What They Dissed: In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 (1997)

What They Said: "If you look back on In My Lifetime, there were songs on there that was brilliant. By the way, I don't listen to that album because I think I messed it up. There's so many incredible records on there that I think I missed having two classics in a row by trying to get on the radio." - Jay-Z 

We know exactly what records Jay should have cut. He should have cut "City Is Mine" because of its awful hook. (Jigga is the "man of the night"? Is he Batman?) And second, he should have never even made "I Know What Girls Like" a.k.a. The Absolute Worst Song in Jay's Catalog.
