Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Truth [Def Jam, 1999]
His beats are as tough as his rap, and damned if I know whether that's good or bad ("What Your Life Like," "Ride 4 My"). **

The Reason [Roc-A-Fella, 2001] Dud

The B. Coming [Def Jam, 2006]
Scared straight enough to rap about being paranoid ("I Can't Go On This Way," "Feel It in the Air"). *

This Time [State Property/Ruffhouse, 2012]
Quite possibly the most assiduous Jay-Z impressions you'll ever hear ("No Hook," "The Reunion") *
