    Not exactly how i'd rank them but not far off. Obviously hes not going to admit his most recent album was a dud.

    I am surprised he rates vol 2 highly. I listened to it recently and other than a few songs i don't think it holds up at all, its pretty bad.

    He's pretty close to what I'd have. It's funny that he knows which albums are the best but doesn't make music like that anymore.

    It's funny that he has In My Lifetime in 7th place when that's his 2nd best album LOL. I didn't know he's done 12 albums.

    just what i was thinking. i'm hoping that after this long run of commercial shit, from blueprint 3 to watch the throne to magna carta, that he'll go back to the american gangster route with his next album. i dont know why i'm hoping this, cuz the odds are heavy stacked against me, but i am.

    Normally artists want to top their classics or best albums when they release something new.

    I guess Jay is ok with releasing 6th best albums, lol.

    Not complaining tho, I like Magna Carta.

    AG is solid, only 1 track I skip on that album, haven't heard MC enough times to comment but I listened to about half the album when it dropped and wasn't liking it much.

    I think Rd,Blueprint and AG are the only albums that id consider classics that i can sit all the way through witiout skippin anything. Party Life was my shit in the club when i was a younger nigga...Matter Fact that whole album had some real gems.
