One of the first peeks we got at The Throne in action was on this remix of Kanye's "Diamonds from Sierra Leone." At the time, there were many questions surrounding Jigga following the nasty breakup of Roc-A-Fella Records and his retirement from rap to become the President of Def Jam. But all questions were answered by Jay's blazing verse. Even Yeezy had to admit defeat as he would later rhyme on "Big Brother", "On that 'Diamonds Remix' I swore I'd spaz/Then my big brother came through and kicked my ass."
