When Jay-Z gets on your record, people are going to listen. His guest appearances are nothing short of blockbuster events, and until he started speaking patois on contemporary lounge music, Hova was the harbinger of slick power talk, reducing opponents to mere caricatures of the life he embodies and the lessons he imparts. On his recent cameo with The-Dream, he gave some insight into his relationship with his own Queen B, while his verse on Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” remix was akin to Jordan on the Wizards getting schooled by Kobe (shout out to K-Dot for destroying his stanzas). Let’s cue up the 90’s Bulls highlights and flip through the 50 dopest Jay-Z guest appearances of all time. —Max Weinstein
