“Like a stranger damn I just shot my n*gga
And ran off into the night as if it was not my n*gga
Left the scene how could I go out that way
Still you asked to see me in the hospital the next day
You must love me…”
“You Must Love Me” was Jay-Z before the fame (Vol. 2 brought that). The final song on his sophomore album arguably represented the realest moment on wax of Jay-Z’s career. Just listen to the content of the three verses. The pictures painted were so vivid that, nearly 14 years after its release, digesting the record is still difficult without developing an unsettling feeling in your stomach.
