WHY IS THIS ALBUM SO LOW????

Jay is an unquestioned top 5 dead or alive rapper and this is generally considered his best project. I'm not saying it should be praised like some high tier Radiohead record but it's overall stats are ridiculous and Dead Presidents II being below an 88 is unacceptable.

this is better than the blueprint, sorry. at its heights his flow and wit on here is only outclassed in Illmatic. b4 kendrick lamar came along this was in my top 5 rap albums of all time and still might be. I need to spend more time with MBDTF though too... but it used to be this, illmatic, 36 chambers, the chronic, and paid in full. I'm not exactly sure where this is any longer but it's still top 10 minimum and it remains the most I ever spent on a record at $55. and yeah it's worth every cent.

EDIT: gotta comment on D'evils tied as top rated track, that's awesome. I wouldn't have expected that as it has no catchy chorus, it's just incredible flow and wordplay. but "ain't no nigga" doesn't deserve to be the lowest rated track, it's a great take on a motown classic from the four tops, "ain't no woman like the one I've got." I think the homage is probably lost on a lot of ppl. you need to brush up on your motown.

Super smooth debut. Gets the point across with a feather duster rather than a crow bar. Little doubt the world would soon be his oyster.

Solid rapping, but the music/overall songwriting is lacking for me. That's my opinion as not a rap connoisseur.

Let me up this to a 90. For years I had this down wrong. Then I got on board. Now yeah ok. Starts ok but just gets better all the way through as it plays out. Blah blah yeah it's a classic. Don't write off mr z until you check this!
