    Drop a video is a perfect way to describe the fecal matter that comes out of the mouths of these guys. It's just two guy's talking. I don't care how good they are at whatever it is they supposidely are doing, IT'S JUST TWO GUYS TALKING.

    OMG that is so awesome. They did him justice with the sample, very tasteful, and what can you say about JayZ and Kanye, they are both masters of the game. The song is awesome, the video looks great, distinguished, not over the top and cheesy like so many. Great collabo!

    I attended an Otis Redding concert in Bedford-Stuyvestant about a month before he died. Besides "Try A Little Tenderness" my favorites were "Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay" and "Can't Turn You Loose". No comment on Jay-Z or Kanye.

    Otis Redding will long be remembered for his hit making songs. I can *almost understand the Need to put a known hit song as a sampler to promote your Newest song, but using a classic hit like Try a Little Tenderness sounded much better listening to the Eddie Murphy version from Shrek!!

    Not interested in ANYTHING K West does....this won't be anywhere on our radar and my children won't be exposed to anything he does either. No one is "that" good to offset his idiot behavior.

    Both these guys are repulsive and disgusting and the fact that anyone buys this crap or is dumb enough to call it "music" or "art" is glaring testimony to the death of American culture. Mostly, it's too bad that the owners of the copyright for Otis Redding's classic rendition of "Try A Little Tenderness" are desperate enough for cash that they would grant the rights to use the performance, and ditto for the owners of the song itself. This is nothing more than a bastardization in the worst sense of somebody else's music solely for monetary gain.
