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

Sha Money XL on 50’s “Bad News”:
“Bad News” was the first track ever— an original G-Unit track produced by me. It appeared on this—what was it? Some type of underground hip-hop compilation that this guy Lee Skill—some mixtape type thing. That was the first G-Unit record, and shit, man. It was set off. Banks tore it up. Yayo tore it up. 50 gave ’em a ill introduction. And everybody fell in love with the name G-Unit. That song set it off, set the tone, and then the mixtape followed through with 50’s creativity.

It was off this compilation called The Anti-Backpack Movement. I came to Fif like, “I got this huge opportunity, it’s a few stacks.” He took the stacks and we made the song and I did the beat. We didn’t have no money to pay nobody, so I was doing beats. My shit was hot. He jumped on my shit and that’s what we did.
