jay z 600 Top 20 Jay Z Songs

Before Jay-Z slung apps and signed NBA All-Stars, he was simply Brooklyn’s finest. Now, he’s back with his twelfth studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, which has us getting all nostalgic for his non-entrepreneur, hip-hop activities, specifically his other 11 albums. And similar to the second half of The Throne a few weeks back, it wasn’t an easy task putting together a list of Top 20 songs — far more difficult, in fact.

There’s just so much style, substance, and context at hand. Whether it’s his diamond-encrusted Rolodex of collaborations or his blank check towards royalties, there’s almost a whole library’s worth of material to pine over. That we did, though to keep us level-headed, we paired each of our favorite tracks with comparable smart phone apps. You know, in honor of Jigga’s whole Samsung deal?

Don’t ask, just listen and (possibly) download.

This list was compiled by someone that hasn’t listened to anything before the blueprint except what their older sibling played for them. And I agree, there are way too many songs off of Blueprint 3. This is suppose to be a musical critique site, yet all these lists are basically whatever succeeded on the billboard charts.
