Overview

On the heels of his lucrative Hard Knock Life tour with DMX, that tour's accompanying Backstage documentary film and soundtrack, and his multi-platinum Volume 3...The Life and Times of Sean Carter, Jay-Z continues his winning streak with The Dynasty: Roc La Familia 2000, an all-star collaboration that will keep the urban landscape bouncing to his club and radio-friendly beats. As always, Jay-Z, who is arguably New York's most loved MC, delivers a versatile mix of danceable tracks, such as the humorous lead single "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" and the catchy, Rocwilder-produced "Guilty Until Proven Innocent," which features R. Kelly. Jay spikes the entertaining mix with several rugged posse cuts, such as the angst-ridden "You, Me, Him and Her," which features Roc-a-Fella fam members Beanie Sigel, Amil, and Memphis Bleek. Other guest shots include Scarface on the xylophone-accented "This Can't Be Life" and Snoop on the gangster-tough "Get Your Mind Right Mami." Jay-Z also has his more reflective moments: The nostalgic "Soon You'll Understand" is a melodic musing on forbidden love, and "Where Have You Been," on which Beanie chimes in again, is a moving narrative about fatherless children. Mr. Carter never keeps his fans waiting long for new material, and The Dynasty puts his prolific tendencies to good use. Abby Addis
