FROM MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTORS TO FILMMAKERS



All of these directors started their careers as music video directors. I am incredibly impressed with these director's first attempt as a filmmakers on the big screen. I am sure transforming your genius from roughly 4 minutes to 2 hours is extremely challenging. Much respect to all of them. Ready. Set. Action.

SEAN COMBS VERSUS JERMAINE DUPRI: BAD BOY IS SO SO DEF

I am a fan of both PUFF DADDY and JERMAINE DUPRI. I tried to be as objective and fair as I could and that’s why I didn’t do a BEST MALE RAPPER category. When it comes to THAT category, PUFFY has it on LOCK. You can’t compare anyone to BIGGIE (Bow Wow versus Biggie is laughable). Anyway, this countdown is based only on MUSIC because that is the foundation and where everything was built for BOTH JD and PUFFY. Enjoy!
