As written by Steve 'Flash' Juon, and voted on by THE PEOPLE who read!

Four competitors lined up to see who sampled "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)" by The Delfonics better. To my surprise T.I. was completely shut out in the poll and received ZERO PERCENT of the votes. Maybe that was just a symptom of how strong the other three competitors were - Missy Elliott, Three 6 Mafia and Tha Alkaholiks (Tha Liks) but even I was surprised when the final vote tally came in.

Make no mistake that "Do It" is a great song and deserves the win, but I expected one of the much more pop/commercial songs like Missy or Three 6 would win merely by virtue of greater exposure to the viewing audience. It's nice to see the more underground and more "hardcore hip-hop" choice pull it out in the voting at the end. Let's give Tha Liks their respect due by featuring the winner one more time.
