    I think that's actually where the entire sample starts. It has the guitar screech, the open drum break w/ cowbells AND the scream at the end.

    Great catch!

    That isn't all from he sampled from this track, that "Now!" vocal sample at 0:11 on "99 Problems" is also taken from "Get Me Back on Time, #9", at 4:25.

    Wow, talk about layering, I believe this is about that cowbell sound in the background? Impressive find + this means Jay-Z has like 3 layers of drum samples at the same time :)
