In 1998, the hip-hop world rumbled when this album dropped. s Jigga's aggressive R&B takeover is at its most highly pronounced on "Can I Get a...," "Money Cash Hoes," and "Money Ain't a Thang." Then there's the verbal dexterity and brash cleverness of "Nigga Who, Nigga What" and the title track (which samples from the musical Annie musical). The album is an accurate snapshot of Jay-Z in 1998, but its "mind on my money/money on my mind" attitude that will split Jay-Z fans forever.
