11. The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse

The Facts: Went gold in its first week. Debuted No. 1.

Haters Say: "Too many songs. F---- Guru and Hip Hop, ha"

The collection came as a double disc on Nov. 12, 2002 with criticism that it sounded too pop. The Gift, the more upbeat of the two full-length CDs, features a track with Biggie and Faith Evans, and his public announcement of his relationship with Bey, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde"). The Curse, was closer to the pavement, featuring M.O.P., Scarface, and much of the Roc-a-Fella roster.
