20 Years Ago today, Jay-Z dropped his third studio album "Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life". The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 & the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart & is RIAA Certified 5x Platinum. The singles released include "Can I Get A..." peaking at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 & #6 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart, "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)" (#15 & #10), "Money, Cash, Hoes," (#36 R&B/Hip-Hop), & "Nigga What, Nigga Who (Originator 99)" (#84 & #23). Produced by an array of superstar hip-hop producers of Roc-A-Fella Records & by Jay-Z himself, “Vol 2... Hard Knock Life” is a Hip-Hop album & marked the major mainstream breakthrough for Jay Z. The album is Jay-Z's most commercially successful album to date, with him winning the 1999 Grammy Award for "Best Rap Album", but once again (and to be expected at the time), The category was not scheduled to be aired, therefore, he did not attended the ceremony, boycotting the Grammys that year. He would not win another Grammy Award until his 2003 Collaboration with Beyoncé for "Crazy In Love", in 2004. Mainstream music media outlets praised "Vol 2... Hard Knock Life" as his best album ever recorded, even though other hip-hop media outlets have argued this to be debated, compared to his other works: GENIUS as they are ✔️ HAPPY 20th ANNIVERSARY "Vol 2...
