JAY-Z HAS NO CLASSIC ALBUMS!
Reasonable Doubt - Not classic
** I love how jay groupies always pull this album as one of Jay-z's classic... but lets define classic, if this album is classic means you listen to it all the time. Not just one song, but the whole album. Also it has no skippies... means when you listen to this album you listen to it the whole way through.. When was the last time you listened to this album? probably right before vol.1 came out. It was his best lyrical effort i'll give you that... but you like us Normal hip hop fans, only listen to lets see... Feelin' it, D'Evils, Can I Live, 22 Two's, Dead Presidents, and Politics As Usual, or Regrets. not a classic.Blueprint - Not a classic
** No skippies... Hola Hovito, Jigga That n*gga, Izzo, instant skippies...
Closest thing Jay-z got to a Classic would be Vol.2... and since that's his only album with Impact, Buzz, real Classic material in it, but also has it's skippies on it, but this is the only Jay-z album that can be considered a classic, cause its the only Jay-z CD, that no matter who it is you knew, knew of, heard of, was bumping this CD and has the original... and it is a classic, but since Jay-z fans dont agree they feel Reasonable Doubt, and "Blueprint" are Jay-z classics, then Jay-z has 0 CLASSICS.
Reasonable Doubt - Can't knock the hustle, Brooklyns finest, Friend Or Foe, Coming OF Age, Can I Live...
As for Blueprint (1st one), I consider it to be one of my favorites not onlt because of the lyrics, but hte production. There's two sides to every album. Your right about jigga my -, but to me, that's the only wack track on that whole disc. What about takeover, never change, girls girls girls, the rulers back, heart of the city, you don't know, mama made me...
