Jay-Z's "Blue" Reference: He took shots at Nas on the track, "Blueprint 2," a year after engaging in a war of words with him on the diss track, "Takeover."
The Year: 2002
How It Showed His Love For His Favorite Color: Not content with simply dropping a sequel to The Blueprint, he also named a song from Blueprint 2 "Blueprint 2." And he made it one of the best songs—and most notable—songs on the double album. No coincidence there.
