Jay-Z Is Getting Pretty Good At Blogging


First, the announcement of his 22 day vegan challenge (“or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!!”) earlier this week, and now a full, unsolicited, and generally pretty accurate ranking of his own albums, complete with commentary (“Too many songs. Fucking Guru and Hip Hop, ha”)? He’s already better at this than we are. Because it’s the season, Jay’z full self-assessment below:

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)
12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don’t shoot me)
