    :huhldup: Yeah right he dropped Hard Knock Life by that point, maybe 1996-1997, not 1999.

    hiphop was the biggest not the only genre popping back in 1999, not everyone watched the mtv videos.

    He had just sold 5 million, so obviously people knew him but he wasn't international pop star levels of fame like today.

    But this was just 3 years after his debut back before internet and shyt, most rappers were just known among people who cared about hiphop. Today with the internet and shyt, it's another thing. But still J Cole could also be unknown at Brad Pitts party in 2017 and he has been selling out arenas for 3-4 years, Jay was just about to start selling out arenas. It's also just like Paul McCartney and Beck got left in the bushes at Tygas party
