We’ve already downloaded the free, 68-track joint and, hate him or love him, it’s pretty dope to take a journey back down memory lane.
Since Reasonable Doubt, Sean Jay-Z Carter showed us anything is possible. With a long lasting relationship with the art of story telling, there is no doubt that Jay-Z is one of the best rappers of all time. With every album that he releases, Jay-Z gives the world an opportunity to evolve, a picture frame of perspective, a different way of seeing life and a new instant fashion, business and social culture trend with each music video.
As with all her tribute mixes, DJ Lissa Monet once again provides listeners with the raw emotion of Jay-Z’s live shows to his forgotten features along with contributions of thoughts and words from his friends and colleagues.
“This 4 Jay-Z mixtape isn’t really about the hits, because we can play Jay-Z hits all day, its essentially about the lyrical versatility and growth of an artist who wasn’t ashamed of where he came from and wasn’t afraid to push boundaries do the impossible and keep people thinking.” ~lissa monét
download + share + enjoy
Happy Birthday Mr. Carter.
