I haven't put thought into this in awhile let's see...........

The Blueprint- 5
The Black Album- 5
In My Lifetime, Vol. 1- 4.5
Reasonable Doubt- 4.5
American Gangster- 4.25-4.5
The Dynasty: Roc La Familia- 4.25-4.5
Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter- 4.25
Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life- 4.0-4.25
Blueprint 3- 4.0-4.25
Kingdom Come- 4.0-4.25
BP2- 3.75

Jay is top 3 of all time on my list. He has flow, voice, rhyme style, lyrics, and soooo many classic songs. I know he get's a lot of over exposure and over rating so I get why deep inside its easy to dislike him or want to find flaws in him. But he will go down as one of the greats period.

Yeah, BP3 was definitely a surprise to me. Take out a couple of tracks, and it's one of his best IMO

I have a question...

I'm not trying to stir up the Jay-Z fan club. We've been through that enough. I'm just wondering how come none of you are interested in the American Monsta RAVAGE remix? I know if anyone remixed one of Redman's albums (or pretty much any album I think is 4 stars or better) I'd be all over that shit.

I like American Gangster, but I think it is a bit overrated and boring at times. Add that to the fact I feel remix albums got way played out and I passed on every AG remix album out... I heard the Nujabes one, wasn't bad, wasn't great.

You would think that a rapper who you've liked 2 out of the 3 albums you heard from him would get more spins from you.

Might be a tad generous in my rating for Vol. 1. I've heard several songs from Vol. 3, and didn't dig em at all. Vol. 2 pretty much turned me off, and I find other stuff to occupy my eardrums.

WTF shit is this????

Not in order alphabetically, chronologically, by ranking...

And 4.85? WTF is that? Too scared to give him a 5 star? Seriously? You say he is one of the greatest of all time but he doesn't have a single 5 star album?

Not that I agree with all of Powell's ratings (he may be the only person alive who likes BP3 more than BP1) but he did give Reasonable Doubt and American Gangster 5 stars.
