Jay-Z - Anything
Produced by Sam Sneed and P. Skam, Anything sampled Lionel Bart's I’ll Do Anything lyrics and musical composition from the musical Oliver!. In the song Jay-Z throws away his usual ghetto gangster lyrics, and instead brings us a song about the love he has for his family and best friend.
The song was originally supposed to featured be on 1999’s Vol. 3 … Life and Times of S. Carter, but was moved to Beanie Sigel’s 2000 debut album The Truth after the North American promotional copy of Vol. 3 was heavily bootlegged and Hov decided to shuffle the tracklist for the official release.
Jay-Z admitted to friend Angie Martinez in a 2009 interview on the BET program Food for Thought that he hoped the song would be a success like Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) due to their similarities, but was rather surprised and disappointed when it wasn’t.
