Not to royally exaggerate, but when [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm]‘s highly-anticipated upcoming album Watch The Throne comes out, every other court jester in hip-hop better get ready for a coronation ceremony.

Yeezy and Hova just released an [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Otis Redding[/lastfm] tribute song called “Otis” off Watch The Throne and the song is nothing short of amazing.

Sampling Otis Redding’s iconic song “Try A Little Tenderness,” “Otis” is upbeat, funky, dance-driven and just a silky-smooth hip-hop joint full of sophistication.

We’ll leave our closing arguments to the wise words of Kanye West:

Jay is chillin/’Ye is chillin’/what more can I say
