This looks pretty heavy.
Daps to Robbie for the heads up.
Here’s a trailer for a new “unauthorized” documentary on Shawn Corey Carter from Moguldum Films. It will feature commentary from a wide range of industry players and friends of Jay including Mister Cee, Jaz-O, Bobbito Garcia and Kim Osorio. A Genius Leaves The Hood is slated to drop before the end of the year.
Here’s a lyric video for “Consumerism”, a frantic new track that L Boogie debuted at her prison homecoming show in NYC last week. This thing sure has a lot of “isms”, she should get GLC for the remix.

Mys was going at Trinidad James before it was cool. I understand these two had a “conversation” at the Soletron sneaker convention in New York this past weekend. You can check out a quick clip of Mys approaching son on the convention floor below.

I’ve done this a million times in my head and during arguments with other people, but I’ve never attempted to write it down and get definitive with it. But Jay went in so to hell with it, here goes.
1. Reasonable Doubt
2. The Blueprint
3. The Black Album
4. Vol. 1
5. American Gangster
6. Vol. 3
7. The Dynasty
8. Blueprint 2
9. Magna Carta Holy Grail
10. Vol. 2
11. Blueprint 3
12. Kingdom Come
Now, look at that list and tell me it’s not perfect. I originally said I’d only rearrange a couple of Jay’s rankings, but moving one makes you think, then you end up moving another and so here we are. As you can see, my top 3 mirrors Jay’s but we diverge at #4. I no longer care for Vol. 2 although I loved it at the time. I was one of the few people that didn’t hate Kingdom Come when it came out, but it has not held up well at all (or maybe it was never good). Blueprint 2 definitely had too many songs and I’m not counting 2.1. Had he dropped that from jump, it might have ultimately ranked higher. I also ignored both of the Best of Both Worlds LPs, as I did when they originally dropped.
