    What a great album this is, Jay-Z and Diddy did a real great job of picking the samples and beats used on here. It very much feels like a hustler in the 1970's and Jay-Z delivered the concept wonderfully in his lyrics almost to the point where it sounds like he's rehashing to the days of Reasonable Doubt. It parallels to film well too.

    idk, I always liked this album a lot. Even when it came out I was telling people this album is actually good but no one believed me. Like, the whole way through it's good.
