1996 debut album from the camel-faced, b-boning one. Still firmly planted in the Marcy state of mind, this was Jay's closest equivalent to Ready To Die. Includes the hits "Can't Knock the Hustle, Brooklyn's Finest, Dead Presidents II, Feelin It, Aint No Nigga, 22 Two's, Friend or Foe," and others. Double LP version, full pic sleeve.
