Rick Ross‘ super collaboration with Dr. Dre and Jay Z on “3 Kings” hasn’t even been out for 24 hours but it has the hip hop community in a frenzy and rightfully so. It’s not everyday that you get three of the biggest acts of all time to come together on one track, especially in hip hop, an industry that can be very self orientated. However, the three emcees share the spotlight on the Jake One production, delivering high quality verses, resulting in a solid collaboration. With no chorus or hook, “3 Kings” is 4 minutes and 30 seconds of straight bars by a trio that will go down as hip hop royalty. Take a look at five memorable lines from the legendary collaboration.
