    Loaded with "gifts" from Jay-Z

    Posted

    Jay-Z finally released his long awaited double CD in late 2002 with "Blueprint 2:The Gift and The Curse." Even though 2-Pac and Biggie released CLASSIC double albums years before, composing a FLAWLESS double album is IMPOSSIBLE, unless you have all of the necessary tools to keep filler out of your album(my favorite MC Nas WILL do it this year with the double CD "Street's Disciple"). Jigga tries his hand with this album, and it's pretty decent after the first few listens. Here's the review: Disc One Album Highlights: A Dream, 03 Bonnie & Clyde, The Watcher 2, All Around The World, The Bounce, I Did It My Way, and Excuse Me Miss. Poppin Tags, F*** All Nite, and the song with Sean Paul are absolute filler. Production: Thumbs in the middle, but nowhere near horrible. Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs SLIGHTLY up for this one. Originality: Thumbs in the middle. Nothing new here. Disc Two Album Highlights: Diamonds Are Forever, Guns N Roses, U Don't Know(Remix), Blueprint 2, Some People Hate, Meet The Parents, Some How, Some Way, and A Ballad For The Fallen Soldier. Feel free to skip 2 Many Hoes and N**** Please. Production: Thumbs in the middle, right on par with the first disc. Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up. Originality: Thumbs up, but slightly. The Last Word: While not the flawless album that many thought it would, this is actually an excellent from Jay-Z. ONLY truly talented MCs like Jay-Z can release double albums that can make an impact. Although this release didn't set the world on fire, it truly represents Jigga as his retirement would soon be on the way. Recommended.

    The album deal with so many different issues and topics... from Remembering B.I.G. on It Was All A Dream to Putting little "MC's" in their place and reminding the industry why he is the GOD MC on (Hovi Baby, and The Watcher II(great collab with RAKIM and DR.DRE)) to THE NAS BEEF on (The track, Blueprint 2) to even dedicating a whole song to breaking down the difference between a "sista" and a "b!tch" on (B!tches & Sistas) and look forward to collabs with RAKIM DR.DRE LENNY KRAVITZ!! SEAN PAUL MEMPHIS BLEEK M.O.P. BEYONCE PHAREAL FREEWAY YOUNG GUNZ PEDDI CRACK KANYE WEST and BIG's verse from his classic single, Juicy
