DJ Mister Cee
The Best Of Jay Z: Lifetime Pt II (1998)

The B-side of this tape is mostly joints off Jigga's 'Hard Knock Life' LP, but there's some gems to be found on the A-side such as the opening 'Roc-A-Fella Shit' which flips the same sample as MOP's 'World Famous' (and Scarface's My Block'). Sauce Money appearances are always welcome around these parts and Cee also pulls out a few lesser spotted R&B guest spots. Jay Z had really hit his stride around '98 and this captures that era nicely.

This is another Junior Pepaseed sureshot...
