I’m really not sure how I haven’t posted any Shawn Carter yet. Hov was one of my favorite artists in my innocent youth and I think the year The Black Album came out I listened to it for a month straight. Here’s my favorite Blueprint track. I still think it’s way infectious and it’s just Jay-Z doing his thing. Also some unknown guy named Kanye West produced it. He became an artist later and has done alright. I don’t know why but I’m not really as big into Jay as I used to be, I would guess it’s because I started looking for more underground artists instead of the one that ran the mainstream. Either way, dude can spit and I still enjoy his music. H to the Izzo.
