50 Cent Has Been Throwing Shots At A Bunch Of People This Month
"Ghetto Qu'ran"Artist: 50 Cent
Release Year: 2000
Song Sampled: "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)"
Sample Release Year: 1973
Sample Effect: Marvin's backing vocal and subtle groove gets augmented by 50's bouncing drums and a more pronounced bass, giving it more drive than the original.
Why The Song Is Dope: Well the song itself is dope on music alone, but the lyrics are what probably led to a couple shootings amongst some of the hip-hop heavyweights in Queens. It's the track that got 50 labeled a snitch, and might have led to him getting shot nine times, as well as contributed to his feud with Ja Rule and Murder Inc. But, you know, the things you gotta do for hip-hop superstardom... —DR
