from Jay Z – Ranking His Own Albums on Rap Genius

Meaning

What Hova says:

Intro alone…


The album was actually born as a showcase for Roc-A-Fella artists such as Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel, Amil and Freeway but also featured other artists such as Snoop Dogg and R. Kelly. Production-wise it featured up and coming producers such as Kanye West, Just Blaze and The Neptunes.

It contained the Streets is Watching sequel, Streets is Talking, and other hit tacks such as Change the Game and I Just Wanna Love U.

Hov’s right on with his comment. The album’s intro is an acknowledged classic — Complex ranked it as his 28th-best all time tune
