"Feelin' It" is the fourth and final single from rapper Jay-Z's debut album Reasonable Doubt. The song features a chorus sung by Mecca and a beat produced by Ski. The song's beat contains a sample from "Pastures" by jazz musician Ahmad Jamal. The track was originally meant to be a Camp Lo song, but producer Ski gave it to Jay at the last minute. He describes the situation in an XXL Magazine article:

The chorus of the song was mocked by rapper 50 Cent in his song "Be a Gentleman", from his 2002 compilation album, Guess Who's Back?, and is a possible diss song against Jay-Z.
