The Top Ten
I think best jay z tune go like this. All his old school tunes are better.
1. Big Pimpin'
2. Dirty off your shoulder
3. 99 problems
4. Hard knock life
= 5. Izzo
= 5. Encore
Big pimpin' is what you want on a hot day with a fat spliff.
Love this sick song, probably The best song I, be heard, but fairs It's a sick song roc on Jay z
BIG PIMPIN. This should be #1 because this one has flow which 99 problems/dirt off your shoulder doesn't.

D'Evils is truly one of the best hip-hop songs of all time. The subject matter, unlike what comment before me said, is about materialism and how money change a person and everything around it. Premo beat, as always, is perfect along with the samples. Jay-Z flow is on point and he makes it look effortless. And the thing that amazed me, the lyrics are one of the best I've heard. Almost all lines have multiple meanings, there's even quadruple-entendre. A lot of biblical reference, which showcase Hova cultural knowledge.
P. S: "Its One of the Best Songs here talks Jay bout Illuminati and he is possessed by Illuminati in the Chorus are Nas and snoop dogg its really cool it helps the song too to Be one of the best"
It's not Nas, it's Prodigy from the duo Mobb Deep.
D'evils! Insane beats and sampling by DJ Premier and a smooth as flow by Hova. Great subject matter of money and corruption as well.

This list is retarded, this is what it should look like:
3. Dirt Off Your Shoulder
4. 99 Problems
5. Izzo or Big Pimpin
New Jay-Z is crap, the old stuff was much better, vote for the old songs people.
why did I have to put this up, best by far, #1 for sure
Rap And Rock Collabo. Its One Out The 3 I Like. Run D. M. C. And Aerosmith & Weezer And Lil Wayne.

The only diss song against Nas that is worth listening to.Listen to sample
Jay Z has many different types of songs, but he is arguably at his best when he reflects on his past life. In this song he does just that with stunning ability. Not a single line in this song is filler. " I'm from where the church is the flakiest, and people have been praying to god so long that they atheist. "
Jay-Z has the artistic ability to create many types of songs. But in this song he refers to his past life with such tremendous truth and skill I cannot say that any other song beats it.
P.S. do not vote unless you've listened to his older songs.
Makes you bob your head, solid lyrics. Underrated. One of my favorites.
Jay-Z is the best rapper in the game, back in the day and still now. Roc Boys (And the Winner Is) is a classic song with a nice music video. And the best flow I'v ever heard Jay-Z Rap.
Anti-mainstream masterpiece. Truly shows jay-z believes in quality music and talent
Brilliant, the song talks about current times and really shows jay-z's qualityListen to sample
