Music Feed: 50 Cent's Most Famous Beefs

No one can stir up controversy quite like 50 Cent. This has worked to his advantage and disadvantage. One, he always has people talking. Secondly a lot of the talk has turned people off in recent years. Despite the negative tones 50 is often associated with, he is still a huge money maker. Forbes magazine recently crowned the rapper as 2007's hugest money maker with a net worth of $150 million dollars. Obviously 50 is doing something right. In response to my recent R&Beef music feed, I turn my attention to 50 Cent and his most famous beefs. It is hard to imagine an artist 50 has not spoken out against. While I could sit here and type endlessly about his beefs I decided to profile only his most well known ones hence the title; 50 Cent's Most Famous Beefs!

vs. Mya
50 Cent claimed that he slept with Mya. When word got back to Mya, she casually denied the rumors. However, her response got her major kudos. The singer claimed that 50 got her mixed up with Lloyd Banks. It was an insinuation that the hardcore rappers were getting down and dirty!

vs. Fat Joe
I wish I knew the origin of this beef but I don't. It is however one of 50's most famous beefs. The two rappers have traded insults and denounced each other for the last few years.

vs. Ja Rule & Murder Inc.
Apparently 50 was mad that Ja Rule snubbed him at an industry function. It was something that 50 didn't take lightly. It was the beginning of the end for Ja Rule and some say Murder Inc as a whole.

vs. Bow Wow
On his hit single, "Wanksta" 50 lamented about his guns that were the size of "Lil' Bow Wow". It was an insult that Bow Wow didn't take too lightly.

vs. Kanye West
Unlike the other beefs this one was steeped in sheer gimmicks and publicity for both rappers who had projects being released on the same day.

vs. BET's Rocsi
When Rocsi made disparaging remarks about 50's last album, "Curtis" the whole G-Unit denounced the VJ for sleeping around with half of the music industry.

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
