[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's time for the results of round five! Following the latest edition of WSIB I chose two new breaks for the battles and for the first bracket two classic rap songs battled for top dog status in best use of James Brown.

For the second battle the sample was admittedly more obscure but I wanted to show some love to @GheeMoney for the suggestion, and like all editions of #WSIB reader feedback and tips are encouraged to create the brackets and match-ups that YOU want to see!

Ten Hip-Hop Videos Starring 50 Cent
Posted by Steve Juon at Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 at 12:00AM :: Email this article :: Print this article

[50 Cent courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's probably as much my perception as reality but to me it doesn't feel like people talk as much about Curtis Jackson (50 Cent) as they used to. It may be that he left Shady, Aftermath AND Interscope Records back in February 2014 and so he's no longer able to tap into their extensive resources to garner mainstream publicity. We did review his independently released "Animal Ambition" that year though and the review suggests it was a mediocre entry in his catalogue, so the staff here are still paying attention to 50, but it seems like the public are not. The only times I ever hear about him any more involve him deleting one of his social media accounts or filing for bankruptcy.
