Producer: Swizz Beatz
Album: Ryde Or Die Vol. 1
Label: Ruff Ryders/Interscope


Leave it to Jay to steal the show on a compilation set to showcase the roster of a competing record label. When Ruff Ryders dropped Ryde or Die Vol. 1 in the spring of 1999, listeners immediately gravitated towards track four, which featured the catchy, bubbly, sing-a-long chorus coupled with a siren screeching beat that set the streets on fire.

“Jigga My Nigga” would later be released as a single, reaching #28 on the Billboard Hot 100 (the highest charting single from the compilation), further cementing Jay and Swizz Beatz as a force to be reckoned with. Do you even remember the DMX records on Ride or Die Vol. 1? We rest our case.
