Just like the rest of us, Jay Z utilized his birthday as a time for self-reflection. Turning 44 young, the Brooklyn native hip-hop mogul and purveyor of the good life ranked some of his musical achievements with his 1996 debut album, Reasonable Doubt, at the top of the heap. Interesting enough, his besting selling album to date, Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life, which went platinum five times, ended up fourth on his chart. The most recent one, Magna Carta Holy Grail, landed on the sixth spot, while HOV left the 2006 Kingdom Come dead last mainly because it was his “comeback” album. What do you think? Was Jay Z‘s ranking on point?
1. Reasonable Doubt (Classic)
2. The Blueprint (Classic)
3. The Black Album (Classic)
4. Vol. 2 (Classic)
5. American Gangster (4 1/2, cohesive)
6. Magna Carta (Fuckwit, Tom Ford, Oceans, Beach, On the Run, Grail)
7. Vol. 1 (Sunshine kills this album…fuck… Streets, Where I’m from, You Must Love Me…)
8. BP3 (Sorry critics, it’s good. Empire (Gave Frank a run for his money)
9. Dynasty (Intro alone…)
10. Vol. 3 (Pimp C verse alone… oh, So Ghetto)
11. BP2 (Too many songs. Fucking Guru and Hip Hop, ha)
