The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse: Where Are They Now?

The best blueprints create buildings that last. And Jay-Z'The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse is definitely lasting. The 2002 album is sometimes overlooked, but it was filled with big songs and big moments. And it all happened thanks to the big names behind it—the numerous rappers, singers, producers and more that helped Jay put it all together. Today (Nov. 12), 10 years after The Blueprint 2 dropped, we're taking a look back at the album's all-star team. Diamonds are forever, indeed. —Alex Gale
