Jay Z ‘Reasonable Doubt’ 20th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by DJ Matman

Classic Material contributor DJ Matman has contributed a mix to WhoSampled x Wax Poetics album anniversary mixtape series.

Blurb from WhoSampled:

“This coming week marks the 20th Anniversary of Jay Z‘s ‘Reasonable Doubt’. With a rap career dating back to 1989 including stints as side man to mentor, Jaz, features for the likes of the Dame Dash managed Original Flavor and Big Daddy Kane, Reasonable Doubt (released June 25th 1996) arrived late in the rapper’s career for a debut LP. With production from DJ Premier and Clark Kent, plus features from Mary J Blige and Notorious B.I.G it sits stylistically somewhere between the dominant underground sound of the mid 90s and the emerging sound pushed by labels such as Puffy‘s Bad Boy records which would come to define popular hip hop and R&B into the late 1990s. At the intersection between those sounds lies a varied selection of sample material.”
