» Jay Z
producer Reasonable Doubt (1996)

Take a listen to the original Lonnie Liston Smith piano loop sampled for this standout chapter in the Jay-Z canon; it’s cold and beautiful — the sound of loneliness. Ski sped up that melody, threw some drums beneath, and a classic Nas vocal chop on top to create the soundscape for Jay to revel in the highs and lows of hustling. Both versions feature the same beat — the sequel is merely a means to update the superior original — and a total of five thoughtful verses from Jay that still stand as some of his most cunning lyricism.
