CD Reviews

Jay-z raps up # 1 spot with Dead Presidents.
DeLon M. Goins | Rochester, NY USA | 07/07/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To be a music artist you obviously have to be talented, but ever so often comes along an artist whos skill and talent exceed and stand out from their peers. Jay-Z is one of these artist. With his single Dead Presidents, he's telling you in the lyrics, of life in inner-city New York and how he copes with the day to day situations. What grabs your attention is how smoothly he delivers the point he's trying to make (Do whatever it takes to better his life financially) over the hypnotic beat. It's # 1 because everything in this song works. From the great production work of long time friend Ski, to using Lonnie Liston Smith's song "Dream of Tomorrow" as a beat, add to that a skilled writer/rapper Jay-Z and you'll not only have success, you'll have an instant classic. -DeLon M. Goins"
