Album: The Dynasty: Roc La Familia
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam
Regardless of what Jigga's former artists may have to say in 2011, when you were rolling with the Roc, Jay was riding with you. Period.
On his Dynasty album, which was first intended to be a compilation showcasing the label's roster, he gave all his artists the opportunity to show and prove. And on “1-900-Hustler, everyone stepped up to the plate. The concept for this record was built around a hotline (a paid one at that) where you could call for hot tips on the drug game. Imagine having Jay, Beans, and Bleek standing by to assist you with your inquiries.
This popular album cut is also noteworthy for being the world's first look at a hungry young spitter from Philadelphia by the name of Freeway.
