“Said the ladies, they love me, from the bleachers they screamin’
All the ballers is bouncin’, they like the way I be leanin’
All the rappers be hatin’ off the track that I’m makin’
But all the hustlers, they love it, just to see one of us make it
Came from the bottom of the bottom, to the top of the pops
N____, London, Japan and I’m straight off the block
Like a running back, get it? Man, I’m straight off the block
I can run it back, n____, ‘cause I’m straight with the Roc”

Jay-Z at the top of his game. Sometimes you just have to bump some bass and beats, and back in the ’00s Timbaland was unstoppable. 16 years later and this track is still ridiculous. I love watching the video of Jay-Z’s expression the first time Timbaland played him this beat.
