Puff had da samples but it aint like da beats would have been programmed da SAME exact way in da late 90's for Biggie like it wuz for Jay Z sh*t in 2007. similar sounds but different execution based on era specificity & production style ya dig

AG is a certified classic album. Definitely at least a top 4 Jay-z album. I used to listen to that sh*t from front to back all the time. Every single song on that album is amazing.

Lol @ n*ggaz not knowing who Charlie Rose is.....

Either way, Hov never said how MANY of the beats actually made it onto AG. He also specified that the beats that were chosen from that catalog were enhanced even more by Diddy's production team after the lyrics were laid down so again, another element. He also said in the interview that he used whatever tracks he used from the Big stash as a template for OTHER PRODUCERS to base the fundamentals of their submissions on for proper cohesion.

Not to mention that The Neptunes produced Blue Magic (for the IMAGINE BIG ON BLUE MAGIC!!!! guys )

Either way, good interview.

We all know he got some of those beats stashed... let's hope they sound like some of the sh*t on AG and he uses em in a future album
