Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam
Key Track: "The Takeover"

A pitch-perfect bird's eye view of celebrity, from the celebration to the angst, featuring a re-revolution in hip-hop production—via Kanye, Just Blaze, and Bink—that brought rap back to its soulful roots, The Blueprint is a flawless listen from top to bottom. Any naysayers left with a reasonable doubt after his first five LPs had to concede that Jay was hip-hop's master architect of the album format.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Jay recorded the bulk of the album during a single long weekend in Miami.
