Jay-Z has revealed that he isn’t very fond of his second studio album, Vol. 1.
The rap legend shared this thought after Questlove quote-tweeted a fan who argued that the project’s lead single “(Always Be My) Sunshine” is better than most people think.
“Our main argument is his hate for Vol 1,” Questlove wrote. “He is embarrassed for trying to make a monster & not putting numbers up. But ALOT of this lp contains his best moments. Fight me @sc.”
And Jay-Z responded. “Agreed. More so, I know what could have been, so it haunts me. Streets is watching was the first song made!”
See the exchange:
Agreed . More so, I know what could have been, so it haunts me … streets is watching was the first song made ! https://t.co/Nh7rwZ8gZ4

When you hear Players you got two sides to choose….you wanna be the cat who who got leathers…..or you wanna be the cat asking the cat if you got leathers. I wasn’t thinking “big” then (I was living in my smallness in 97 lol) but I knew I was NEVER gonna be the latter
