This is WAAAAY to FUNNY!!!... That's what they get!
You can stop arguing about what are Jay Z's best albums -- the Jigga Man himself has ranked his discography from best to worst. In honor of his 44th birthday, Jay took to Life and Times yesterday, where he released the following ranking, along with some footnotes:
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 ([Eff]wit, Tom Ford, Oceans, Beach, On the Run, Grail)
7. Vol. 1 (Sunshine kills this album…[damn]… 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. [Eff]ing Guru and Hip Hop, ha)
12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don’t shoot me)
What Do Fish When They Hit A Concrete Wall?...
With commentary from figures like Mister Cee, Jaz-O and Bobbito Garcia, the unauthorized documentary A Genius Leaves the Hood: The Unauthorized Story of Jay Z takes on the challenge of understanding Hov through interviews with industry insiders, journalists and his friends, and examines what makes Jay unique.
No release date announced as yet, but it should be out before the end of the year.
