The Blueprint is the sixth album from rapper Jay-Z. Originally intended to be released on September 18, 2001, the album's release was brought forward one week to September 11, 2001, in order to combat widespread bootlegging. Unfortunately, the album was released on the day of the terrorist attacks in Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania and Jay-Z's native New York City. Despite being overshadowed by the attacks, the album sold over 426,000 copies in its opening week becoming his fourth consecutive album to hit #1 on the Billboard 200. It eventually went 2x Platinum, and sales stand at more than 2.3 million copies in the US. Jay-Z would later boast, "Rumor has it, The Blueprint classic/Couldn't even be stopped by Bin Laden" on the track "The Bounce" from his follow-up album The Blueprint 2: The Gift & the Curse.

Overview

The Blueprint was reportedly cut in two weeks. Jay-Z was awaiting two criminal trials, one for gun possession, another for assault. At the time he was engaged in several feuds, with Nas, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, and others attacking him in song. Parts of The Blueprint became a battle album, particularly in "Takeover", on in which Jay-Z attacks Nas, Prodigy, and all manner of persecutors, set to the hard rock of samples of The Doors' "Five to One". "Takeover" closes with the line "To all you other cats throwing shots at Jigga/You only get half a bar, fuck y'all niggas" as a blanket response to all his enemies not mentioned elsewhere in the song.

In The Blueprint, Jay-Z and his producers turn to vintage soul, fueling almost every song with a stirring vocal sample: Al Green, Bobby "Blue" Bland, David Ruffin and the Jackson 5. Exceptions include "Jigga that Nigga," "Hola' Hovito," "All I Need," and most notably "Renegade," (misspelled "Renagade" on the back cover) a track produced by and featuring Eminem. "Renegade" was the only track with a guest rapping appearance, and many fans and critics feel that Jay-Z was overshadowed by Eminem's visceral, assonant rhymes (Nas declared on his response song Ether that "Eminem murdered you on your own shit"). It also differs in tone from the rest of the album, featuring a much darker beat. For other uses, see Soul music (disambiguation). ...

Critical Reception and Impact

The Blueprint contained a unique and balanced blend of soulful samples that had both street credibility and mainstream appeal, thereby garnering praise from all quarters of the hip-hop community and receiving special recognition from critics. Most consider The Blueprint to be one of Jay-Z's best albums, holding it on a level close to that of his debut, Reasonable Doubt. Upon its release, The Blueprint was rated as Vibe Magazine's "Best Album of the year", and even received a 5 mic (out of 5) rating from The Source (a distinction reserved for hip hop classics). Pitchfork Media named it the 2nd best album of 2000-2004, behind Radiohead's Kid A. The popularity and commercial success of the album established Kanye West as one of hip-hop’s most celebrated producers. Furthermore, The Blueprint signaled a major stylistic shift in hip-hop production towards a more Soul/R&B-centric and sample-reliant sound, creating a number of imitators who attempted to emulate the album's atmospheric style. Prior to The Blueprint, mainstream hip-hop producers had largely eschewed music sampling in favor of the keyboard-driven Timbaland sound (characterized by a shifting, syncopated rhythm, similar to samba or jungle music), due to the financial and legal issues associated with copyright laws. The Blueprint, however, revived musical sampling as a common practice in hip hop music and dislodged the digital keyboard-driven production style as the dominant sound in hip-hop music [1]. Kanye West would later incorporate some of the production and sampling techniques he used on this album into his own solo albums (see The College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation.) Reasonable Doubt is the debut album by East Coast rapper Jay-Z. It was released on June 25, 1996 by Roc-A-Fella Records in the United States and Northwestside Records in the United Kingdom. ...

blueprint: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (1221 words)
A blueprint of drawings or photographs to be included in a publication serves as a guide for positioning them in a dummy copy of the magazine or other publication.
When the attached drawing and the blueprint paper are exposed to a strong light, the unprotected ferric salt not lying beneath the lines of the drawing is changed to a ferrous salt that reacts with the ferricyanide to form Turnbull's blue.
Revision control was done in contrasting color on the blueprints, for example red markup of a blueprint copy by the engineer, then yellow markup on the copy by the draftsman who implemented the changes on the original drawing, then brown markup by the checker, on a check-print (a brown-line) or sepias.
