Jay-Z recently released The Hits Collection Volume One, which collects 14 of the rapper’s biggest songs — from “Big Pimpin'” to “Empire State of Mind.” But as Jody Rosen’s Rolling Stone review points out, the album barely scratches the surface of Jay-Z’s output. Here’s what we think the tracklist for The Hits Collection Volume Two should look like:

“Ain’t No Nigga”

“Can’t Knock the Hustle”

“Hola Hovito”


“Can I Get A…”

“Dead Presidents”

“Streets is Watching”

“Money Ain’t a Thing”

“Girls, Girls, Girls”

“Dear Summer”

“It’s Hot (Some Like It Hot)”

“Ignorant Shit”

“December 4th”


“Brooklyn’s Finest”

“Reservoir Dogs”


“Heart of the City”
