5 Star Albums CD Of The Week Videos

CD of the Week #12 – Jay-Z “REASONABLE DOUBT” (1996)

★★★★★: Best in show; pinnacle release from an all-time great artist.

Jay-Z – Reasonable Doubt

Released: 25 June 1996

Jay-Z Reasonable Doubt” is a PERFECT hip-hop album! From rhymes to beats, Reasonable Doubt has it all. Production by DJ Premier, Clark Kent, and my favorite producer of all-time – SKI BEATZ (who also did Curren$y’s Pilot Talk 1-4 and Camp Lo’s Uptown Saturday Night). Reasonable Doubt is mafioso rap at its finest, only rivaled by Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
