Old School Hip Hop Sundays – Brooklyn’s Finest

October 19, 2008

Released in 1996, Reasonable Doubt was Jay Z’s debut album and most critically acclaimed. Gritty lyrics and simple beats provided the medium for Jay Z’s retelling of his life in the hood and his dealings with crime. After listening to Reasonable Doubt, it’s difficult picturing Jay Z rapping in “Big Pimpin” and “Crazy In Love” with Beyonce.

There’s no doubting Jay Z’s skill on the mic and his legacy as one of the greatest East Coast Rappers. If you do, dust off Reasonable Doubt and give it another listen or just check out the vids below. Enjoy.
