submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#48 "December 4th," Jay-Z (Roc-A-Fella)

Including guest appearances, Jigga is on 6 records on this chart, more than anyone - and all of 'em in the top 50. Half of those are solo cuts, this being the first of two from The Black Album. And no, this isn't included because he and I share a birthday. *chuckle* This is a big mash of swirling strings, S. Carter giving an "where I'm comin' from" treatise in under 5:00, and spoken interludes from his Moms, talking about her boy's formative years. If this really is his final album - and I hope it's not - the best/most popular rapper of the past decade can exit, stage left with his head held very high.
