Today marks the 15th anniversary of Jay-Z’s first album Reasonable Doubt. It was the summer of 1996 in San Francisco and I recently graduated from 8th grade at Marina Middle School. Me and my big brother were about to embark on a 2 week vacation to Florida that night to visit family as part of my grad present. That tape (yes,bought it on cassette) was on my to do list before we hopped on that plane, as well as Resident Evil for Playstation one! (The Sony Playstation was also a grad present! I love my parents). Me and my brother took turns with the walkman during the flight and we each listened to it back to back twice! Brooklyns’s Finest bein the standout track at the time. From that day on it remained one of my favorite albums ever & still gets #HeavyRotation today like it first came out. So to all my Reasonable Doubt fans, bump this album today and remember it like it was your first.
