Sort of like a rubik's cube is
Every album's a color
But I fuck up the other
At this point in his career, Jay-Z was aware that he had some inconsistent albums. In a 2012 interview with Complex Magazine, Jay’s close friend and mix engineer, Young Guru, confirms this:
There’s a line on ‘Addicted To The Game’ where Jay says, ‘Sorta like a Rubik’s Cube is / Every albums' a color / But I fuck up the other / Color,’ meaning he would put out this incredible album and the next one would be cool. We were kind of going in that pattern for a while. You get Hard Knock and then you get Dynasty, which is not Hard Knock but it’s not wack. Then you get a Blueprint which is immaculate, and then a Blueprint 2. Then you come back again with Black Album but then we give you Kingdom Come.. So it’s like, I fuck up the other color. [Laughs] That’s what that line means.
