Jay Z Reasonable Doubt Album is....
 

 
I was born in 76 in the 80s I seen every hot artist perform live in concert when it wasn't about the clubs, these tours used to sell out stadiums like the Superdome etc.... my aunt husband was a police so we had free tickets to every concert that came to New Orleans in the 80s. I wasn't even a teen I was like 8-11 yrs old during these days. I have seen everyone from LL, slick rick ,Ice T ,NWA , Heavy D,Rakin, MC Lyte, Dougie Fresh and more perform live.... the greatest time of my young hip hop life.


But fast forward....This n*gga Jay-z have the best album for hustlers ever....that Reasonable Doubt album have so many gems for hustlers. in 96 I was 20 I fell in love with that album and it took me many years after to catch some of the bars that went over my head.


Jay is now considered one of the greatest to ever do it and I understand why.
I been through all hiphop generations and as an engineer I recorded many artist in New Orleans and I can honestly say that Jigga is the goat but you will never understand his wave if you are a youngin.


"Who you wit" used to rock the clubs in south in the 90s, only the n*ggas that was never out clubbing back in the day think the south wasn't fu*king with jigga. that n*gga style low-key had the south hooked if not, then he had the street hustlers at least.

Listen to me....... that's why No Limit and Cash Money have many joint with Jay-z. WHEN THEY BLEW UP THEY WENT STRAIGHT TO THE GOAT for features.

You young n*ggas just missed the most powerful era in hiphop history ask your parents. if you know this y'all wouldn't be making these dumb a*s threads about Jay z lol. just check the score board the n*gga a goat for a reason.

True this, the streets school us to spend our money foolish
Bond with jewelers and watch for intruders
I stepped it up another level, meditated like a Buddhist
Recruited lieutenants with ludicrous dreams of getting cream
"Let's do this," it gets tedious
So I keep one eye open like CBS — you see me stressed, right?

A good album which people slept on.


Unfortunately, people didn't appreciate it until after hearing Vol 2 which is why he had to reissue the album.


Makes sense to do that because everyone was bumping Nas, Fugees, and Pac.

Not tryna be a d*ck but Who You Wit wasn't on RD though.

Unless that's just a separate thought from the post title, then my bad

But yeah, RD is my favorite album ever. Timeless music

You are correct that was just off topic from the post for those who thought the south wasn't rocking with Jigga.

When you say that hustler talk RD was definitely that.

As a youngin my man's used to have a hoopty and we'd rock the cassette all day/everyday.

It was this hood in the south, we'd pull up and hang with some old heads. A bottle of Paul or Henny and some smoke, it was the spot. You could play only classics. RD was everyday. 99% of the time it was BIG, Jay or Nas.

One time I brought my man through he tried to play somebody, I think it was Pun...definitely nobody wack, but old heads wasn't feeling it, my guy almost got beat the f*** up. Old head like, put that Reasonable Doubt back on.. We laughed about that for years.

when i heard this album i was fascinated and jay z was my favorite rapper every since, and not that he wasnt nice but it was the braggadocio sh*t honestly that drew me in, never really heard anyone talk sh*t like that

and it also took many replays later to understand some of the rhymes he did not just in this album but vol 2 vol 3. the music never got old i would play those cds over and over

And OutKast. 96 was a crazy year for hip-hop. So many classics it was hard to keep up.

Yeah. That n*gga is a weirdo.

I don't think I've ever heard one person in my 33 years of life say Reasonable Doubt isn't in their top 10 greatest hip hop albums of all time.

Been telling younger n*ggas this and they be thinking I'm lying.

Nobody really knew who he was or cared. I bought it second week of release and loved it but everybody I knew clowned me at the time for buying this.

Goes to show you true art never depreciates.

That was apparently the story behind how Can't Knock The Hustle came about.

They were trying to use MJB as a way to help legitimatize Jay at the time because he was essentially a nobody. Mary's own label didn't even want her attached to this project. Combat Jack fought to keep Mary's vocals because MCA records was like, no.

Glad it worked out but yeah. This was definitely an album people grew to appreciate over time.

Well yes I remember when the black album came out

n*ggas in New Orleans was geeked

I knew a cat who thought biggie was the nicest out

New Orleans always had love for New York

Probably why we have the best rappers from the south(subjective)
