Hollywoodnews.com: Hip-hop fans have been chomping at the bit for a listen of the upcoming album from Jay-Z and Kanye West, which is scheduled to drop on Aug. 1.

Welcome to “Otis,” the first track off the superstar collaboration.

The track, which premiered on New York radio station Hot 97 FM courtesy of DJ Funk Master Flex, features heavy samples from the great Otis Redding before the rap icons blend in with his backing vocal.
