Top Ten Best Jay-Z Albums


The Top TenXW

1Reasonable Doubt

Classic like no other. Jays lyrics are on key and with the production from some of the best New York had to offer, Reasonable Doubt is one of the greatest records to ever exist

2The Black Album

Jay Dropped the Black Album and Backed out as The Best Rapper alive! Every single song is brilliant piece of work, Heck Even the PSA(interlude) is! He's truly Modern Day Pablo! Jay-Hova! Roc-nation!

3The Blueprint

Reasonable Doubt is definitely a contender, but Blueprint marked an era when Jay-Z was THE best rapper. It both demonstrates lyrical skill and great beats that revolutionized hip-hop. It is my favourite Jay-Z album.

Izzo, Renegade, Takeover, The Ruler's Back, Song Cry, just classic.

This is my top 5
1. The blueprint
2. Reasonable doubt
3. The black album
4. Hard knock life
5. American gangster - Totalbeasto001

Loved that album and it had takeover

6American Gangster

Underrated. In my top 3 Jay albums. Jay knows how to make his radio friendly albums and he also knows how to make his deep storytelling albums. - marmalade_skies

No way Magna Carta is better than this. Don't vote unless you know enough about hip hop.
