We all know that Nas's Hot-Album-Average was so impressive that JayZ was forced to sign him to Def Jam as part of his legacy as President of Def Jam during his tenure.
Let's look at Jigga-mans discography and figure his Hot-Album-Average and list his best string of Hot albums in a Row:
Reasonable Doubt (1996)
In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 (1997)
Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life (1998)
Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter (1999)
The Dynasty: Roc La Familia (2000)
The Blueprint (2001)
The Blueprint2: The Gift & The Curse (2002)
The Black Album (2003)
Kingdom Come (2006)
American Gangster (2007)
The Blueprint 3 (2009)
Much love and respect to JayZ & Young Guru for inspiring this discussion.
