Rap songs that aren't on YouTube but really should be # 16

Last time I checked I was a stan for Jeezy's pre-fame equivalent of Gucci Mane's Muscles N My Hand where he zinged real hip hopper's hoopties over the top of a synthetic-substitution of Pumpkin's drums from Spoonie Gee's Love Rap. What a pity no one else seems to be given the song's conspicuous absence from YouTube.

Young Jeezy ft. Mykel - That's What's Up
(From Come Shop With Me double album; 2003)

Mykel's hook on That's What's Up was so impeccable, Mac Dre may have liberally nicked it a year later. Is it within the realms of possibility that Dre could have heard an early Jeezy deep cut or is it simply a case of great minds tap into the same ripple of cosmic unconsciousness? "I guess we got the same dreams or is it the same nightmares" 4 real?
