Product Description

Product Description

Jay-Z Chapter One [PA]

Amazon.co.uk

Jay Z's career thus far has been an object lesson in not giving up, as despite seemingly going nowhere with Roc A Fella records in the early days, he persisted until breaking through with "Hard Knock Life" and going on to team up with Def Jam. Loved and derided in equal measure, the song provided the springboard from which he would never look back. Chapter One is a useful retrospective then, proving that he doesn't need to sample a sappy musical to produce music of a high quality. Taking tracks from Reasonable Doubt, In My Lifetime Vol 1 and Hard Knock Life Vol 2, of particular note is "Can't Knock The Hustle" featuring Mary J Blige, an early example of his promise. A competent performance from Puff Daddy is also present, on "I Know What Girls Like", and "Can I Get A...." featuring Ja Rule is a genuine foot stomper. Jay Z's rhyming, while never particularly inspired, is better than competent and always consistent, a rare feat in itself. --Chris Blenkarn

Format: Audio CD
Quality songs from jay-z' first 3 albums with stand out tracks including classics like "hard knock life" and "sunshine" with the mighty r'n'b maestros blackstreet and bonus tracks including a remix of the huge can't knock the hustle.A great buy for all hardcore jigga fans or newcomers who have not yet experienced the magic of jay-z!! I purchased this cd as i am a huge fan and wanted to add it to my collection and my friend bought as a first time buyer of any jay-z material and loved it so much has bought more albums of his since!

I've only had this for a few days so I can't really comment on the music. But I will anyway. Some good beats etc and Jay'Z's quality rapping. What stands out as a bad thing is the 'Radio Edits' on this so-called explicit version. Half of the swear words are taken out. It's not that I get pleasure from hearing such words but it becomes annoying to (not) hear them.
Why release only a semi-explicit version? Hur, hur, I said "semi".

Witness Jay-Z at his best. Top cd but tracklist is different to the one highlighted which was a disapointment. Still a great cd for the price
