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

Erick Sermon on 50’s “Got Me a Bottle” (remake of “Got Me A Model,” by R.L. featuring Erick Sermon):
I didn’t even know that song hit New York. It was a song that didn’t blow up. I thought it was a cool record with me and R.L. But 50 Cent, at that time, to be so—he was hot—so for him to pick that record, it must have been an influence. I just never felt the impact of it being big. Maybe because I was in Atlanta at the time. I didn’t know that record got past California. That’s where it was made at and it had kind of blew up from California.

50 Cent was doing remixes for everything at the time. He was touching whatever was hot. It was cool to hear that he did that song. I had no idea he was remaking it, until Hot 97 was rocking it. I was like, “Wow.” The beat was done by Jermaine Dupri, so it was a pretty cool beat and Jermaine was smokin’ hot at the time, too. 50 Cent was smokin’ hot, so for him to choose a record like that—50’s remixes, you know, it sounded good.
