#TheStoop: The 20th Anniversary of Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life

By Cal Cee

#TheStoop: The 20th Anniversary of Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life Today on #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast series, we take you back to the musical Golden Era of 90’s music, and celebrate one of the Greatest albums of the decade. Twenty years ago tomorrow (September 29, 1998), Jay-Z released his 3rd studio album, “Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life”. The album & the single (of the same name) exploded across the Hip Hop industry, and sent Jay-Z into pole position as the best rapper of the game. It sold over 5 million albums, & became the foundational piece that set up the Rocafella Records era into the new millenium. I invite Shawn Adonis (Past contributor to South Shore Ave) as we discuss the Top 5 songs from the album, where this album ranks among the other albums in the Jay-Z catalogue, the impact the album had on Rocafella records, and much more.
