I agree, you can't take away all the major things he's done, due to over exposure.

Using BP3 as the example, I think he took unnecessary hate for his contributions.

is this serious? Do you mean sell better, or actually put together a better album?

Raekwon instantly comes to mind

La Coka Nostra did as well.


maybe as far as a popular rappers go


but, again, to each their own.

I like it overall as a whole but while listening to it, I knew that it wouldn't go over so well with some die hard jay-z fans that wishes he had the same sound from his earlier albums

Already Home, A star is born and empire state of mind are my faves. He definitely should have let Nas get a verse on Empire state of mind though imo.

Jay-z is the best commercial rapper. He can put out mediocre work and people will still eat it up like it's the greatest.

Do better? Like, just any hip hop artist that can compile a better album?

BP3 wasn't anything great.
Nothing pops out at me like most of his older albums.
A few songs I enjoy are "Reminder" and "DOA". Other than that, the album will not be listened too.

Yeah, I pretty much agree with the consensus that BP3 is another average offering from Jay-Z. He should have gave up rapping after The Black Album. Definitely past his prime as an MC.
