Give Me That Beat, Foo: Clipse vs Foxy Brown

I guess Pharrell should start charging a million dollars for beats (like that rumored NaS collaboration) if folks are fighting over his "Wamp, Wamp" joint:
"From what I understand, the beat was originally made for Foxy Brown with Slim [already on the hook]," Pusha T said, sitting next to his brother, Malice, in New York's Battery Studio. "Then Foxy's hearing problem kicked in. After that happened, Pharrell and Jay-Z had a conversation — I wasn't there — they basically said she was counted out. We liked the beat. It was passed over."

Pusha said once Foxy's hearing was restored, Def Jam asked to have the beat back. "Jay-Z supposedly came like, 'Oh, she's back. Let's get that beat back.' That's where all the discrepancy came from."

"With us, it ain't no controversy," Malice added. "We followed the same protocol we would with any other beat. We hear it, we like it, we get it from Pharrell. We ain't go behind nobody's back to get this beat.

Give it up, Foxy. That can't possibly be the only good instrumental left on earth.

But, I wonder...who would have done justice to that beat? Clipse or Fox Boogie?
