    This is an amazing sample. I was listening to Nina Simone, and then was chilling out enjoying Sinnerman and recognized the sample. I couldn't believe it. Especially then when I heard the part where she's scatting and the way Kanye used that as the intro and how perfect it is... Damn! Great beat and a great sample.
