Default Artists That Are Better As a Feature

What are some of the artists who shine on a feature as opposed to releasing a whole album of material? Post examples of course.

First choice: Homeboy Sandman

Future? Really? This is a hard question. I was thinking Mystikal on ELE. It's cheating but Flava Flav and Professor Griff come to mind but I know that's cheating. How about Flea when he did Wild Thing? I think everyone who guested on Tical 2000 did their best work on it. Including Donald Trump ELE also references Trump. It's kind of odd that two 1990's records, both obsessed with an apocalyptic future both mention Trump. Tical doesn't actually reference Trump though. Incredibly, in my view, that actually is Donald Trump.

most of if not all of Wu-Tang tbh. i love RZA, GZA, Inspectah Deck and Ghostface but man are they a billion times better on features.
