Jay Z has rated his own albums from best to worst, including a commentary next to each one about what he really thinks of them.

The Holy Grail rapper put together the list for the Life + Times website according to Metro, and showed his opinions on his own music with a photo of the albums stacked in order.

Apparently, he considers 2006 album Kingdom Come to be his worst, while Reasonable Doubt is up there in the top spot and labelled as "classic" by him.

In fact, Jay Z has a pretty good impression of four of his albums which he thinks are all classics, and include The Blueprint, The Black Album and Vol 2.

However, his latest release, Magna Carta Holy Grail, only made it to number six in his all time favourite projects.

The full list with Jay Z's comments alongside read:

1. Reasonable Doubt (Classic)

2. The Blueprint (Classic)

3. The Black Album (Classic)

4. Vol. 2 (Classic)

5. American Gangster (4 1/2, cohesive)

6. Magna Carta (F***wit, Tom Ford, Oceans, Beach, On the Run, Grail)

7. Vol. 1 (Sunshine kills this album...f***... Streets, Where I'm from, You Must Love Me...)

8. BP3 (Sorry critics, it's good. Empire (Gave Frank a run for his money))

9. Dynasty (Intro alone...)

10. Vol. 3 (Pimp C verse alone... oh, So Ghetto)

11. BP2 (Too many songs. F****** Guru and Hip Hop, ha)

12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don't shoot me)
