The Bullitts Names His Top 5 Favorite Albums

Exclusive: Jay-Z's fellow Music Coordinator for "The Great Gatsby soundtrack" picks one from his homie, but covers several genres, with a penchant for early 1970s songwriting, and guitarists.

Speaking with The Bullitts this month, HipHopDX got insights to working with Jay-Z as Music Coordinator on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Additionally, the man also known as Jeymes Samuel explained some of his recordings and plans with Jay Electronica, Lucy Liu and Yasiin Bey.

To open his list, Jeymes selected Joni Mitchell's 1974 album, Court And Spark. The sixth LP from the later Q-Tip collaborator featured two of her greatest hits in "Help Me" and "Free Man In Paris."  Next, he selected Prince's charged 1987 Sign "O" The Times double-disc. He cited another guitarist, this one out both the Jazz and Folk genres in Terry Callier's 1974 LP, What Color Is Love? The earlier album from his list was  David Bowie's breakthrough fourth album, Hunky Dory, released in 1971. This effort featured hit "Changes" and "Life On Mars?" Lastly, and his only Hip Hop selection, Jeymes highlighted the seemingly Top 5 staple, The Blueprint by Jay-Z. The 12 year-old LP was a benchmark Roc-A-Fella Records release for his later collaborator.

    How about ATCQ Midnight Marauders or Dr. Dre's the Chronic or Scarface's Mr Scarface is bacc or Snoop Doggs Doggystyle or 2Pac's Me Against the World or Eminems The Marshall Mathers LP or Nas' Illmatic or even Stillmatic, but Blueprint come on cuzz.

    For real cuzz. You name The Blueprint as your only hip-hop album in your top 5 favorite's. Do me a favor and get jay's public yes public hairs out ya teeth cuzz. Their are so many better hip-hop albums you coulda named. the Bueprint was a good album but im sorry no where near a classic. A classic album cannot have a tracc where you get owned on your own shit(ex Renegade, Eminem). When does the dicc-riding cease

    I really like The Blueprint but seriously, it's overrated, not top 5 album of all time imo. People had been doing soul beats long before Just Blaze and Kanye, it wasn't anything really groundbreaking
