It’s rare that a victory lap amounts to much more than gratuitous showboating or preening for your adoring crowd. Yet in 2003, with a planned retirement in his sights, Jay Z went hard in the paint instead of gentle into that good night. The Black Album, which was at the time hailed as his final album, effectively obliterated any and all doubts following his indulgent yet successful The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse. Boasting some of the biggest hip-hop producers of its time —The Neptunes, Timbaland, and Kanye West — the record largely eschewed special guests and put the spotlight firmly on the Brooklyn emcee at what could be considered his creative zenith. With ubiquitous singles like “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “99 Problems,” it went triple-platinum in less than two years.

50 Cent is looking back on his storied career with his first-ever greatest hits compilation, Best of 50 Cent.

The 18-track collection includes Get Rich hits like “In Da Club,” “21 Questions,” and “P.I.M.P.,” with appearances from Olivia (“Candy Shop”), Mobb Deep (“Outta Control (Remix)”) Justin Timberlake and Timbaland (“Ayo Technology”), Akon (“I’ll Still Kill”), and Ne-Yo (“Baby By Me”).
Billy Danze of M.O.P. Push ‘Em Back – XXL
Jubilant isn’t a characterization expected when describing Billy Danze, but today, the muscular half of M.O.P. is walking around in flip-flops, happily shaking hands and playing the role of host. Surprisingly upbeat, Danze’s laughing, smoking and drinking during a press day at Eagle’s Nest Studio in Manhattan for his new rap-rock group, Hevi Medal, and their self-titled debut album. Comprised of Billy, Ikkabod, Fox and Mounia Tajou, the group will release their LP at the end of the year on Hevi Medal Music/Geffen. It’s another M.O.P.
The Sonny Digital-produced song received its gold certification on October 21 after reaching 500,000 certified units.

The lesson here: Sometimes it’s best to just forget about Dre.
But back in 2009, that wasn’t an easy task for fellow hip-hop artist 50 Cent, who watched as Dr. Dre raked it in with his Beats by Dre headphones. By the following year, 50 Cent thought, “I can do that,” a decision that has since cost him millions of dollars.
