Remember partying so hard in the sex, drugs & hiphop lifestyle night after night that you needed a few days to just chill? That's "Do It Again (Put Ya Hands Up)." Beanie Sigel makes the most of his two minutes, and Amil's asides make her a more-than-ample replacement for former Jigga foil Foxy Brown. "Snoopy Track," a high-distortion Timbaland track with a Juvenile hook, is my favorite, and it wasn't even gonna make the album until the bootleg drama. Remember pouring through college textbooks with highlighter, until the whole page was yellow 'cause all the information was worth savoring? S. Carter is like that. "It's Hot (Some Like It Hot)," "S. Carter," "So Ghetto"you can't even begin to quote Jay-Z because so many tracks are filled with witty gems.
Vol. 3 . . . Life and Times of S. Carter
Remember when Rakim was the best MC in hiphop?
