Artists Speak On Their Songs Remade for 50 Cent Is The Future
Sha Money XL on 50’s “U Should Be Here” (remake of “You Should Be Here,” by Raphael Saadiq):
His knack to know the Raphael Saadiq “You Should Be Here.” That record really stood out; radio started playing it. It upped the awareness on the Raphael single, the original. I had, you know, being in the game, I had to call some people over to get the a capella to it and the instrumentals, so I pasted it together. We created that song. We made [it] where it almost felt like they were together making the song and that was like the first time someone ever did a freestyle to that capacity. Now, it’s known as almost remixes. Now, someone will just take your beat and make it sound so good it feel like a remix. That was like the first sightings of that really happening and going down like that. 50, you gotta give him credit to say that’s what he did. He remixed their songs so good it felt like original remixes and almost better than the original.
