50 Cent and John Lee Hooker Mashup

I am a believer that Hip Hop is a direct decendant of Blues music. I firmly believe that if the Bluesmen of days gone by were alive they would be rappers and that if the rappers of today lived in the 40's or 50's they would have been Bluesmen.

One of the common themes of both kinds of music is money. This mashup shows how Blues and Hip Hop intersect.

As Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine.com points out; "Probably makes more sense if you've already watched the 50 video."
