"A Dream," Jay-Z feat. Faith Evans and the Notorious B.I.G.

In the opener to his 2002 album, The Blueprint 2: The Gift & the Curse, Jay dreamed he was talking to the spirit of his late friend Biggie and used Big's unforgettable first verse from "Juicy" and a sung hook from his wife, Faith Evans, to make the vision all the more real.
