SongOfTheDay: Jay Z – Hard Knock Life (Saturday 29th September 2018)

As a kid I hated Hard Knock Life. Not even conscious of Jay Z, it was the Annie sampling chorus that grated upon me. Sure, it was (and still is) catchy but that only aided my irrational hatred towards the track. It would get stuck in my head, and the hatred would only grow bigger. I’ve since become a fan of Hov. The Black Album is probably what I’d pinpoint as the quintessential rap album, although many prefer Vol 2….Hard Knock Life which was released 20 years ago today. In celebration of the classic Jay Z album’s anniversary, Hard Knock Life is our SongOfTheDay.
