List Rules Upvote your favorite Jay Z songs that are underrated. Big Pimpin, Show Me What You Got, Ghetto Anthem, etc. should NOT be on here.

With a rapper like Jay-Z, it's easy to focus on his abundance of hits. His catalog boasts some of the biggest rap songs, but that doesn't mean everything else is chopped liver. Some of the most underrated Jay-Z songs are perhaps some of his best, depending on who you ask, of course. For a rapper like Jay-Z who has so many hit songs, it's easy for other great tracks to get lost in the shuffle and there's a batch of songs that, for one reason or another, have been overlooked.

So what are the most underrated Jay-Z songs? Well, this list can include any song outside of his greatest hits (you know those) and that means even singles are fair game. You'll see a number of songs you're familiar with, and others you aren't. But that's the joy of this list. There are so many Jay-Z songs, freestyles, and verses - if you think one song is underrated, then add it! Vote or rerank this list to you how deem it to be fit, based on which of these great Jay Z songs you think are the most underrated.
