N.A.S.A.'s "Gifted" (2009)
Album: The Spirit of Apollo
It's usually a mistake to put a Kanye West verse first on one of his features since he pretty much kills everything he's on. So it's no surprise that Mr. West stole the show on N.A.S.A's "Gifted." This overlooked verse also had premonitions of some of the iconic moments in Mr. West's career - such as his performance at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards ("And my jacket kinda fresh, bright red/And as usual, my pants tight-threaded").
