Jay Z Ranks Jay Z
He’s had one of the most prolific rap careers of all time, and Jay Z definitely has his own opinions on his body of work.
The “Tom Ford” rapper recently ranked his albums over the years, making parenthetical notes as to the flaws and virtues of each opus.
Jay Z’s album rankings turned out to be rather interesting, and old and new fans alike will enjoy the mogul’s own perspective and perhaps even discover a new favorite record.
HOVA’s thoughts are as follows:
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 (F*ckwit, Tom Ford, Oceans, Beach, On the Run, Grail)
7. Vol. 1 (Sunshine kills this album … f*ck … 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. F*cking Guru and Hip Hop, ha)
12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don’t shoot me)
