    Kanye West - "Touch the Sky"

    Producer: Just Blaze

    For the fourth single from Kanye West's Late Registration, the rapper/producer handed the reigns over to fellow Roc-A-Fella mainstay Just Blaze who grabbed a joyous sample from Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up" to set the perfect backdrop for Kanye's inspirational verses and indelible chorus. Mayfield's vibrant horns give Kanye and at the time little-known guest Lupe Fiasco a springboard for energetic rhymes, a shining examples of horns at their invigorating best.
