27. Kanye West f/ Young Jeezy "Amazing" (2008)
Album: 808s & Heartbreak
Producer: Kanye West, Jeff Bhasker
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam
Simply put, “Amazing” is a beautiful record. The beat was simplistic yet extravagant, dark yet radiant. Jeff Bhasker’s elegant keys, and the backing percussion meshed perfectly with the wild beast noises that littered much of 808s. Only a producer like Kanye West could understand how Jeezy’s wheezy d-boy flow would make sense on such an exotic record. Yeezy wailed while Jeezy grunted—it shouldn’t make sense, but it does.
