Put together as a guest mix for WhoSampled by Classic Material’s Chris Read in July 2013 to coincide with the release of Jay Z’s ‘Magna Carta, Holy Grail’ album. Here’s what they had to say about it at the time:
“Coinciding with the release of Jay-Z’s twelfth studio album ‘Magna Carta… Holy Grail’, once again we dig in the vaults, this time to bring you a retrospective of some of our favourite source material from Jay-Z’s 20+ year career. With a little bias toward the late ‘90s classics which forged his reputation as a major player, we take in samples sources from early 90s collaborations with Jaz and Original Flavor all the way through to ‘Magna Carta… Holy Grail’. Many of the classics are represented and a few less prominent cuts too.”
