Gilbere Forte- Pray

Is this Gilbere Forte the love child of Jay-Z and Kanye? Maybe (sry Bey). Is this song the long-lost bonus track to the Watch the Throne album? Probably. And that's probably also why I fucking can't stop listening to it. The sampling of Fiona Apple in this track is perfection and Gilbere Forte has a surprising amount of rhythm for someone who I've never heard of before. The inclusion of the handclaps elevates this from just another rap song to the track you turn up so loud that it blows out your speakers. So enjoy, but don't crank it too loud (I know, it'll be difficult not to).
