Michael Endelman of the Boston Phoenix reviewed the latest Jay-Z album ‘The Blueprint 2: The Gift & the Curse’. Endelman writes, “Despite the top-drawer beats, the astonishing flow, and the convincing case that can be made for ‘The Blueprint 2’ as one of the best hip-hop albums of the year, a whiff of desperation surrounds this project. It’s as if Jay-Z needed the parade of guest stars and producers to reinforce his ego. And if he can’t trust himself to carry an entire album, then it’s only a matter of time before someone else claims his crown.” The full review at bostonphoenix.com has since been removed.
