Shawn Carter better known as ‘Jay z’ is a musical legend. I of course would have told you this in 1998. But i was 3-4 years ahead of mainstream hip hop critics who considered him a hip hop legend after the release of “The Blueprint” in 2001. And i can’t pinpoint the exact time when in general mainstream music began considering him a musical legend, but it was definitely after 2001, i know that much.
Maybe after “The Black Album” was released in 2003.But again i would’ve told you this in 1998. Speaking of “The Black Album” that was originally supposed to be Jay z’s final album. (Thank the good lord that it wasn’t). But it was supposed to be.
