If there's any misconception about how superb Kanye's verse is on "Run This Town," just check the video. You can see Jay-Z mouthing the lyrics right along with 'Ye, almost as if he wished the awesome 32-bar verse was his. Yeezy didn't just rattle off one of the best raps of his career, he also defeated his teacher. When XXL asked Jay-Z about being outrapped by 'Ye he conceded the point: "As long as I've been in the game, that's going to happen, once or twice or even three times." In other words, "Yeah Ye got me, but I've won so many times—who's counting?"
