i just heard it today what do u think...

aneway Capadonna - Slang editorial
"I came to the fork in the road and went straight"


jayz-renegade "I drove by the fork in the road and went straight"

im not saying he is biting but he tends to bite alot of shit.

This thread could be nice. I hope we can keep it that way. You know I'm bringin video. This album was five mics(even if sometimes 5 mics dont mean shit). The bonus tracks Breath Easy/Girls Remix was a definite plus. I feel that this album is equal to Resonable Doubt. Many are gonna come and talk about that anyway. The point is to show how though , if you pick better or worse.

The reason you liked it is curtosy of one Kanye West. That album is built around his sound. He was starving at that point. He made killer tracks. The production is flawless on this album.


Have you heard Vol 3? The production is sick on that as well. At least for
its time.


I'm not gonna lie to you. Blueprint is a biters paradise from its Title to the lyrics. Of course you do know that KRS-one already made an album called Blueprint and also He opened the album with "The rulers back" which is a straight Slick Rick jack.

You gotta love how Kanye flipped the Doors on "Takeover".

I almost forgot this...Hov paid Royce the 5'9 for the song Renagade. Its said that he paid something like 50 large. I heard the Royce version but I havent read much info about the situation.

lol, "this album isnt terrible..9.5/10" what does an ok album get?

anyway, i rekon about 6/10 or 6.5/10.

fucking average album, about 3 good tracks.

renegade is excellent.

the production is generally boring and formulaic.

3 tracks? Sounds a lil harsh. I say there are 10 good songs on that album. An average album is around 7/10 to me.

id give it 8.8/10.

prolly not quite as good as dynasty

10/10... because it's the very last of all rap albums that has all qualities to be classic. Not like Reasonable Doubt, but Jay-Z went hungry there becaue of beef wit Nas. They both kicked albums that were classics by lyrics, but Jay production waay overpassed Nas's. Kanye West was strongest there.

This is my favorite Jay Z album. He came correct on everything. Everything was good beats and ryhmes. I wish Kingdom Come sounded like this.

ShaDynasty

classic album
not as good as reasonable doubt, but its like he went back into that mindframe
its an honest record, jays really at his best when he raps about his life and struggles
and of course the production was incredible
it bugs me that he cant make more albums of this calibre
kingdom come is dope and the lyricism is great but at the same time his flow is slightly stunted, and the albums production isnt cohesive
too many big name muhfuckaz on there
also i wanted a timbaland beat

Garbage album. Only songs i liked are The Takeover and Izzo(H.O.V.A.). I like how he sampled The Jackson 5's I Want You Back song on Izzo.

Yeah, Kanye West said himself that those beats were done for Ghostface, and Jay came in and took em. Then again, that's no surprise. i think Jay-z idolizes Ghost. He would never admit it, but he does. Jay -z is rapper with great talent that chooses to come weak with his shit and "run with tha fuckin globe" Soundin like all that other wack mainstream bullshit. Then he calls himself tha greatest rapper alive. LOL Jay-z tha greatest? LOL

^ the hype is that if jay releases anything that isnt complete garbage, unimaginative dick riders call it a classic.

"Jigga that Nigga" and "Hola Hovito" stops this from getting a 10/10 from me.

word, I feel mostly the same. Izzo was a cool track when it dropped, but I couldent imagine listening to it these days.

Em for sure killed Jay on Renegade. Or should I say Em killed Royce.

ain't no love here for Jay, huh? :p


I actually don't like Jay-Z that much, but this is one of the handfull of albums I've been album to listen to from beginning to end. Jigga That Nigga is the only song I've been tempted to skip.

- Renegade
- The Ruler's Back
- Izzo (H.O.V.A.)

my favorite part is the Girls remix at the end that you have to fast forward to or sit and wait on. Great Bonus cuts on this. They kill the bonus cuts on vol.3

Hmmm.. I always thought that Girls remix was GAY AS FUCK but to each his own.

i never liked the "Girls" remix that much either, the original version is far superior. the other 14 songs on here are more or less all banging though

Great album, fuck the hate. I'd give it a 4.5 out of 5. Personally I like the black album and blueprint 2 better.

4.5/5 would've been 5/5 but i can't stand izzo and jay stole the beat. black album is 10/5 though.

Takeover instrumental is better than the lyrics in my honest opinion. Izzo is an overrated track in my opinion. Good album though 8/10.
