You can read Ghostface Killah's entire review of Jay-Z and Kayne's new album here. Otis was one of the first songs I heard of the new release and is still one of my favourites. As a tidbit from the article, here is Ghostface Killah's take on the song:
4. Otis (ft. Otis Redding) – First off they need to not be actin like Otis Redding is a “featured” artist on this shit. Since when do niggas sample a dude n then call that shit a feature. Son aint even been alive for like 40 years b. Otis Redding is my dude tho…so dont get that shit twisted son. That bein said…this shit still goes nahmean. Folks been divided on this joint for a minute…but that aint stop the dozen hasbeen ass niggas who hopped on this shit from strugglin the fuck out on it (Im lookin at you DMX).
