18. Jay-Z & Kanye West "Murder to Excellence" (2011)
Album: Watch The Throne
Producer: Swizz Beatz, S1
The identical twin sisters who comprise The Indiggo Twins probably had no idea that one day they'd land on a track by Jay-Z and Kanye West. But they did. Leave it to Swizz Beatz to find the tribal pop track and sample the opening "La La La" for "Murder to Excellence." With Swizz's reworking of the line, the sample becomes haunting as The Throne discuss the rise in murder rates coupled with black on black crime.
