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

Raekwon on “G-Unit That’s What’s Up” (remake of “Y’all Been Warned,” by Wu-Tang Clan):
He came in and did a great job on what he was tryna accomplish. He was definitely a gritty, street, New York cat, and I think he had the proper cadence and the proper delivery on what he was bringing to the table.

Just to see where he came from, within a 10-year period of time, you gotta take your Yankee hat off for that and salute him.

Anybody in the world will tell you that Wu-Tang, we kind of pioneered the whole thought of bringing your whole team to the table and really putting everybody in proper position, as far as being a greater artist. So for me to see that a lot of people pay homage to that—I read shit, I look at papers, it make me feel good to know that we was a part of that movement that created a whole movement for a lot of dudes in the game. So all I can do is say salute.
