Diggy Simmons is the latest to flow on the Dead Presidents track with his song As I Am. Who rocks the track better between Diggy, J. Cole and Jay-Z?

The answer is clearly Jay-Z, but it’s closer than you might think.  Take a listen:

Diggy Simmons – As I Am


J. Cole – Dead Presidents II (click here for his original version)

Jay-Z – Dead Presidents (original version)

Jay-Z – Dead Presidents (album version)

Lonnie Liston Smith – Garden of Peace (the original–starts at 2:18)
