Mary J. Blige hailed it as “one of the most incredible albums ever made” and the record influenced a generation of soul and hip-hop artists.

A work of art yet to be rivaled by any artist, let alone a female MC. It changed the game, literally and opened a lane for what would ultimately spawn into neo-soul and the reemergence of conscious music with a musical vibe and intensified spirit.

We miss you girl!
