Masterpieces - Jay-Z - The Black Album
Tonight's Masterpiece is an album of pure honesty and drive that simultaneously ended and revived this artist's career. Jay Z was an international superstar with a canon of hit records to his name, yet the routine of 'make a record', 'promote a record', 'tour a record' was getting him down. Deciding his next album would be his last, Jay put his heart and soul into recording sessions as did his collaborators. The result, whist not, as history would prove, his last album, it is certainly one of the best. It is tonight's Masterpiece. It is 'The Black Album'.
