Jay-Z on his 1997 album In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 took to Twitter on Sunday to explain how he felt about it. Hov‘s rare insight into his second studio album was prompted by a tweet from Questlove, who quoted a fan who argued that LP‘s lead single, “(Always Be My) Sunshine,” was better than people remember.
“Our main argument is his hate for Vol 1,” Questlove wrote. “He is embarrassed for trying to make a monster & not putting numbers up. But ALOT of this lp contains his best moments. Fight me @sc.” Jay-Z later offered his thoughts on the album, writing:
“It‘s accepted. What‘s more, I know what it could be, so I can‘t stop thinking about it. The first song was made while the streets were watching!”
Agreed . More so, I know what could have been, so it haunts me … streets is watching was the first song made ! https://t.co/Nh7rwZ8gZ4

When you hear Players you got two sides to choose….you wanna be the cat who who got leathers…..or you wanna be the cat asking the cat if you got leathers. I wasn’t thinking “big” then (I was living in my smallness in 97 lol) but I knew I was NEVER gonna be the latter

Hard Knock Life made its second bid as the seventh best album among 2007‘s American Gangster and 2013‘s Magna Carta Holy Grail.
