0126 Jay Z and Kanye West – Murder to Excellence @ 2:53

Friday, October 28th, 2011

“do you know who I am Clarice..?”

When this album came out, I thought Kanye was killin’ Jay lyrically, but on this track, Jay Z claims his title. The beat switch, which only these 2 could pull off,¬† makes it even better when you finally get to 2:53. This song sounds the freshest on the album, the least gimmicky, and lyrically the opulence and black power from both of them is just deadly.

Murder to Excellence 2:53 – 3:32
