20 Underrated Jay-Z Songs

Jay-Z "Who You Wit" (1997)

Album: Sprung (Music from and Inspired By the Motion Picture)
Label: Qwest/Warner Bros.
Producer: Ski

Let this sink in for a moment: in 1997, "Who You Wit" was Jay-Z's second biggest radio hit after "Ain't No" (third if you count his feature on Foxy Brown's "I'll Be"), and would remain so until his unending parade of megahits began in the summer of '98. The track was initially released on the soundtrack to the forgettable Tisha Campbell comedy Sprung. And just as Jay penned new verses to put "Dead Presidents II" on Reasonable Doubt, he would write a new third verse for the version of "Who You Wit" which would appear on In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 later in the year—including the unknowingly appropriate double-entendre, "I sink this ball in your hole/I'm Tiger Woods!" —Al Shipley
