The 50 Best Guest Verses of All Time

10. Kanye West on Jay-Z's "Run This Town" (2009)

Album: The Blueprint 3
Producer: Kanye West, No I.D.
Label: Roc Nation, Atlantic

Ye's spirited contribution to the second single from The Blueprint 3 is notable for a number of reasons. First, it contains the first significant entry into the genre of White Wine Rap when he quips: "I'm beasting off the riesling." Second, he manages to deride not one but two major car brands (Volvo and Toyota). Last but certainly not least, Kanye pulls-off the best non-Dipset use of the "no homo" disclaimer following his announcement that everybody's on his dick, proving once and for all that showoffs always perform best when they're stealing somebody else's spotlight.
