Discovering the Relevance of Words
There are great albums, and then there are absolute classic albums. Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt is one of those absolute classic albums. From the music to the well written lyricism, there are few hip-hop albums that can even come close to touching the quality of this album.
What I love most about this documentary, is that Jay-Z, along with each of the producers, gives the story behind both the music, as well as the the lyrics. Jay breaks down the lyrical content of the album, and walks you through what each of the major metaphors means, and how the wordplay is used in order to capture the exact emotion of the moment.
It’s a pretty impressive look inside on of those rare classic albums.
