Reasonable Doubt with ease

 

Then Black Album for me

 

Production on both albums is cold.

The Blueprint.

 

The Ruler's Back set the tone perfectly, Jigga was in a zone when he made this album.

 

Imo, the GOAT Hip-Hop crossover album.

Black Album for me. No weak points, lyrically and production wise perfect.

He should've retired like he said he would after this album.

Guys are talking about great production, yet dismissing Reasonable Doubt

 

Am I missing something?

 

At least 12/14 tracks on RD are classic riddims

For production, Dead Presidents 2, D'Evils and 22 Two's >>>>> Blueprint

 

I'm actually more a fan of Kanye's rapping than his producing which probably influences this a lot, and think Renegade is the best beat on Blueprint. 

 

Black Album wins for lyrics

 

If we're using the age old "how many do You skip?" argument, Reasonable Doubt wins because I only skip "Ain't No Nigga".

 

Going with Reasonable Doubt

Reasonable Doubt by a distance, not every song was a classic, but the ones that were, were. Blueprint has too many poppy tracks like Izzo, and Song Cry. And IMO Hola Hovito & Jigga What, were pretty average, if that.

 

Reasonable doubt had

 

Can't Knock the Hustle

Feelin' it

Brooklyns Finest

Politics as usual

Dead Presidents II

D'Evils

22 Two's

Can I live

Bring It On

Regrets

 

Takeover was the one real standout track on Blueprint, the others were very musically-friendly, but a bit mainsteam/poppy for my taste. All high-pitched samples and whatnot.

 

Blueprint is probably his third best album imo, after Reasonable Doubt and Black Album, but then afterall I'm not a massive Jay-Z fan.

A small amendment, throw in Renegade along with Takeover. But to be honest that song was produced, and carried by Eminem..

I will as a non Jay fan say when it comes to complexity in bars especially with entendres/word play/rhyme schemes/punchlines he is 1 of the most technically complex he's a pure MC his freestyles also are immense
