Today (Dec 4th) is the birthday of one of the best rappers ever. Jay-Z, Hov, Jigga Man aka the God MC. Trying to compare each great Jay-Z album is a huge challenge. Most, if not all of them, are classic in some way. His catalogue is the stuff of legend. Hov’s worse albums are better than most rappers’ best albums. To make this task easier, the list was judged from success, cultural impact, praise from critics and mostly… PERSONAL FAVORITES. So with all that said, here is the top 10.

10. Roc La Familia: The Dynasty
