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

Just Blaze on 50′s “The Banks Workout” (remake of “Breathe Easy (Lyrical Exercise)”, by Jay-Z, produced by Just Blaze):
“It was mostly Banks on that, I think 50 did the hook. But for me, that was the first time I ever heard of Lloyd Banks and he definitely killed it. I don’t remember how many bars he spit but he definitely went in on that one. It was a great way to bring Banks out. It was dope that he picked my beat ’cause it’s always cool when somebody spits something worthy over your beat. I’m not really into freestyles too much because most times they’re not better than the original stuff, and in this case it wasn’t a case of it being better or worse than the original song, but he just spit some really dope rhymes. I was into it, for sure.”
