Cipha Sounds Presents: The 75 Greatest Tunnel Bangers

53. Jay-Z f/ The LOX, Beanie Sigel & Sauce Money "Reservoir Dogs" (1998)

Producer: Rockwilder
Album: Vol. 2...Hard Knock Life
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam

Cipha Sounds: "A classic posse-cut record, reminiscent of the old-school 'Live at the Barbecue'-type records. It used to get played to the end. And Jay-Z referenced 'E-ZPass' before anyone else. Sidebar: It says produced by Erick Sermon, but it was actually produced by Rockwilder. 'Do It Again' was officially Rockwilder's first big Tunnel record, but he told us he did 'Reservoir.' Erick told him they could get more money if he put his name on it."
