Freeway's 25 Favorite Albums

Jay-Z, Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life (1998)


Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam

Freeway: ”That’s gotta be one of my favorite albums from Jay. My favorite song that he had on that joint was 'It’s Like That.' I love that record to this day, I’ve probably listened to that record about one million times.

"Besides that, it was just a breath of fresh air. It was huge for Philly, because he had Beans on 'Reservoir Dogs.' That track is bananas. One thing about Jay, no matter what hot niggas he’s got on his track, he always stands out. He came at the end of that joint and murked it. I really miss how rap used to be like that, back in the day.”
