Album: Watch The Throne
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Roc Nation/Def Jam
Producer: Kanye West
With a great Otis Redding sample on an otherwise minimalist beat, "Otis" is soulfully triumphant. Kanye and Jay-Z go back and fourth, complimenting each other while showing us exactly how good the good life is. Short and sweet, "Otis" was the perfect upbeat tune for our summer playlist. Not bad, for some immigrants.
