Kanye West, “Mercy”

If you listen to radio in the U.S. or go out to places where they play hip-hop, the Jamaican voice you’ve heard most frequently this year is probably now-deceased dubplate don, Fuzzy Jones. His Bible-inspired part on Super Beagle’s “Dust A Sound Bwoy” is the soul of Kanye West’s “Mercy,” featuring Pusha, Big Sean and 2 Chainz. Read the story behind the classic record Kanye sampled for one of rap’s biggest hits this year, here.
