The 50 Best Guest Verses of All Time

7. Jay-Z on Kanye West's "Diamonds (Remix)" (2005)

Album: Late Registration
Producer: Kanye West, Jon Brion, Devo Springsteen
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam

Kanye got a taste of his own medicine when he invited Hova to bless the "Diamonds" remix. Jay silences all the doubters with quotable after quotable addressing the aftermath of Roc-A-Fella, infamously declaring "I'm a business, man!" and shitting-on Memphis Bleek's career while assuring him that he's never going to have a work another day in his life.

Kanye later conceded defeat on "Big Brother," when he revealed: "On that 'Diamonds' remix I swore I'd spaz/Then my big brother came through and kicked my ass."
