With “Otis”, the first official track from the eagerly-anticipated Watch the Throne, Kanye West and Jay-Z paid homage to Otis Redding and his influential sound. Of course, no truly great celebration would be complete without a detractor, this time coming in the form of the Game’s “Uncle Otis”. Taking shots at HOV and Yeezy, not to mention the LA rapper’s most-recent favorite target of female MC Kreayshawn, this diss track is the sonic equivalent of Game of Thrones. Check out “Uncle Otis” below via Complex.com.
