Jay-Z is now probably the most famous rapper on the planet. Moreover, when Hard Knock Life Volume 2 was released, he was certainly getting the exposure he deserved. Whilst the concept of sampling the musical Annie may have turned a few heads back then, 'Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)' actually stands out as one the best tracks on the album. The rest of the tracks are enjoyable too, such as Ride or Die, making it a very accessible rap album from the late 1990s.
Hard Knock Life Volume 2 is still worth a listen for even newcomers of this iconic rapper's music. The album should also certainly encourage other fans, who probably best know him for his latter works, to revisit some of his material from the 1990s.

Simply, this is a top album - you have to give it time, as at first I steered clear of "Hard Knock Life" and "A Week Ago", but these slow beats are the thing Jig is good at - "A Week Ago" tells a story which is described so well and gives such empathy that it can be imagined. These perceptions are why Jay-Z is one of the top artists. "Money Ain't A Thang" is another amazing song, with good old Jermaine Dupri, a class rhymer with a noticable, but effective voice. Tunes are generally good, although few weak songs, and if DMX is not your cup of tea, stay away from "Cash, Money, Hoes", as it is full of the dog barks from Dark Man X himself. Also very good performances from Ja Rule and Amil, Kid Capri and others - a top album, different from the slow, lights-dimmed romance sort of style in Vol 1, and the agressive truth of Reaonable Doubt (A MUST-HAVE), Mr Carter has produced a fine continuation to his stories (especially the second chapter of "Coming Of Age" with Memphis Bleek, amazing, even better than the original). Well worth purchasing if you like Jay-Z, and his slower, rythmic sick-style.

OK, yeah. I was a bit dubious about buyin this CD too after the title track, but hey, I'm glad I invested. The whole CD's full of boomin bass lines, guest appearances from the likes of DMX, Lox and Ja Rule, slick rhymin and slick rhymin. The album does have a few weaker tracks, but it's great to just ride to in your car, and easily better than Reasonable doubt and In my lifetime. And hey, 'Hard knock life' has even grown on me.

This guy you want to say is "selling" but you cant.Lyrically fliud,the titletrack digs in your chest.I actually loathe the trend of pseudo-compilationalbums;but it seems JAY-Z is trying tomake a point:"put me with the hottest acts of the moment and i'll slay them!" "Resevoir Dogs" is probably thebest "posse" cut EVER!!The Kid Capri and Jermaine Dupree joints,though ok,stop this from being a perfect album;but overall JAY-Z has(again!)proved you can be all things to all fans.
