Jay-Z's "Blue" Reference: He named a compilation album, The Blueprint 2.1.
The Year: 2003
How It Showed His Love For His Favorite Color: Haven't had enough Blueprint yet? Jay kept things going by re-releasing Blueprint 2 as a single album. He picked the best songs, added a couple of bonus tracks, and went gold with it. Hey, it's not "blue" but we're sure Hov was happy.
