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

Sha Money XL on 50′s “A Little Bit of Everything U.T.P.”:
Juvenile lived on the bus. He would go city-to-city, hood-to-hood. I learned a lot from Juvenile. They pulled up to Queens in the bus. They pulled up to my muthafuckin’ crib, had the bus outside, neighbors trippin’. Whole bunch of niggas jumped off, got in my basement, and recorded that record with 50. I met Buck, and that’s when I was like, “Yo, this nigga is dope.” I stayed in touch with him. That’s how I first met Buck and Juvenile. When we got G-Unit Records, I signed him. But that was the first sightings of Buck and that’s when 50 loved him and Juvenile. They made records, and that’s when we started really getting in the south. The real south. And from New Orleans and all that connected with everybody and it kinda just took us to the south early and Fif already had the southern twang in his voice too, so it really—they fucked with that shit.

They came with the beat, the record, the hook, everything, and Fif loved it. And then we recorded verses between it and connected it with theirs—like they had that shit going. They was already recording, and we jumped on it with ‘em. We made that record from what they had.
