    Default The Blueprint 3

    ...possibly the best rap album of 09?

    Has anyone copped it yet?




    What are your fav tracks from the album? Me, personally, are Venus vs. Mars, and Empire State of Mind.

    I didn't listen to all of the tracks, listened to a couple of them on youtube. I didn't really like it. Honestly, it sounded a lot like any of the other crap out now. Maybe I'm just spoiled from listening to Jay-Z from his Reasonable Doubt days, but I don't really like the album. I kinda like Already Home, that's about it. DOA was alright too.

    I get what you're trying to say. I personally say, its the best rap album of 09, cause honestly, did ANYTHING good come out this year? I don't think so. I love RD, and i don't this is bad whatsoever.

    I give Jay props just cause he realizes that autotune is wayyyy overused. I am dissapointed he did not have Nas, but i'm happy he didn't have Lil Wayne.

    Overall I give it a 7.5 out of 10..which is very hard to find these days...

    The first Jay-Z album in which he is not on the cover.

    Ten albums and over twenty two million records sold for Jay-Z, I doubt that this album fails to sell more than a million units.

    What more can the guy accomplish? He is one of the most accomplished rappers, he owns clothing companies,basketball teams, and is married to one of the best looking women in the music industry.And he didn't even need a high school diploma to do all of these things.

    He is probably the only guy that feels more threatened by record executives than he is by people from his old hood.

    If Biggie, Pac, Big Pun and Big L didn't pass away then Jay Z would still be looking up to these guys. Jay Z accomplished more than he was suppose to because he really had no competition once the huge names of rap died...thankfully Nas is still here. And we all remember when Nas and Jay Z went at it....Nas killed him.

    Totally agree with you Paul, I don't remember anything major in the earlier part of this decade. But Jay is great. RD will always e a classic, hell, i even like some of his new stuff.

    There are gems hidden in this "modern rap". We just gotta look REAL hard to find em.

    Best Hip-hop album of 09
    And that says alot about this generation of music.

    This would be a 3 in 1996, but a 7.5 now. When it comes to anything he's put out after the Black Album, it's been hit or miss. This, is a hit. A small, above average for this era yet wayyy below average, if this were 1996, hit.

    I think BP3 is a decent album, clearly others here don't think so. Oh well, we can still listen to the classics. Nothings stopping us from doing that.

    word that one song "ether" murdered jay-z lmao, second best diss record ever behind only hit em up

    about the album i listened to a couple of songs here and there, but i really like we made history its real good, but hes past his prime and it seems to me like his aim just just to make decent records to sell, i mean he's already proven himself so he doesnt see the need to make an all out album which i dont like and thats why lupes the best in the game right now dude got the skill and hunger to be the best out there

    Though I use to be such a big fan of Jay-Z when I was in my teens I never really understood the hype that surrounded him.IMHO Nas, Jada, Redman,Canibus and Eminem would all beat Jay-Z in a one on one rap battle.I'm not denying Jay-Z's talent or discrediting his success but rap music has been watered down so much that writing down good lyrics won't automatically make a person a successful rapper.

    Just learned that Jay Z is definetly spreading Mason/and or Satanic symbols with his hand signs and lyrics...Lucifer...pyramid hand signs? You serious Jay? I'm never listening to Jay Z again...i never thought he was that good anyways....when I was into Jay i only liked him in the mid 90's when he rapped with Big L

    We all know Lupe Fiasco is the best rapper out there as of right now. First first two albums Food and Liquor and The Cool are instant classics.

    LMAO Sly at least listen to the instrumentals...thats what makes the album..if it was purely based on lyricism, well, ehhh.

    I also like the song Already Home feat. Cudi. The lyrics are wack, but the beat is amazing.

    Shouldn't it be about the lyrics tho??


    Basically you're saying that the people that made the beats should collaborate and make their own album. Lmao, if producers would do that, they would be the ones making most of the money.


    Streets, the thing is I don't want to corrupt my lyrically gifted mind I listen to masterpiece rap songs, don't want to **** up my thought process by hearing a wack album

    THIS...Nothing but good lyrics song after song on both discs. I love the production he gets too. You gotta mention Talib Kweli as well.

    Also on The Blueprint 2 I like about 3 songs.

    "DOA"(Best Jay Song since RD For sure, why can't he make a whole album of this style.)
    "Empire State of Mind"(Despite it's popularity, that beat is catchy as hell and the Alicia Keys chorus is classic. Reminds me of The Yankees and the season they have had)

    The rest is overrun with club beats and Young Jeezyisms

    I also forgot about Jadakiss' new album which was alright.
