Jay Z's debut album, "Reasonable Doubt," dropped in 1996, unleashing Hov onto the world. Almost 19 years later, a pre-"Reasonable Doubt" demo tape has surfaced. Containing several features from Sauce Money, who worked with Jay Z back in the day, these 10 tracks give a rare glimpse into the rapper's earlier years. The quality of the tracks varies, but all are listenable and should be appreciated as rare artifacts of hip-hop history. Listen and pray that Jay Z will remaster these tracks:
