Album: Jay-Z: Unplugged
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam
Not that you needed any incentive to pick up Jay-Z: Unplugged, but this bonus cut had people talking—literally. Jay's last collaboration with Ski Beatz—dropped during the height of the Jay-Z vs. Nas feud (Unplugged and Stillmatic dropped on the same day)—so one would assume Hov was throwing shots at the Little Homie here: “Don't you know when you're defeated/Won't you throw, throw in the towel I'm better with vowels.” It was never specified who was on the receiving end of those barbs, but whoever the “featherweight fucker” was absolutely got sonned.
35. Jay-Z "People Talkin" (2001)
