#34. Kanye West f/ Really Doe & Nas "We Major" (2005)

#34. Kanye West f/ Really Doe & Nas "We Major" (2005)

Produced By: Kanye West, Jon Brion, Warryn "Baby Dubb" Campbell
Album: Late Registration
Label: Roc-A-Fella
So heavenly you expect Jesus to walk in through parted clouds, the ridiculously exuberant music for "We Major" is just shy of a full-on religious experience. Putting you in a good mood a few seconds after it drops ('Ye, rightfully announces he's "Feeling better than some head on a Sunday afternoon/Better than a chick that say yes too soon"), the celestial output hits like warm rays of sunshine.

No wonder Nas thinks aloud on how to set off his stanza: "I heard the beat and I ain't know what to write/First line, should it be about the hoes or the ice?/.44's or Black Christ?/Both flows would be nice." Taking the positive route, he proceeds to share his feelings about the industry, telling us that somehow the crack game still reminds him of the crack game: "And I love to give my blood, sweat, and tears to the mic/So y'all copped the LPs and y'all fiends got dealt/I'm Jesse Jackson on the balcony where King got killed."

But perhaps the most important moment is when Mr. West poses one of man's toughest questions about the sportin' life: "Ask the Reverend was the strip clubs cool/If my tips help send a pretty girl through school?" Ah, yes—rap, the gift that keeps on giving.
