I've been waiting on this my whole life
These dreams awaken me at night
You say I think I'm never wrong
You know that may make you right
I wonder and I wonder and I wonder and I wonder
Did you know? (Did you know?) Did you know? (Did you know?)
Did you know what it means, what it means?
I'm your dreams come true
I Wonder by THEMPeople (Ft. Michael Anthony & Ms. Jones)

This is Michael’s take on fellow Chicagoan Kanye West’s song “I Wonder” which samples “My Song” by Labi Siffre.

He switches the order however, choosing to sing Kanye’s first verse before the Labi hook.

So one of the things I need y'all to do for me is you gotta know that it's coming. And once you know it's coming, once you know it's coming, stay in the zone. Stay in your body. Increase your maximum level. It's one simple reason The Mechanism by Disclosure (Ft. Friend Within)

The speaker here is Eric Thomas, self-proclaimed hip-hop preacher who Disclosure also sampled for their 2013 album Settle on “Intro” and “When A Fire Starts To Burn”.

ET’s speech in the intro had a similar theme on “the zone”:

How do you build your personal momentum and how do you get in the zone?

4. 104.8 - Joel Zumaya (2006) Fastest Pitchers by MLB

The Detroit Tigers reliever was renowned for his velocity, and proved it in the 2006 ALCS with Hall of Fame first baseman Frank Thomas at the plate — chucking a fastball that nearly hit 105 mph.

Zumaya averaged 98.5 mph from 2007-2010. Due to multiple injuries, he retired in 2014 after not pitching in a game since 2010.

Fun Fact: Zumaya once hurt his wrist from playing too much guitar hero

2. 107.6** - Bob Feller (1946) Fastest Pitchers by MLB

In a weird promotion by Washington Senators owner Clark Griffith in 1946, a borrowed photo-electric cell device (used to measure speed of artillery rounds) measured Bob Feller’s velocity before the game.

His fastest pitch was recorded at 98.6 mph, but this was the speed at the plate. When averaged out to today’s standard 50 feet from the plate, the best estimate stands at 107.6 mph.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMPxpOapRuU

Feller on the experience from Now Pitching, Bob Feller:

Clark Griffith… announced that I would throw some pitches through a special photoelectric measuring device at home plate so my fastball could be clocked in those days before radar guns. He announced the test a week before the Indians came to Washington, and he had a large crowd in his ball park the night of the test. Mr. Griffith came in… He told me it was about time to get out there and start throwing smoke. I told him as soon as he paid me for it. I asked him for $1,000 and settled for $700 before leaving the clubhouse to do it.

For my 700 bucks, I threw several balls through an opening in that photoelectric machine, and 31,000 fans watched almost in silence as they awaited the announcement of the speeds recorded by the machine, which came from Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.
