I wasnt big on it.... hes a billionaire pushing 50...and this album sounds exactly like that. Some of the bar work was impeccable, but the content was just blah to me

I think the album surpassed my expectations.

Considering how long Jay has been doing it. And of course it helps when you can afford top notch production. But Jay sounds refreshed on here. Certainly doesnt sound like he is nearing 50.

Good album.

can't take anything away from Jay as an emcee. He's been able to remain on top of the rap game longer than anyone. That being said...I haven't listened to any of his stuff that wasn't on the radio since I bought the black album when it came out.
