The Blueprint

from Jay Z – Ranking His Own Albums on Rap Genius


What Hova says


With a 88 Metascore, The Blueprint is one of the most influential albums production-wise. Kanye produced Ain’t No Love for his first collaboration with Jay, Eminem worked on Renegade and Trackmasters produced Jigga That Nigga. Jay convinced Trackmasters to produce a track for him by betting that he’d have beat him in Madden.
