Still can't get enough of JAY-Z's new album 4:44? Fear not, you are not alone. If a tenth or eleventh listen simply isn't satisfying your itch, then Genius is here to save you. The lyrical gurus have just shared a video detailing every single sample used on the album. Watch it above.

Of course, any celebration of 4:44's production work is really just an ode to No I.D, who acted as sole producer across the album's ten tracks. As the above video shows, I.D. and JAY-Z culled from a huge swath of influences to create the sonic fabric of the record, pulling from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, the Fugees and audio files as disparate as Senate hearings from the McCarthy-era.

Watch the music video for 4:44 cut "The Story of O.J." below.
