[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's the results from round four! For the latest edition of WSIB we gave you two items to vote for: Wu-Tang Clan vs. Slim Thug and MC Lyte vs. Diamond D. Who came out on top?

In our first battle it was a tie very early on, but in the late voting one song pulled away to take a two thirds majority, so our winner ends up with 67% of the vote. I don't think this takes anything away from either song though - I'd happily drive around with the volume on full blast to either one any day. Johnson's song is just that good!

* Wu-Tang Clan vs. Slim Thug: J.J. Johnson's "Parade Strut"

WINNER! Wu-Tang Clan's "Uzi (Pinky Ring)"

In our second vote I thought the two competitors might be relatively even, but giving the winner credit where he's due, he flipped it with a flute loop that made it extra head nodding by comparison. So with 83% of the vote here's your winner of the second battle this week.

* MC Lyte vs. Diamond D: Three Dog Night's "I Can Hear You Calling"

WINNER! Diamond D's "Best Kept Secret"
