American Gangster vs Magna Carta Holy Grail

Probably Jay Z’s two best albums since the end of his hiatus. I love both albums, although I’ll prolly find myself bumping Magna Carta more.

American gangster, virtually no competition, not much more to say

I’m going to go with American Gangster. AG proved that he could still rap about selling drugs despite being far removed from that lifestyle. People say it’s a rehash of RD, but I say different. American Gangster, was more a long the lines of Jay’s first concept album, and had a lot of 70s influence to it.

MCHG got few tracks were Jay-Z RAPS 4real but not as much as American Gangsta which is mo better lyrically and production when I think bout it and AG had no bad tracks…On MCHG its so blatantly obvious he dumbs down his lyrics for tha $$

American Gangsta wins
A better question would be Black Album vs Blueprint or American Ganster

So far I only bumped 11 tracks. Either I had a lot of fun slightly bobbing my head listening to it that made time fly by, or the length time of the album is short as fuck for my standards lol
But I like the album. Truly makes up for that WTT embarrassment. I havent listened to AG so I wouldnt know or be able to choose

The only reason why I think I will be bumping Magna Carta more is probably because it just came out. I think I was more happy about AG when I first listened to it than I am bumping MCHG as of now.

American Gangster is the true sequel to Reasonable Doubt, IMO

I like magna carta but american gangster easily is the better album.

AG wins but MCHG is the more “bumpable” album
Like Illmatic is good, Nas’s finest but It was written is way more “bumpable”

Hell Life Is Good is way more bumpable than Illmatic.
