Jay-Z and Kanye West's homage to Otis Redding, fittingly titled "Otis," finally hit the web today after much anticipation. The track, which samples Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness," begins with Redding crooning about squeezing his girl, to which Jay-Z responds, "Sounds so soulful don’t you agree?"

From there, the tenderness ends, and the swagger begins.

"I’m never going to jail," Jay-Z raps, prompting Kanye to take it up a notch with his rhyme, "I made Jesus walk so I'm never going to hell."

The duo's collaborative album, Watch the Throne, will be released in August. If this track is any indicator, we've got a lot to look forward to.
