    I don't know, but at first Forever Young has the feel of that Eminem song where he sampled Aerosmith.

    It sounds cool for a bit, but then gets old real fast. I don't like songs like these.

    yeah, that shit was straight offa "feelin it"

    "so with or without any of yall involvement
    we coming for all of this, respect my conglomerate"

    it's funny cos the few bars leading up those 2, he sounded real sloppy with his flow, then he just suddenly broke in to vintage jigga
    just wish he kept it up.

    First reaction: 3.5

    To me, this sounds like Kingdom Come 2. You have a lot of arena type beats, a general lack of focus, and Jay sounding like he's releasing an album because he's obligated to rather than because he wants to.

    That said, I'm hoping it grows on me.

    Jay-Z has always lacked that special something. Plus the reviews of his past 3/4 albums have been mixed to say the least. How the fuck is he not criticised much.

    American Gangster got near-unanimous positive reviews. Same with The Black Album.

    Its early as fuck to be saying this, but for right now BP3 is probably my favorite Jay-z album. There are only three jay albums I enjoy listening to all the way through

    Reasonable doubt, American Gangster, and BP3.


    I gotta say, the biggest reason is Kanyes Production... reminds me of Late Registration's production... it has this upbeat/feel good sound to it.

    at first I hated that song hater, but now I love it for some reason.

    Jay's lyrics arent bad on this, but like I say about all his music... its above average at best... nothing amazing.

    I loved how he dissed a few rappers on A Star is Born too...

    only tracks I didnt like were off that and Venus vs Mars.

    Anyone else think On The the Next One and Off That are essentially saying the same thing, just with different beats?

    Thank You, D.O.A, Empire State, Reminder are the only songs that impressed me.

    Forever young is the most cheesy Jay Z song I have ever heard and I hate it.

    3/5 overall.

    general lack of focus? What do you mean by this? This album seems like like one of his most focused for me. Its kind of like Nas' Hip Hop Is Dead, but with a more clever way of expressing his dislike of the bullshit trends that dominate Hip Hop today. while DOA criticizes the current sound, songs like "off that" and "on to the next one" are about moving on to the next big sound for hip hop.

    he dissed 50 "i thought i finished his ass at summer jam"

    " nobody could touch puff back when puff had it" not that much of a diss, but he did recognize that even though puff is still doing shit he doesnt have it anymore"


    and this shit is probably just me... but this whole song feels like Jay being the teacher making all the kids clap for the retarded student in the class for tying his shoes for the first time. (clap for em)

    I mean, why do we need to clap for rappers who we've already given respect to? Em? Wu tang? Nas?

    or maybe i'm crazy who knows
