Mr. Lucky Lefty

Jay-Z - Vol, 3. The Life and Times of S. Carter [The Samples]
(Megaupload for now, I'll mirror somewhere else later)

This is another Chris Paul-David West alley-hoop from Thomas. Ivan and Kev have already done most of Jay's catalog (except "Kingdom Come", which I started on a few days ago). Since this album was made at the height of the whole early 200o's Timbo and Swizzy induced Cassio-craze there aren't as many samples as there are on a usual Jay album; But the ones here are especially serious (The two "Big Pimpin" samples are the on opposite sides of the music spectrum but are both works of immaculate beauty).

The Burining of The Midnight Lamp ['Hova Song (Intro-Outro)'] 1 Rotary Connection 4:42 Vol. 3... Life And Times Of S. Carter [The Samples]
Crop Dustin' ['So Ghetto'] 2 Steve Cropper 3:05 Vol. 3... Life And Times Of S. Carter [The Samples]

Gabby, No Homo would only count if you were a guy (it wouldn't even count if I was a girl, since as we know all women a unisexual). But I know you know that and you're only fucking with me.

I really like this album. If Un Rivera wouldn't have bootlegged it and made Jay go back and add additional tracks...this would have high on my personal list.
