50 Cent Signing Is Hip-hop's Biggest Moment

50 CENT becoming part of EMINEM and DR. DRE's rap empire has topped a new list of Hip-Hop's 100 Biggest Moments. America's XXL magazine lists the G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath dream team as "the final piece of the puzzle" that turned 50 into the world's leading rap star. That moment beat Jay-Z's show-stopping performance at the Hot 97 Summer Jam in 2001, when he was joined onstage at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York by Michael Jackson. Also part of the XXL top 10 is the December 1999 shooting incident at Club New York that landed Diddy protege Jamal 'Shyne' Barrow behind bars; the break-up of Jay-Z and Damon Dash's Roc-A-Fella label in 2004; and Nas and Jay-Z ending their war of words with a performance at New Jersey's Continental Airlines Arena in 2005.
