This album right here will change your life someway whether its the kind of music you listen to, how you look at life, making certain decisions, etc. Jay-Z released Reasonable Doubt and it was instantly looked at as a classic but not many people knew who he was which shocks many after how huge he is now. Lyrically he is at his best and his flow together show just how this is one of the greatest albums ever and how he is one of the greatest rappers ever. The production is also really good and often is some of the reason why this album is so good like just how well the beats were put together and with jay-z on them it was perfect making this a classic. The best songs are 22Two's, Bring it on, Brooklyn's Finest, Can't Knock The Hustle, Regrets, Coming Of Age, and the absolute best song on the album and that's Dead Presidents II. If you thought Blueprint was the best Jay-Z album you should really reconsider not that Blueprint wasn't good its just that Blueprint's nothing compared to this. Overall one of the best east coast albums, one of the best 1996 albums, and one of the greatest albums ever.
