This is a good album, but not a truly great album like the first Blueprint. It has some excellent tracks (Nas should have REALLY been on Empire State of Mind) but some really mediocre and unremarkable ones to go along with it (the Timbaland tracks are simply awful, Swizz Beatz song is missing something). Some songs might grow on me as I listen to them more but as of now I'd give the album a 7.5/10.

And honestly, this is a good album for Jay to retire on, even though I have a feeling he won't.

I don't think it was ever a freestyle -- I remember the video, and I think it was at or after a listening event.

In the video, you can hear a guy singing along.

Kind of off topic, but the Twitter guy that leaked the album also says he'll be leaking Cudi's album in a day:

twitter.com/ThisisFDL

How does he get away with publicly being the dude behind leaking all this shit?

cuz Twitter isn't a public viewing forum, its just a blog messaging for friends I guess and that guy is my Niga he just leaked the new Raekwon Cuban Linx II, now that shit is Crack! also can't wait for Cudi album tomorrow, he tweeted his Dad just got the hard copy in, I wonder wut his pops does for a living!
Also LOL why does Jay like talkin' bout his Knots so much, from On To The Next One:
"No I'm not a Jonas
Brother I'm a grown up
No I'm not a Virgin
I use my Kahonas"
Fresh though.

Thanks for the heads up, Im downloading that Cuban Linx 2 right now. I bet its better than BP3, that Cudi album sampler sounds good too.

Was anyone kinda surprised to hear the vocals on Venus vs. Mars' hook? I think it worked better before they added that other voice.

Personally, I think Alicia Keys killed it on Empire State of Mind..

I had taken the words out of his mouth and filled it with fart.

"Alicia Keys murdered you on your own shit."

No hate towards BP3 my expectations were low from hearing the leaks but the album is growing on me but Alicia really did kill Jay's verses.

New as in they weren't on the leak that came a few days before the album itself leaked. If you're listening on YouTube, then look for the ones uploaded most recently.

Fuck it, a link is worth a thousand words:

Shit was garbage, there is like 3 good tracks and 2 decent tracks. Honestly, I don't want to hear about how you made it, don't need to rap anymore and own a shitty basketball team the whole cd.

Kid Cudi's album is gonna be better, and thats just sad.


this.
album sucks
its a little better then Kingdom Come, but The Prelude better then any track on here.

im ready for Cudi's album.

BP3 is somewhere in the middle of Jay's catalogue but it's defenitely not an average album. Just to name a few ''So Ambitious'' is on some '97 shit, ''A Star Is Born'' knocks like a ma'fucka & ''Empire State Of Mind'' is such a great track...albums dope. cool

I'm also kind of torn in the way that he used the artist.

For instance when I saw, Kid Cudi, Drake etc. being featured on the album a long time ago I realized he was going to use their buzz to help sell even more albums.

But then for those two specifically he only uses them in the hook, nothing more and both I feel could have written a few decent bars.

But at the same time it shows him off more and then he lets Kanye do that shitty song Haters with him. saying lines i swear i heard 5 years ago from him.

Either way it is what it is, the dude should have stayed retired a long time ago.
