Each Wednesday our friends at Radio.com’s Top 10 bring us a new hot and exciting list.  Come back each week for a brand new Top 10.

Last week we shared 10 Best Tracks Sampled By Jay-Z in preparation for Kanye and Jay-Z’s upcoming collaboration Watch the Throne (3/1 via Def Jam).  Fans have already received a taste of the first single entitled “H.A.M.” Sadly we didn’t find any additions on the new track to include in the second half of our sampling feature for Mr. West.

Good thing there are plenty of great tracks to choose from. The rapper, like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm], is no stranger to the art of sampling. So, without further ado, we present the best songs featuring samples from artists we were shocked that Kanye West even knew existed like; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Aphex Twin[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bon Iver[/lastfm].
