When an artist has a discography as vast as the one Jay Z has compiled, fans fight tooth and nail to assert which albums were the best (and which were the worst). Fortunately, Jay Z decided to give us a present on his Dec. 4 birthday by ranking his own albums, thus ending all disputes. (Or not.) Jay even provided a short explanation for each album. Check out the list below, via Jay's website.
