15. Ghostface Killah f/ Raekwon, Cappadonna, & The Force M.D.s "Daytona 500" (1996)
Label: Razor Sharp/Epic Street
"Daytona 500" kept it 100 on a traditional level, incorporating the cherished and often-used "Nautilus" by Bob James as its primary sample and scratching in old Clan material for the intros of each verse ("Ghost...Face...Killlllllaaahhh!"). That wasn't all. Bringing back the Force M.D.s was not only classy, but a wise choice. The old-school crooners spin their melodic magic and help give the song a vintage feel, which was a nice alternative to going for the obvious hottest-R&B-star-of-the-moment. The animated video, which expertly jacked footage from the 1960s cartoon Speed Racer, received favorable feedback from the fans. "Daytona 500" found Ghost, Rae, and Cappa in the winner's circle one more time.
