Kendrick Lamar's 25 Favorite Albums

Jay-Z, The Black Album (2003)

Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam
Kendrick Lamar: “I love that album. That’s one of my favorite Jay albums. Everybody say Blueprint, I love The Black Album. First time I heard ‘Encore’ I flipped out. I was probably in tenth grade playing that in class like 10 times in a row.”

“Mainly because he was saying he was on the verge of retiring and then he just hit it in the clutch. Like the beats was dope, the raps was dope. It’s crazy because everybody says Blueprint; 'Blueprint is crazy.’ I think Black Album is right behind it though. He had “99 Problems,” crazy stuff like that.”
