Jay Z mentions Memento on new album

The famous 2000 film that put Christopher Nolan on the map tells the story of a man on the hunt for the man he thinks killed his wife.

I think that may be a direct allusion to Memento.

Unfortunately, I'm not too excited for The Blueprint 3, I think Jay-Z fell-off a long time ago.

Never heard a song of his (not my favorite genre), but props to the man. Good taste in film. :lol:

Jay-Z''s undisputed masterpiece was Reasonable Doubt. To me, he never achieved that kind of level again, although The Blueprint and The Black Album were notable peaks for him. I've been disappointed with everything he's done after his non-retirement so I'm not getting too excited for The Blueprint 3.

Other than 99 Problems, Dirt Off Your Shoulder, Izzo, Jigga What and Encore I think his music sucks. So, not a big fan.

I'd actually consider that some of his weaker work, but it's more or less obvious you've mostly been acquaited with his music through the radio. Check out Reasonable Doubt for Jay-Z at the top of his game.
