Classic: Do You Like the Way

Carlos Santana is the most relevant ancient musician ever. No shots, but his one guitar setting is probably the most distinctive, recognizable sound in music today. Every time you hear that high pitched wah ... yup. That's Santana.

And it's even better when you factor in that your favorite musician has prolly collaboed with him before. Or multiple times if you're a big fan of Shakira, Lauryn Hill, or Nickelback. And in the vain of some of the greatest collaborations ever, I present you with Santana shredding like a Mexican cheese greater over my two favorite soul singers of all time. Even if one only raps her part.

Santana - Do You Like the Way (feat. Lauryn Hill & Cee-Lo)

Ms. Hill is fierce on the mic regardless of the subject or backdrop provided. And Cee-Lo at the top of his lungs is a wonder for the world to be hold. I think I might even like the live version better, though. It has all the grittiness intact that makes the song even more ridiculously soulful and perfect. And just completely by the way ... Lauryn is absolutely sexy in this video.

... put 'em both together and you got yourself a super spork.
