Jay Z – The Hits Collection (Volume One) (Universal Music Canada)

A 14-song collection of some of Jigga’s biggest hits in addition to personal favourites of the rapper, this compilation covers his career to date. What an impressive run it has been. Included here are bonafide hits like last year’s Empire State Of Mind, Run This Town, Izzo (H.O.V.A.), Hard Knock Life and 99 Problems to name a handful. Though there are a few tracks missing that could have easily been included (Change Clothes, for example), one can only expect that song and many more to surface on the inevitable Volume Two Hits Collection in the future.
