Jay-Z, newly enlightened vegan, has decided to rank his own discography from best to worst. What prompted him to do so? We’re not really sure, but nonetheless the short annotations he provided for each album is entertaining enough to check out the list. It’s not every day that we see musicians critique their own work, so it’s something funny for fans to see.
His list of insightful reasons include “gave Frank a run for his money” and “so ghetto.” You can check out what he had to say by taking a look below the jump.
