Artists Speak On Their Songs Remade for 50 Cent Is The Future

Prodigy on 50′s Multiple Mobb Deep Remakes (“Bump Dat,” “Crawlin’,” “Eye for a Eye (Your Beef Is Mines),” and “Losin’ Weight,” by Cam’ron featuring Prodigy):
That was the shit right there. That’s when niggas knew he was gon’ blow. We was ahead of the game with that. When that mixtape came out, me and Hav reached out to 50, and we started working together. We did a song called “Bump That,” and we put it on the Murda Muzik the movie soundtrack, and it’s also playing in the movie. And, we did another song called “Pop Those Thangs,” and he was all around that time when he dropped those mixtapes. We already knew that he was about to pop, so right after we did those songs together then he signed to Aftermath. Then he did the G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath shit and then he blew up crazy. And then after he blew up, he pulled us back; he was like, “Come on.” And pulled us in with him. “Bump Dat.” That’s the song that we did with him. When he did it on the mixtape. They just took our verses off and used 50’s verse. Yeah, I mean all of that was like calculated, that’s the song we actually did with him. That’s dope, man, that he liked our music and respect our music like that, and he’s willing to work with niggas. I’m sure he felt the same way. It’s just love. We all from Queens. We got friends in common in the streets. So, it was just meant to be.

    50 has never been the best rapper ever but he will always be the realest and best hustler ever in hip hop if you disagree go and check his track record
