Jay Z's Blueprint Album's 10 yr. Birthday Gets The Source October Cover

10 years ago this time (September 11, 2011) I believe, Jay Z dropped arguably his best album to date. Now thats not my opinion, but many people do feel that way. It was around this time that I was introduced to Jay as a fan. I truly was digging Nas HARD before this album dropped. The Source decided to honor this piece of work by releasing a collectors item October issue with exclusives from people who worked on the album with Jay as well as never seen before photos. This is what the big guy over at Rap Radar Elliot Wilson had to say about Jay..
“After his classic 1996 debut, Reasonable Doubt, ignited the streets, dazzled the critics, but didn't move enough units, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter scrapped his bad marketing plan for a one-album discography and decided to drop new masterful work each and every year.

He emerged center stage with a fervent desire to be #1 in the post “Pac-Biggie” era.
No MC ever wanted the throne as much as Hov. If consistency kills, he was the Son of Sam, and by the time he got to his sixth album, his frustrated competitors were firing shots back.”
