For Jay Z’s 44th birthday, which was yesterday, he decided to rank his own albums from best to worst. “Reasonable Doubt” topped Jay Z’s list. See his list below and tell us what you think Jay’s best and worst albums were…if any?
On his lifeandtimes.com website, Hov posted an image of all of his albums, stacked on top of each other. It was in the order of what he thought was his best and worst project. Reasonable Doubt was on top, and the album he liked least, Kingdom Come got the bottom placement.
Jay also wrote a brief take on each project beneath the image:
“1. Reasonable Doubt (Classic)
2. The Blueprint (Classic)
3. The Black Album (Classic)
4. Vol. 2 (Classic)
5. American Gangster (4 1/2, cohesive)
6. Magna Carta (Fuckwit, Tom Ford, Oceans, Beach, On the Run, Grail)
7. Vol. 1 (Sunshine kills this album…fuck… Streets, Where I’m from, You Must Love Me…)
8. BP3 (Sorry critics, it’s good. Empire (Gave Frank a run for his money))
9. Dynasty (Intro alone…)
10. Vol. 3 (Pimp C verse alone… oh, So Ghetto)
11. BP2 (Too many songs. Fucking Guru and Hip Hop, ha)
12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don’t shoot me)”
