5.) This album was incredible. Most would have never thought these ladies would come together after being on a break for three years. But overcoming obstacles is what Destiny Child does. Destiny Child Fulfilled was a classic cd and this is why they round out the list.

Best Beef

So we all know that beef is attractive. Lets take a look at some of the most popular beefs that have taken place in recent years, (These beefs are placed in no order)

*Game Vs. G-unit*

I placed this beef as number one due to the mass “Unit” lovers. This beef was largely lopsided, Mostly because “The Unit” did not want to jab back at Game. I feel like even if they did, 50g-unit.jpg was the only one in the group that was battle tested. Game would have crushed 5o. I know your thinking, wow, look at game11.jpgJefferey, I am sorry “Ja Rule”. Game is battled tested with beef stemming from, Joe Buddens, Young Gunz, and Yuck Mouth. When it comes to the lyrical beef, this win goes to The Game.








*Jay-z Vs. Nas*


This is arguably the second biggest battle ever to exist. At the time, Jay was the top emcee and Nas was still source_nas.jpg considered at the top of his game. The beef was legendary because these were to Legends taken shots at one another. Also what made the beef historic was the close nature that bothjay-z.jpg artist had with each other. On tour early in their career, allow ammo for both artist. Who won this battle? I think jay-z did, because he got way more personal than Nas.

Somebody Pray for him.

After having some chest pains, Bobby Brown was admitted to a hospital. After a bunch of test, doctors diagnosed him with a mild heart attack. This wouldn’t be that shocking but seeing that he is only 38 years old, this is cause for concern. We all know about the alcohol and drug problems between him and Whitney. I guess now, all those days of fun and games is catching up with him. This is a sad day in the R&B world. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for Bobby Brown. Your thoughts?
