Special Ed Stars in the First Episode of Complex TV's New Series "Magnum Opus"

When Special Ed was just a 16-year-old high school student living in Brooklyn, he connected with “Hitman” Howie Tee and recorded a bombastically boastful song called “I Got It Made.” The song became the hit single off his debut album for Profile Records, Youngest In Charge, which sold more than a million copies, making the teenager’s bold words seem like prophecy.

For the first edition of our new series “Magnum Opus,” Complex TV digs deep into the story behind the making of this hip-hop classic, speaking with fellow rappers like Dres from Black Sheep, Jarobi from A Tribe Called Quest, and Jeru The Damaja, as well as producers Pete Rock, The Twilite Tone, Rashad Smith, music executive D. Prosper, and of course Edward Archer himself.

Head to Complex TV and watch the story of how "I Got It Made" became Special Ed's Magnum Opus.
