[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's the results from round five! Following the latest edition of WSIB two more battles have been chosen with incredibly similar beats and completely different outcomes in terms of their mainstream exposure.

I'm going to encourage you to think carefully about your vote though and not just go with the song that made the most noise on MTV or the radio. Familiarity shouldn't be the reason someone gets the win. "Who Sampled It Better?" means exactly that -- not who sold more records but who made the BETTER record. It's not a popularity contest -- it's a precise examination of who took the breaks and broke it better.

* Das EFX vs. Lord Finesse: James Brown's "Blind Man Can See It"

a.) Das EFX - "They Want EFX"

b.) Lord Finesse - "The Funky Technician"

Before we get to our next battle I'd like to thank RapReviews reader @GheeMoney for suggesting this underground hip-hop clash.

* Jedi Mind Tricks vs. Westside Gunn & Conway: Afroditi Manou & Giannis Fertis' "San Me Koitas"

a.) Jedi Mind Tricks - "No Jesus, No Beast"

b.) Westside Gunn & Conway - "Dinner Plate"
