As Ms. Gloria told us on “The Black Album,” Shawn Carter was born on December 4th. And in addition to him being her youngest child and the one that gave her the least pain; Beyonce’s husband and baby daddy; Memphis Bleek’s perpetual patron; the undoing of everything De-Haven, Jaz-O and Dame Dash had seen for their lives; Rihanna and Yeezy’s maker; Weezy’s target; and corporate America’s favorite rapper, Jiggaman has given us more than his fare share of songs to party to.
So in celebration of Hovi Hov’s 42nd Birthday, we bring you our favorite Jay-Z joints to hear in the club. To make the process easier, we limited our selections to songs from his albums. And these are presented in nothing but chronological order.
We know making any Jay-Z list anyone ever makes is bound to be disputed, so feel free to let us know what songs you think should have been included in the comments!
And make sure you check back in tomorrow for our list of Hov’s best songs period.
