Identify-that-song-filter: What is the current top-40's rap song with sample of high-pictched male(?) indian singing looping repeatedly in the beat?

It's driving me crazy and my Google-fu is failing me.

Yes, it's Kanye West "Mercy" and the sample is by Super Beagle. It is also driving me crazy but in a bad way!

Oh, oh, I knew I knew that sample! It is from the 1980s dancehall song "Dust a Soundboy" which is a great record in its own right, with a crazy gravelly DJ as well as Super Beagle's wild singing.

Yeah, wow, that's definitely not Indian upon listening. But yep, that's it. Thanks.

Nope, it's English, and he's saying: "It is a weeping, and a moaning, and a gnashing of teeth; it is a weeping, and a moaning, and a gnashing of teeth. When it comes to my sound which is the champion sound... Believe! Believe!"

The first line is from Matthew 13:42.

See also Matthew 8:11-12, Matthew 22:12-13, Matthew 24:51, and Luke 13:27-28.

Matthew 13:42 cited above mentions a wailing and gnashing of teeth, while the other four specifically mention weeping along with the teeth-gnashing. It refers to hell.
