The Last Good Album I Heard: The Blueprint 3

The last good album that I heard was The Blueprint 3 by Jay-Z. This album is Jay-Z’s 11th studio album of his historic rap career. It was released on September 11, 2009 and is the third installment of the Blueprint trilogy.

The Blueprint 3 has Jay-Z collaborating with artists such as Drake, Young Jeezy, Alisha Keys, Kid Cudi, Mr. Hudson, Kanye West, Swizz Beats and Rihanna. It is safe to say this album is not without the major heavy hitters of the hip/hop community.  It would have been a complete album if they would have had Lil’ Wayne and T.I. on this album,  but not everything is always perfect.

“The Blueprint 3 is just a solid album,” said senior Alec Erlandson. 

The Blueprint 3 is currently #37 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. It topped out at #1  on the Billboard Top 200 chart.  Several of the songs on the album are on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Currently the songs are Empire State of Mind ft. Alisha Keys at #28, On to the Next One ft. Swizz Beats at #37, and Young Forever ft. Mr. Hudson at #78.
