Dope or Nope 10/21: The Game Vs. 50 Cent

21 10 2009

New music: 50 Cent’s Crime Wave & The Game’s HeavenThe Game and 50 Cent

Earlier this week 50 Cent stopped by Big Boy’s radio show to discuss beef, Jay-z, and the possibility of recording with The Game. In the video below, he states he wouldn’t work with The Game in the future, check it out:


Though the two once made great Hip Hop material in the past, it seems like they’ll never reconsile their differences. Today, two new tracks hit the net per artist, which brought me to today’s Dope or Nope entry. Inside we got links to 50 Cent’s “Crime Wave” and The Game’s “Heaven”. Out of the two’s careers, who do you think put out better music? Get Rich or Die Tryin or The Documentary? The Massacre or Doctor’s Advocate? L.A.X. or Curtis? Not to mention, they are both dropping their fourth albums before the end of 2009.

mtv-hottest-mcs
Over the past week, MTV would announce an entry in their highly talked about annual Top 10 Hottest MC’s in the Game list. The list began with East Coast veteran Raekwon and followed up with more New York artists, but then stirred up some controversy by placing Gucci Mane and Rick Ross in the middle of the list. The daily countdown ended at number 5, and numbers 4 through 1 was left a surprise for this Sunday’s program for the countdown. As expected, Jay-z was number one.

MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game: #9 – 50 Cent

29 09 2009

MTV’s 9th slot goes to the controversial 50 Cent. Be sure to check out the Top 10 Hottest MC’s in the Game this Sunday on MTV!
Vodpod videos no longer available.


Why He’s Hot: Over the past year, 50 Cent chose not to roam on one of his main predatory terrains, the Billboard charts, by continuing to hold back the release of his long-awaited Before I Self-Destruct LP. Instead, the G-Unit General began to fully realize the potential of another region in which he’d already planted his flag: the Internet.

Dope or Nope 9/9 – New 50 Cent & Ne-Yo

9 09 2009

50 Cent feat. Ne-Yo – Baby By Me (Radio Rip CDQ) (Updated)
50 Cent - Baby By Me
50 Cent comes through with his fourth attempt at a first single off his upcoming Before I Self Destruct album titled “Baby By Me” with Ne-Yo. Based off the tracks title and feature, it’s obvious this is a mainstream single that is aimed at the ladies. The track samples 50’s line from “I Get Money” when he says “Have a baby by me, I be a millionaire…” and of course has Ne-Yo doing the hook.
