Arguably one of the greatest to ever touch a microphone of all time, rap phenomenon and business man Jay-Z didn’t start that way. Everybody at some point started off as the background guy. Often legends were once the person nobody knew about or didn’t really believe in until proven worthy. It’s kind of the rites of passage of being a great. An album that most of us are only aware of because we went back to listen to it called Reasonable Doubt was Jay-Z’s rites of passage. It was a very musical project with songs like Can I Live and Can’t Knock The Hustle, that gave you a wide-angled view of Jigga’s life as a hustler. If you consider yourself a Jay-Z fan and haven’t heard of this project then I’d be forced to call you a beast of hype. I’m sorry. My brain just does it by itself. For the rest of you, I’m sure you can appreciate the tribute to the music changing executive that is Sean Carter.
Cop the album after the plunge.
