"Runaway" from MBDTF

"Family Business" from College Dropout

"Diamonds from Sierra Leone" from Late Registration

"Everything I Am" from Graduation
Too bad he cant freestyle and his beats and raps are canned as beans.

I'm constantly amazed that Jay-z has anything to do with him(which lets be real is his only thread to that world).

sorry Kanye hater here.

Talib Kweli and Mos Def still killin it tho.
