ok ima break my thoughts down.

first i just really want jay to sit down and put some effort into his lyrics and songs.
i wish he dropped a whole album like picasso baby beats, but i guess thats the kind of jay i like spit.

holy grail - good radio track. but creatively its nothing unlike blueprint 3 to me. jay aint sayin nothing either.

picasso baby - def the hottest song. sounds like a primo beat. jay always go hard on these beats. i love the beat switch up but they were my 2 fave beats from the promo ad and they only half a track each!

the beat is on some aint no n*gga type beat, soundin like reasonable doubt kinda.
second half on some streets is watching sh*t.

why cant this dude make a whole album of these beats?

tom ford - just a bragging song with a hot timb beat. but aint nicer than anything like dirt off your shoulder or n*ggas in paris. beat is nice, but aint sh*t near those old jay z/timb collabos

fkwithmeuknow - track is ok. but having rick ross as a feature on an album doesnt scream you tryna make a serious classic to me

oceans - sh*t is mad boring. cats is making songs for the hell of it

FUTW - sh*t is aight.

somewhere in america - kind of odd beat for jay to jump on but i dont mind it

crown - jay thinks he's yeesus

heaven - builds nicely. raw wu tang vibe but its got a nice vibe

versus - another 2013 reasonable doubt vibe beat. why this sh*t only 50 seconds though...

part II - sounding like wishing on a star part 2. waiting for tevin campbell to come sing on this sh*t. got that nice 90s vibe to it. jay needed to spit something smooth on that beat though. that flow is awkward

beach is better - beat sound like my perfect thought of what detox would sound like. sh*t goes so fkn hard though. this n*gga kidding if sh*t is only 56 seconds though

bbc - all these damn songs and he puts nas on the fkn pharell song?? i never been a fan of jay-z/pharrell collabs though

jay z blue - jay-z finally sits down and writes something serious with a topic. but imagine this sh*t on the meet the parents beat?

la famiglia - the fu*k is this flow. what did rick rubin tell this n*gga?

nickels & dimes - mad boring

No lie... I expected this sh*t to be a.ss sweat.... but it's not bad. Production is helping Jay on it, but -- I don't fault him for it.

Lyrically better than BP3, not quite as good as WTT though imo. Jay showing his age a little but still good. Overall, this is his best album since the Black Album to me, the last track is incredible.
Yea Nickel and Dimes is flames and is probably the best song on the album lyrically.

Still only heard 2 songs, but yeah, his verses on WTT are underrated as fu*k...he was really spitting on that album.

but err, best album since TBA? This can't be better than American Gangster...

"Black card, go hard when I'm shoppin, Boat docked in front of Hermes pickin Cotton".

That whole Oceans song is a fu*kin metaphor. fu*k iz n*ggaz talkin bout mediocre lyrics?

And who gives fu*k that he's talkin bout money. Its his life. He can do that. And no I dont have a black card, but why should that stop me from enjoying a successful rapper talk about black people going from slavery to having the opportunity to be filthy fu*kin rich? Is it Jealousy? Just say your jealous and be done with it.

I'm listening to his new album now and I must say the album is nice production wise but lyrically his sh*t is 50/50 some sh*t that he's trying just don't fit him. This n*gga love sampling or biting rhymes from BIG though the man been dead almost 20 yrs and he still biting him in someway.

Agreed. This is not better than AG.

The way I see it...since the Black Album. (and of course we aren't even gonna count Kingdom Come)

AG >>> WTT >>> MCHG >>> BP3

Ppl underrate the fu*k out of WTT's lyrics.

Someone said this album feels like a continuation of WTT without Kanye. I kinda agree. I gotta give this album more spins but I was definitely feelin' it on the first impression.
