lucky me always annoyed me. love the lyrics, hate the goddamn beat and chorus.

but american gangster >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> vol 1 for me.

obviously vol 1 is jay in his lyrical prime, but ag is a much more cohesive listen overall.

i wouldn't give the production a 5/5. more like a 4/5. part II sounded like it shoulda been on a beyonce album. bbc sounded like a n.e.r.d throwaway.

i just got the vibe throughout that jay was tryna emulate a rick ross album. from the cadence on certain songs to the beat selection.

this is probably my second least favorite album from him next to kingdom come.

people who are saying this is better than american gangster are idiots. that album was pretty soilid throughout. had some mishaps, but also some really standout joints. this one doesn't have a single song that sticks out more than another.

if i had to rank all jay's albums, my list looks like this...

reasonable doubt
the blueprint
the black album
dynasty album (if people consider this a jay solo effort)
american gangster
vol 2
blueprint 3
blueprint 2
vol 1
vol 3
mghg
kingdom come


mchg is a 6.5/10 in my eyes. some of jay's lyrics are corny as sh*t on this. the rick ross swagger jacking on some songs also annoys me.
If I was to flip his joints and rank them imo it would be like this:

reasonable doubt
black album
blueprint
The Dynasty (compilation album)
Vol. 2
AG
Vol.1
Vol.3
Kingdom Come
Blueprint 3

Idk where I would put MCHG just yet. (By the way, not a team jay affiliate in no means)

exactly.

n*ggas saying otherwise are either whitewashed or partially deaf.

Only album I can see being better produced than this is Oxymoron, and that's props to Hov cause TDE is running the game right now.

I don't think its has song tho. Cause remember he was in the studio with Drake & Mike Will made it at the same time. Someone here on Boxden put that pic up awhile ago.....
