Classic Albums – Jay-Z: Reasonable Doubt
Friday 4 July
11.35pm-12.30am
BBC TWO
www.bbc.co.uk/music

 

Two days after Jay-Z headlines at Glastonbury 2008, Classic Albums reveals the story behind his first album, Reasonable Doubt.

 

Jay-Z is one of the biggest names in hip hop. His rise to fame was heralded by his debut album, which told the bitter-sweet story of a street hustler from Brooklyn, using coded lyrics supported by rich soul samples.

 

Classic Albums, directed by Jeremy Marre, uncovers how and why Reasonable Doubt was made, examines the moral maze its story presents and reveals how an album Jay-Z refers to as "the foundation of everything I've done" was widely misunderstood on its release.

 

The programme features interviews with album contributors including Mary J Blige, Foxy Brown and Kanye West, alongside rare home movies, original sound samples and multi-camera performance footage.

BBC Four presents an evening of programmes devoted to iconic Australian musician Nick Cave.

 

Cave began his long and eclectic music career back in 1973 with cult band The Birthday Party, who enjoyed success in Europe on the back of the punk scene with their intense live performances, featuring a shrieking and contorting Cave.

 

After they split in 1984, Cave continued exploring his obsessions with religion, death, love, America and violence in the Bad Seeds, who, to date, have released 14 albums.

 

Cave also has a musical side project on the go, Grinderman; has collaborated with artists including PJ Harvey, Shane MacGowan, Wim Wenders and Kylie Minogue; is a screenwriter and author of acclaimed novel And The Ass Saw The Angel; and is an occasional actor. He currently lives in Brighton.
