Jay-Z - Blue Magic

Category: By Jeff Wilson
Hov has a new track, and has announced he would will be dropping a new album American Gangster, which according to the New York Times will drop in early November.

Blue Magic brings me back to Hov's middle years, and for some may take a couple of listens to fully like it.

    I would bet a few grand that you didn't once listen to, or even ever hear Reasonable Doubt when it first dropped (probably not In My Lifetime Vol. 1 either).

    Early years...


    Your "early years" are probably The Black Album. No offense.

    @Anonymous - Well we can place that bet, but you would find yourself a few grand poorer.

    But how I worded the post was wrong. I was probably better off saying middle years (Vol. 3). You can argue it, but thats how I feel.

    After a couple spins I'm really digging this track. It doesn't really sound like any other Jay-Z record I've heard before and I like that. I think he's trying to channel Rakim on this one which is how the song was described before the release. I'm excited about the album either way.

Something to say?
