All Money Is Legal, also known as A.M.I.L.: (All Money Is Legal), is the debut studio album by American rapper Amil. It was released on August 29, 2000, through Roc-A-Fella, Columbia, and Sony Music. Rapper Jay-Z and music executive Damon Dash served as its executive producers with Amil. Record producer Just Blaze also contributed to the record, and later said that his work on the album improved his reputation within Roc-A-Fella. A hip hop album, All Money Is Legal focuses on wealth and Amil's personal life. It was recorded between 1999 and 2000 at Playground Studios in Los Angeles and at The Cutting Room, The Hit Factory, and Quad Studios in New York City. Though Jay-Z had written Amil's verses for their past collaborations, she developed her own lyrics for all of the album's tracks. While the album primarily consists of Amil rapping, she sings on some tracks. Reviews of the album were mixed; critics were divided over its production and Amil's verses. Commercially, 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, while "4 da Fam" made appearances on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs Billboard charts. Amil's musical hiatus following the album's release led to Roc-A-Fella dropping the rapper.
