While the first two albums are for true "hip-hop heads", this album catered more to the mainstream, by sampling songs from other genres such as the musical "Annie" for the hit song, "Hard Knock Life". The critically acclaimed album was ranked number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums from the 1990s. It also was his first album to peak at 1 on the Billboard 200. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β € The album even won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, but Jay Z refused to come as a form of boycotting. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β € The New York native told MTV, "I am boycotting the Grammys because too many major rap artists continue to be overlooked. Rappers deserve more attention from the Grammy committee and from the whole world. If it's got a gun everybody knows about it; but if we go on a world tour, no one knows."
