5. Kanye West "Last Call" (2004)
Album: The College Dropout
Producer: Kanye West
Kanye arguably perfected the art of the sped up sample. On "Last Call," he took Bette Midler's "Mr. Rockefeller" and made it fit within the Roc's landscape. How appropriate, given the historical Roc-A-Fella label was loosely based on the New York City tycoon's family name.
