This album is fire though. Best content yet, one producer sound and feel. Too many quotables to list here, for real. Short though. 10 tracks, 36 mins and at times I had to listen to the songs a few spins to catch his flow. Very jazzy and soulful beats, I could hear Common on beats like this but Jay makes it work.
This album is dope for what it is. No ID came with monster production. Still for as classic a catalog as Jay has, this still ranks at or near the bottom and that is not a bad thing at all. Jay really impressed me. Jay gets deep, nothing commercial at all. Jigga just rhyming. He gets personal and raw about his marriage, his mother and boy do Kanye and Eric Benet get the business on this album!
Bottom line, it is grown mans hip hop, the Jay Z who was the king of the radio anthems is dead, you will not find him here. It’s raw, it’s introspective and informative but still at the end of the day, it’s still the Sean Carter we know and love.
