Well Done Filet Mignon: 12 Hottest Food Lyrics from Reasonable Doubt

It was June 25, 1996. The heartbeat pulsed and we nodded to the incomparable duo of Jay Z and Mary J. Blige - the confident Roc-A-Fella rap mafioso and the melodic Queen of Hip-Hop and R&B. It was the day Reasonable Doubt dropped. And you know us, we had to pay homage to the food lyrics that appeared on Jigga’s first, classic album.

Roll heavy dough’ with us as we celebrate Reasonable Doubt’s 20th Anniversary. Jay, Dame and Biggs - CHEERS! Love is Love!
