    Most Brooklyn native Emcee's are stylishly creative; where their deliverance is always sets them apart. Jay z has obviously established himself as one of the many "Brooklyn Greats".

    I was about 5 years old when this was song was released and I just loved the hook, couldn't stop singing it back then. I guess it's the song that got me into Hip Hop.

    This brings so many memories of when I was a young kid. I was about 5-6years old when this came out, but I remember it well, even though, as limited as my English was, I mistook the chorus' lyrics. :') I think unknowingly, this song got me into Hip Hop. :)
