The beat itself is a Kanye West and DJ A-Trak original. “Gold Digger"'s most notable features, however, are two interpolations: Ray Charles' “I Got a Woman” (“She gives me money!“), covered by Jamie Foxx, and David Pryor's “Get down, girl, go 'head, get down” ad lib from Thunder & Lightning's “Bumpin' Bus Stop,” the latter proving contentious when the late Pryor's estate got around to suing Kanye in 2013 for infringement.
