It was the interlude heard 'round the world. Or better yet, a "Public Service Announcement" for anyone who thought Jay Z had lost a step during his then-final studio release The Black Album. The 2003 record was produced by Just Blaze, who delivered on a soulful banger that captured a raw East Coast attitude. In a little under three minutes Hov slayed the competition. The rest, as they say, was history.
In an intervew with Revolt TV Just Blaze describes the making of "PSA." He says Jay Z rapped his lyrics in between an extensive press run, dropping four bars at a time before the record was completely finished. He also makes it clear that he and Jay both knew they were doing something special with this record. And boy did it turn out amazing. Watch the full clip above.
