Day 253: "I Know the Future" feat. Mack Maine – The Drought Is Over 2, 2007

Couldn't you listen to this squeaky sample on this Timbaland beat forever? As long as we're talking about Carter III leaks, how sad should be that this beat never made it onto the album? Granted, I think we dodged a bullet on that Mack Maine verse, but, come on, wouldn't it have been great to get Wayne's line "like a circle of knives, I've got the sharpest flow around" on a platinum-selling album?
