Jay-Z Fans
#1
I can't lie, i've always slept on Jay-Z, I would always say he was overrated without really listening to his music. However, I bought The Blueprint and Reasonable Doubt albums many years ago but never really listened to them until recently, now I can't stop listening to The Blueprint. I definetly underestimated Jay. Can someone reccomend the next album I should purchase from him? Many people say The Black Album is one of his best, is that true? Thanks for any help, feel free to post your opinions of Jay in this post as well...

Not gonna lie you are the FIRST person I have ever seen that's slept on Jay, but I recommend The Black Album as it Is low on features, also get Dynasty (definitely one of his most under rated albums) then Hard Knock Life Vol. 2, then the rest, I have them all every cd he has ever made (inc. greatest hits comps and collabo efforts) and he's my favourite I've always felt he was under rated, as far as lyrics go, you should read decoded and when he deciphers his lyrics you'll be amazed at just how dope he is!

Been a Jay fan since Reasonable Doubt and really since his appearance on Ready To Die. I really don't think he's overrated at all. I think that there are some that just choose to ignore his music due to him being pretty much the pinnacle of mainstream Hip Hop though. He's had a few albums that I wasn't that big on. I really wasn't a fan of Vol. 3 or Blueprint 2 (although each had some nice joints).

I'd definitely recommend The Black Album if you never took the time to study it. Great project. I'd also recommend checking out the Fade 2 Black DVD which is basically a behind the scenes making of the album. Of course Reasonable Doubt is a great album too. I'd also recommend Vol. 1.

Jay's been one of my favorites for many years. I think some people hear some of his commercial joints and simply write him off, but there IS content in his music and there are lyrics that really make you go back and have to think. Some people get turned off by the gangster persona of his earlier work, but the music is a lot deeper once you scratch the surface.
