View Full Version : Jay-Z - The Early Years '90-96 [CDQ, Free Download]

For all y'all lovers of 'Reasonable Doubt', here's a little blessing with dope tracks from the early '90s which shows Young Hova coming up in the rap game. Good quality and only full tracks with no DJ or promotion on them and it's damn nice to hear Jay-Z rhyme with Big Daddy Kane, Jaz-O, Lord Finesse, Big L, Ol' Dirty Bastard and Mic Geronimo over production from Marley Marl, DJ Premier, Prince Paul, Ski and Clark Kent. I also included the "A Million & One Questions" extended DJ Premier remix just cuz it's such a dope joint although it's from '97.

Thanx alot for this this is all heat......i was wondering if there is a better versi0on of show n prove cuz mine breaks up at parts and is that analyze this a legit collabo between nas and jay-z wit tariq cuz ik they had beef and i never new of a track wit both of them besides black republicans

^^ the version of "Show & Prove" that is on this compilation is nice without no breaks up. "Analyze This" was made in '96, actually NaS was supposed to be on the track "Can I Live" from Reasonable Doubt but he never showed up to the studio.

there is also an unreleased collabo from 1998 between Jay and NaS called "No Love Lost" - i could upload it when i come home next week if you remind me.

That means you'll have to wait a while, I'm not sure how long, maybe 1 hour and try again.
