i made the beat (horrible i know, first time making a full beat, was just messing around) and recorded the vocals (the song was 2 tracked) on my samson c03u usb mic on a cheap laptop standing in the middle of a living room and 'mixed' it using beat by dre headphones.. i'm pretty sure the mixing took less time than making the beat and recording it.

i'm just wondering with the sound i got, in your opinions do you think it's possible to get listenable quality vocals from this setup.. i know it's a tricky question but i figured an audio sample would help.
Well, there's a lot to improve on the mix and the beat - but that was not the reason you posted it. Nothing wrong with the vocal recording that couldn't be fixed in the mix, imho, so I would say, stay with the mic for now and work on your mixing skills and improve your beats!
Have to admit, though that I personally don't do much Hip Hop, so maybe someone with more expertise in this may have a different opinion about it.

so you'd say with the right tools it's possible to get good, listenable results from this mic? that's my main issue, i just want something i know that has at least the possibility of people hearing it and their mind not going to the quality.

i don't make beats, so the ones i record on are much better in every aspect. i was just messing around on that particular one. i will however most likely be mixing the vocals. i guess i just want to be assured that i this particular mic is capable of giving a sound that people will listen to.
