50 Cent created
his initial uproar in the music industry with "How To Rob," an imaginary
tale of 50 relieving the world's most famous rappers of their prized possessions.
Now, an R&B
upstart is taking a similar approach with one of 50's closest associates.
G-Unit's DJ Whoo-Kid
and Kev Samples, a newcomer to the R&B scene, have joined forces to proclaim
The Death of R&B, which ridicules those stars dominating the genre.
The mixtape is
a 12-song disc that parodies and disses singers like Ne-Yo, T-Pain, Ray J and
Jamie Foxx, who has worked with Whoo-Kid in the past on mixtapes.
"I am tired
of all the watered down R&B being released," said Kev Samples in a
statement. "I want to take it back to the days where people actually listened
to the lyrics and could relate to the song instead of waiting for a catchy hook."
T-Pain on "Only Tricks Love a Stripper," a take on the singer's hit
"I'mN Luv (Wit A Stripper)." He also parodies Ray J's "One Wish,"
while remaking songs by Bow Wow and Omarion and Trey Songz.
