Anyone got this? Did a search a while back and all I could find was reviews and news and articles and other useless trash.

I enjoyed the album but I think he should still have stayed retired, but I don't blame him for coming back after the Nets horrible season record this year haaaa

Help me out here, what's so exciting about him?
I'm with you bruh.

I like his "new" sound.. the past couple of albums hasn't been a failure, just not that enjoyable!

And to comment on the post above. To be honest, all those who end up mainstream is not the king of rhymes. The real spitters are those who do there thing, doesnt start clothing and all other types of brands.

I have respect for Jay Z but I really do not like his work, I want to see him do some collaborations with underground rappers, a move like that will not satisfy the mainstream crowd but Jay Z is rich enough.

Jay-Z exists beyond mainstream and underground.

Its like how the Pixies can sell 4 billion records, do a 50 state tour and still have cred.
