With 10 full studio albums in the can, it gets really hard to try to rank all of Jigga's albums (I can't tell you what his worst album is or his best for that matter. Popular opinion would be RD as the best and KC as the worse but I can't call it), so I won't even waste time comparing it to any other album.

As for this album, I am definitely feeling it. I always laugh at how people call sh*t wack in the beginning and it grows on them in the end. Just reserve your opinion until you have given it enough listens.

Hello Brooklyn 2.0- Everyone has their opinion on this so here is mine:
I would have much preferred to hear someone like Mos Def on this or some other Brooklynite for that matter. This is the main reason this song doesnt fit. I like the production but I guess Jigga had to put Wayne on it since he got the track from him. As for Wayne, I really think this n*gga peaked already. I was willing to give him his props after Carter II and the dedication joints but I'm just plain sick of him period and his rhymes make no sense sometimes.

Favorite Cuts- My favorite joints on the album in no particular order are: American Dreamin, No Hook, Roc Boys, Success, Fallin, American Gangster and Say Hello.

Least Favortie- I don't skip any tracks but his "eh" songs are Blue Magic (I never like his first singles it seems, especially if Pharrell has anything to do with it), Party Life doesnt thrill me at all, I already spoke on HB2.

Verdict- I'll give it a 4/5. The lyrics are straight fire. Period. I've always been bigger on lyrics than beats anyway and as far as Jigga is concerned, I've always listened to him first and the producer last (This is one of the reasons I liked Vol. 1 so much)

The album is tight. Jay's been saying he's retired and isn't trying to make the album platinum, but the lyrics are tight which is really all that matters.

The album was excellent....I wouldn't say classic because I ain't a huge Jay-z fan.
