think he picked himself up on BP3.

BP2 was also low, some heaters though.

he gets a lot of hate on here for some reason. A true legend of the rap game, and a name that will forever for synonymous with G.O.A.T discussions. Personally I'd put him outside my top 5 but still, he's one of the best mainstream rappers ever.

He has had his fair share of poor albums and songs though, so his lack of consistency in that respect is why I place other names higher.

Go back and listen to blueprint 2. The shit is laughably bad. Ether really did fuck up jay z, the proof was bp2. It was a complete mess. 2-3 good songs on a double album. Shit had no purpose, no cohesion at all. Just random songs. Jay z doing Austin powers impressions is not the business.

Lol no, their wasn't. Album was awful. Not only was it bad, but the album failed in every single way. It felt like a compilation. The singles were complete ass. His attempts at being deep just fell flat on their face. That dream song was comedy. Dudes trying to make a tribute song about his dead homey and just sucks himself off the whole song. Ballad of a dead soldier was forced and cheesey. Nigga please? What an appropriate title.Bonnie and clyde?!! Takes a classic pac song and turns it into a love song rappin about watching sex and city?!
That song with Sean Paul???? Jays soul was hurt after ether so he tried to force everything on this album. Hell the fucking title track was about nas lol.

Only good songs were u don't know(remix) the watcher 2 and well actually that's it. And even those two songs seemed odd and out of place. Why is a sequel to watcher on jays album? And why is their a remix from an old album on this one?

I dare you to listen to jay say oh behave like Austin powers and not burst out in embaraasing laughter. Or when he announced to guru he brought the flutes with him and then the song has no flutes in it lol.

Even the album cover was hilarious. Jay throwing up westcoast gang signs? Rofl.

This was jay at his very worst

Co-sign this  post to the fullest. The album was a complete fucking mess. Easily his worst. along with BP3.

Really liked American Gangster & Kingdom Come. Two great albums. Just a few notches from his great albums.

Even got down with most of Blueprint III.

"Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint, Vol 2 Hard Knock Life, kingdom come" - jays best work

"Watch the thorne" was wack
"american gangster" and "black album" had some classic/great songs


"blueprint 2" was better than the duo-albums wit R Kelly
the stripped down version of the album ("blueprint 2.1") was solid, and had "excuse me miss again" on it,, very dope cut
