Video: Jay-Z & Kanye West 'Otis'

It sounds like artists have finally gotten wise to the mashup sound.  'Otis' takes a sample of Otis Redding's 'Try A Little Tenderness', and flips it on it's head.  It's an example of brilliant sampling, pieced together with an amazing set of rhymes from Jay-Z and Kanye West.

The video, directed by Spike Jonze, is pretty damn good too.

Mr. Redding would be proud.
