  1. Im not a huge fan of old Jay-Z but always thought the 'thiggida-thiggida' styles of The Originators was his first outing.

    It's great to go back to High Potent and hear a completely original flow before the tongue twisting took hold

    Top man

    Cheers

  2. Yeah I always wondered why "Hawaiian Sophie" was mentioned quite often on blogs, in articles etc. as being the first Jay-Z appearance. I started to think that there must be an alternate version, since the album version didn't sport a Jay verse. Good to know that indeed there isn't one.
    HP Gets Busy is nice. Cool 80's sound.
