Jay-Z “Fallin” (2007)

Album: American Gangster

Label: Def Jam

No I.D.: “So ‘Fallin’ was another record I did with Jermaine [Dupri]. The chops were real choppy on that, and I was somewhat known for sample beats. It was also something we’re not used to hearing from Jermaine and his whole So So Def sound. It was a hardcore hip-hop record, not something to dance to.”
