** Amil, "All Money Is Legal," Roc-A-Fella/Columbia. The New Yorker gained instant fame on Jay-Z's 1998 single "Can I Get A . . ." On her uneven debut album, the nasal-voiced rapper should have featured Jay-Z more often, as many of her songs lack the spark that marked her tag-team debut. Amil is better as a second fiddle than she is on her own, although she shows promise when she becomes more personal in her storytelling.
