Sup everyone,

I just listened to Blueprint 3 and here are some of my thoughts on the album. Briefly, its a feel good/uplifting type album. Theres alot of Kayne production but its not Ye's best production. Other production comes from Timbaland and Swizz Beats and No ID. Production wise it is hit and miss. You would think that with top notch producers every beat would be fire but there are some beats which arent so good.The lyrics are good there are some real nice witty lines. For example Jay says “they call me a camel but i mastered the drought”

As Far as Track for Track

Best Tracks

Forever Young - Great chorus by Mr.Hudson, Top Notch Beat By Kanye, Nice lyrics by Jay

Empire State of Mind - A. Keys kills the hook, Jay spits some deep s**t

A Star is Born - Shouts out rappers that made it, nice verse from J.Cole. So So Beat

Venus vs Mars - Real Ill Lines here. Nice Beat from Timbo.


Semi - Good

On to the next one - the lyrics are crazy but the beat is so so

so ambitious - blue magic& change clothes >>> this for jay and pharell

Thank-you - you cant help think how kanye would kill this song, hov is ok on it, beat is not so good

As Real as it Gets -nice beat ft. Jeezy, not best collabo wid jeezy tho

already home - cudi has nice hook, good concept but beat is terrible


Feel Good/Club Type tracks

Run this Town - rihanna kills this

Off That - great timbo beat, nice flow from jay, drake fits nicely on hook.


Not Feelin

Reminder - Jay was not bad but the beat was terrible

Hate - This sounds like an unfinished track that should havent made the cut


Overall this is a pretty good album. Id say 3.5-4/5. But it fails to come close to the level he set with his last album american gangster which had better beats, better songs, better lyrics. Im surprised how bad some of the beats were from Top Quality producers, but there were some outstanding ones as well. Hov has definately still got it and I hope he brings fire with his next album.


Cheers.

ya boy
