Artist: Ginuwine Track: "Pony" Album: The Bachelor Listen

The best hip-hop beat to use a talk pedal came in 1996, with Ginuwine's breakout single. "Pony" was the best track on The Bachelor and illustrated the early genius of Timbaland.

Rising young R&B star: "Hey, Tim, I need a beat." Timbaland: "Cool. Let me just moan into this talk pedal I found at a garage sale."

And...gold!
