Twenty years ago, Jay-Z changed the landscape of hip hop with his debut album “Reasonable Doubt.”

To commemorate and celebrate the historic occasion, TIDAL has put together a documentary commemorating the classic named Jaÿ-Z: RD20. The 36-minute black-and-white film features commentary from those who had a hand in making the seminal album including Memphis Bleek, Kareem “Biggs” Burke, Briant “B-High” Biggs, DJ Premier, Clark Kent, and more.

Reasonable Doubt showed the mentality of the bosses versus the runners,” said Tone Hooker. “The irony is, to this day, everybody is a boss or trying to appear like Jay first appeared in that album versus when in the ’90s everybody just wanted to be the best rapper. Now everybody wanna be the best hustler.”



Tidal shared a preview of the short film, which can be seen below. The full documentary is available exclusively to Tidal subscribers.
