All Money Is Legal is the debut studio album by American rapper Amil
(pictured). A hip hop album, it was released on August 29, 2000,
through Roc-A-Fella, Columbia, and Sony Music. Jay-Z, Damon Dash, and
Amil served as executive producers. Future spouses Jay-Z and Beyoncé
met for the first time during the album's recording sessions. Although
Jay-Z had written Amil's verses for their past collaborations, she wrote
her own lyrics for all of the album's tracks. The songs focus on wealth
and, to a lesser degree, Amil's personal life. Reviews were mixed;
critics were divided over the album's production and Amil's verses. It
peaked at number 45 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Two singles – "I
Got That" with vocals from Beyoncé and "4 da Fam" with verses from
Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel, and Jay-Z – were released from the album
and promoted with accompanying music videos. "I Got That" reached number
one on the Bubbling Under R&B;/Hip-Hop Singles Billboard chart, and "4
da Fam" charted on Hot R&B;/Hip-Hop Songs..

Wikiquote quote of the day:
No one of good character leaves behind a wasted life — whether
they die in obscurity or renown. "Character," wrote the 19th Century
evangelist, Dwight Moody, "is what you are in the dark." Your character
is not tested on occasions of public scrutiny or acclaim. It is not
tested in moments when the object of your actions is the regard of
another. Your character is what you are to yourself, not what you
pretend to be to yourself or others. Although human beings often attempt
self-delusion, we cannot forever hide the truth about ourselves from
ourselves. It will make itself known to us by means of our conscience
despite our most strenuous effort to suppress it.
