Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Prolific hip-hop superstar Jay-Z certainly knows how to capture attention and
stay in the spotlight. From his brash declarations of being Notorious B.I.G.'s
heir to repeatedly stoking the fire of a dangerous feud with Nas, the
Brooklynite is certainly a master of stirring up controversy. However, while his
unpredictable nature helps to keep eyes pointed in his direction, it's his
lyrics that have earned him fame, along with the respect of many critics, fans,
and fellow rappers.
After the release of THE BLACK ALBUM--his powerful, supposedly final testament--Jay-Z returned to headlines without even trying. The record inspired a cult following in the world of underground remixers, who proceeded to "mash up" the album (sans licence) by combining Jay-Z's vocals with music from pop and rock albums. In reaction to this phenomenon, Jay-Z comes back with his over-the-counter THE BLACK ALBUM (ACAPPELLA), which presents the whole disc, minus the instrumentation. Taken alone, the cuts are intense on their own account, but the true treat for fans is the ability to play DJ with the album for their own enjoyment.
