a lil' shameless self-promotion

Hip Hop's Holy Trinity by Lynne d Johnson

This piece examines the success of 50 Cent within the context of his relationship to Dr. Dre and Eminem. Perhaps, 50's meteoric rise to stardom would not have been as influential had he not been strategically placed within this triad. This relationship is a classic text book case for urban music marketing, similar to how Ashanti was positioned as a hook singer on some serious tracks and then was set forth as the heir apparent of the Murder Inc. family.
