sh*t would have been PERFECTION.

After a first listen today, I like it, but I expect more from Jay than just a few slick lines sprinkled here and there across the album. Standouts for me are FTWU, Nickles and Dimes, Crown, and SomewhereInAmerica.

Aside from the inconsistent lyricism, I'm really not mad at this album and what it stands for and represents in terms of being potentially a new business model, and thus saying what you want to say on an album as a result. I still think David Banner's idea was unadulterated genius, but this is a VERY close second.

the actual physical copy hasn't been released yet so no grouprip for now
and the reason it sounds garbage is because Samsung for some reason decided to release the quality at 160kbps which is going to sound half as good as 320kbps

ross had a verse and a half and still was mediocre

bro
I mean a verse verse, its obvious he was just setting the mood. I personally thought Ross was perfect the way he just rode the vibe. He obviously set Jay up, Jay clearly played off what Ross said, he repeated the money dance, and it was Ross's hook, because Jay repeated that.

how the fu*k does someone listen to.a Ross less version? You ain't getting the whole.vibe.

it is true.
ross was really there for his presence on the mic.
he really did set the mood for the record and although the lyrics were terrible it did the song justice lol somehow

Production is crazy.

Love the album atm, its pretty much what I would want from a Jay-Z album in 2013. Next Level production with Jay's swagger speaking the truth about his current life. He has definitely got more comfortable on the mic, but I guess thats just the reality of where he's at.

Am I the only person that fu*ks with La Familia though? That beat might be favourite on the whole album

Dont quote me

But I feel like the intro is gonna be a part of 20/20 pt 2...


Seems like too hard of creative/commercial mark for them to miss
