Product Description


Here's a little something to tide you over until Jay-Z decides to come correct. Then again, Roc-A-Fella Records could release Sean Carter Sings MC Hammer's Greatest Hits and watch it ship platinum. So, it really doesn't matter if Dynasty seems to be a rather half-hearted effort from the man who many consider to be the best rapper this side of Rakim. Although presented as a solo album, Dynasty showcases the Roc-A-Family, giving extensive mic time to Beanie Sigel and Memphis Bleek, who gets a whole track (the Ja Rule-esque "Holla") to himself. Amil, whose own solo album, All Money Is Legal failed to reveal her inner queen, turns up to rhyme the hook on the posse cut, "You, Me, Him & Her." Jay-Z keeps his flow fairly straightforward here, and the beats neatly reflect his icy, relatively soulless lyrics. But of course, as the man himself has said, you "can't knock the hustle." --Rebecca Levine

When I first heard this album I wasnt really feelin it, but the more ive lessoned the more better. Some people just rushes through the album without paying close attention to the lyrics nor the production, which is a example why people dont think of it as a good album. As a MC myself ive paid close attention to this album and as far as Im concerned the lyrics and productions including the track quality is straight I dont give a f**k what anybody say.
To me this album is a little simalar to "The Blueprint" but not as better, but it has the juice to be one of Jiggas best next to "The Blueprint" not mentioning "Reasonable Dout" nor the "Black Album" believe me.
1.Intro-Everything freestyle, thats the way to start off an tight rap album 5/5
2.Change The Game-Tight Jigga Memphis combination,raps clean 4.5/5
3.I Just Wanna Love You (Give It To Me)-Best lyrical song on the album, everybody heard and saw the video 5/5
4.Streets is Talking-yall understand this song if yow from the hood or the cities of the eastcoast, Deep Lyrics 4/5
5.This Cant be Life-Similar to "Never Change" of "The Blueprint", both deep in lyrics and slow pase 5/5
6.Get Yow Mind Right Mami-An hard felt song for the ladies, clean beat 4/5
7.Stick To The Script-Agressive lyrics but to old school 3.5/5
8.You, Me, Him and Her-The R.O.C. Came hard on this one, clean beat 4/5
9.Guilty Until Proven Innocent-More of a public single, entrance by R Kelly, everybody heard it and saw the video 5/5
10.Parking Lot Pimpin-These are the type of pimpin lyrics ya need to hear coming from The Jigga Man, wasnt really feelin the production 3/5
11.Halla-Halla at me on the production of the R.O.C. 4.5/5
12.1-900 Husla-Husling lyrics ya dont know about 4/5
13.The R.O.C.

After coming off of the subpar release of "Vol.3 Life and Times of S.Carter", Jay-Z decided to place the emphasis not only on himself, but on Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, and Amil. So, TECHNICALLY, this IS a Jay-Z album, although not solo in certain terms. But, let's cover the bases:
1) Jay-Z can PROVED he can hold an entire album by himself without the assistance of too many artists(even though he slipped badly with that on his third album).
2)Beanie Sigel can flow and get aggressive at times.
3)Memphis Bleek is MEDIOCRE at best. This guy is NO lyricist.
4)Amil is like Foxy Brown, all talk, no substance.
And that's where we come to The Dynasty Roc La Familia album. It's an excellent album, as Jigga succeeded (and failed) at trying to elevate his fam to higher levels. The result was a fine album. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Change The Game, Streets Is Talking, Stick 2 Da Script, This Can't Be Life, Parking Lot Pimpin, 1-900 Hustler, Soon You'll Understand, and Where Have You Been. Everything else on this album is either mediocre at best or filler material.
Production: Thumbs up. Jay-Z hooks up with The Neptunes for the first time here. Just Blaze, Bink, and others shine as well.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up. Check out Where Have You Been and Soon You'll Understand.
Originality: Thumbs in the middle, no new ground broken here.
The Last Word: Here's the deal. This was a successful album for Jigga, as "I Just Wanna Love You" became a hit and the album went double platinum. Beanie Sigel was already well-known when this album dropped. Memphis Bleek showed A LITTLE improvement here, but it was short-lived. Amil BOMBED on her first album, never really being considered something special. Overall, this is a great album from Jay-Z, and even though there's a little filler found here(there should NEVER be a Bleek SOLO on a JAY-Z album), it's still a decent effort from Jay-Z. Recommended.

One of the best rappers of all time created one of the best CDs of all time. Jay-Z went above and beyond anyone's frame of mind when he created The Dynasty. With rumors saying that he does not write his music down, he just says what enters his head, and with his being a key figure in helping out other artists on his label, it was amazing for him to create such a masterpiece. From tracks one through 15, he explained parts of life in ways it could relate to the general public. Some songs on the album can relate to people who just enjoy the finer things in life, and other songs on the album refer to struggles that take place in everyday life where he is from. But all and all this truly is an album that can be in the history of greats.
The first track on the album is the "Intro". The "Intro" is not a basic intro with somebody talking about the album they are about to present; this is serious. He talks about how he himself is viewed today and how he sees himself in today's society. The beat in the song does bring attention towards it although it is not the focal point. During the entire song, someone is in the background crying conveying a tone of sadness. This tone brings a theme to the album that anything can be expected from track to track. The next two songs "Change the Game" and "I Just Want to Love U" conveyed a different tone than the "Intro". These songs had beats that were fast as if a party is taking place. The lyrics of the song are nice to listen to, but the background music brings a great deal of attention towards it.
But the next two songs on the album, "The Streets is Talking" and "This Can't Be Life", changed the album from a musical stand point. When these songs come on, the lyrics of the songs are the focal point.
