Before Kanye West dropped "The Joy" as part of his G.O.O.D. Friday series, the Pete Rock-produced beat was making the rounds to various artists. Subsequently, Yeezy was the highest bidder for the track, which samples Curtis Mayfield's 1970 soulful ballad "The Makings of You."
Strong Arm Steady previously had the beat before Kanye paid a "high price" for the track. Recently, S.A.S. and Rah Digga released their own versions of "Joy" via the Internet.
So with three songs utilizing the Curtis Mayfield sample, I wanted to ask you this:
Which version of "Joy" do you like better -- Strong Arm Steady, Kanye West or Rah Digga?
