The 100 Best Jay-Z Songs

43. Jay-Z "Come And Get Me" (2000)

Producer: Timbaland
Album: Vol. 3...The Life And Times Of S. Carter
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam


Paranoia runs rampant in the entertainment industry—and rightfully so. Countless rappers have been relieved of their material possessions and had their gangster tested over the years.

On this certified banger,Jay decided to take a stand. Instead of hiding from those scheming goons, he confronted them head on, threatening to "remove your roof" and "let the sun shine in." Don't let the money fool you, he was still Shawn Carter from BK: “I'm a crook like you/I took like you/I disobeyed the law/Threw out the book like you”

While Jay and Timbaland are best known for their blockbuster singles, Tim has also given Jay some of his stronger album cuts over the years—the best of which fell on Vol. 3. On “Come And Get Me,” Jay ripped two separate Timbo beats, taunting and prodding his adversaries to stop their talking and come see him face to face.
