The 11 Best Songs by Jay-Z (of the 00s)

There really is no artist that dominated the decade of the '00s more than Jay-Z.  He helped initiate the mash-up genre with The Black Album ( and The Grey Album).  The Blueprint is easily the best rap album of the decade if not the best album overall.  He's written #1 soundtracks.  He's had #1 rock album (Collision Course with Linkin Park)  He's written best-selling books.  He owned an NBA team and rebranded the Nets to be likable.  He has Obama on speed dial.  For this album, he created his own phone app.  There's nothing Jay-Z can't do.  I hear NASA is sending him to Mars...just so he has a new planet to conquer.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Jay-Z (of the 00s):

  1. Heart of the City (The Blueprint)
  2. 99 Problems (The Black Album)
  3. Roc Boys (American Gangster)
  4. Empire State of Mind (The Blueprint 3)
  5. Run This Town (The Blueprint 3)
  6. Encore (The Black Album)
  7. Song Cry (The Blueprint)
  8. My 1st Song (The Black Album)
  9. Izzo (H.O.V.A.) (The Blueprint)
  10. Show Me What You Got (Kingdom Come)
  11. Ignorant Shit (Kingdom Come) 
Buy Jay-Z's album, Magna Carta...Holy Grail!
