My Thoughts
To start off, this is my personal favorite album of all-time. I know alot of people will disagree as they will take that comment as me saying it GOAT. Well those people are ignorant. Anyway this album is a mixture of emotional introspective Jay-Z & Hyped Club Banging Jay. A perfect mix of both styles but his introspective side takes command majority of this album. With the last string of song (Lucifer, Allure & My 1st Song) being Jay-Z best songs ever and my favorite songs from Jay & anybody. Truly this would be the perfect career ending album for Jay-Z but Jay couldn't stay away(can't blame ya). Will Jay is already a legend and most of you have heard this album so its no point of me upping material for it. So give it another listen & atleast respect Jay. You don't gotta love em but just respect em.
