The 50 Best Timbaland Beats

42. Jay-Z f/ Memphis Bleek & Amil "Hey Papi" (2000)

Album: Nutty Professor II: The Klumps soundtrack
Label: Def Jam

2000's "Hey Papi" appeared on the soundtrack to Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps, which dropped right in the middle of the run of hit singles off Jay's Vol. 3: The Life & Times of S. Carter. It featured Jay and Bleek trading bars about the ideal girls and a call-and-response chorus between Jay and Amil. Timbaland's production was all over the place, opening on fuzzed-out synths and a veil of static that give away to a droning hiccup noise midway through each verse and closing on gently picked guitars and xylophones on the fadeout.
