“Can I Get A…” features Jay-Z, almost counter-intuitively, letting women know that money can’t buy love. Under producer Irv Gotti’s watchful eye Hov employs new Roc-A-Fella Records signee Amil to respond to his claims with her own concerns about the other sex, and gives a young Ja Rule a chance to provide his personal impressions of females.

Containing a sample of OutKast’s “Git Up, Git Out,” “Can I Get A…” is notable for popularizing Ja and Amil; as well as becoming one of Hov’s most commercially successful singles at the time, peaking at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #6 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks.

The track was first released in September 1998 as a single on Def Jam’s Rush Hour Soundtrack in promotion of the hit film Rush Hour. It would later be included on Hov’s third studio album Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life.
