What Jay-Z's 'The Blueprint 2' could have been if it were a single disc.


Thought I'd share this with you in hopes that you'll put it to the test, see if you agree and if so, write an article about it. I've been listening to Jay-Z's 'The Blueprint 2' since it's release in 2002. It's no secret that the double disc album was met with mixed reviews and the general consensus was that it was cluttered with filler.

Over the years I've always felt that if 13 solid tracks were singled out, the album could be an amazing single disc follow up to the classic 'The Blueprint'. Whether or not, this would have been a "classic" or not is null and void at this point, but please find below my tracklist for what I feel the Blueprint 2 could have been. It's quite a cohesive listen. Thank you for your time.
