HipHopWired Featured Video

Jay Z has come very long way since his day spittin’ bars before he dropped his class debut, Reasonable Doubt. No some alleged demos from the Hip-Hop mogul’s halcyon days have made it onto the Internets. 

Mass Appeal dropped a 10-song demo that consists of early Jay Z cuts with former good buddy Sauce Money appearing on half of the cuts. Sounds like a bunch of stray cuts (peep the J-Love drops on “What’s In A Name”) from back in the day were pieced together.

Hova is definitely raw (and in speedy flow mode), but the talent is clearly evident. Shout out to Fu-Schnickens and Das-EFX.

Check out the Jay Z demo tape below.
