Flashback Friday: Dwele and 50 Cent

Y’all tired of fussing with strangers on the Internet this week or nah? It’s been a mess around here.

A reminder – these celebrities y’all losing your religion to defend ain’t paying not one of your bills. It ain’t that serious.

So let’s lighten the mood with some throwbacks.


Dwele, Subject (2003)

In the early 2000s, where neo-soul was at its peak, Andwele Gardner rose to prominence as one of R&B’s premiere voices. After making his name teaming up with hip-hop crew Slum Village, he ventured out on his own with Subject, a release that expertly married both worlds of rap and R&B.

50 Cent, Animal Ambition (2014)

A decade ago, 50 was one of hip-hop’s biggest names. But these days, he’s known for basically two things – the love/hate relationship we all have with his Starz series Power and his incessant trolling on social media. But between bouts of infuriating us, he still occasionally drops music and his fifth album was a shockingly solid release. Every track was released as a single and while they’re no “In Da Club”-level hits, it’s a very enjoyable listen overall.
