This has been an active anniversary week in Hip Hop. The birthdays and memorials of greats like Kid Capri, Big Pun and Jay Dilla brought many back to what some would call a golden age of Hip Hop. We also had the 10th anniversary of the record breaking album release from 50 cent “Get Rich and Die Trying”. Having sold 12 million copies to date this was a game changer if ever there was one. To mark the moment Curtis Jackson delivers new material he says is directly influenced by this accomplishment.
This was inspired by 10 years anniversary of GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN. I wrote the song so everytime I hear it it reminds me of it. I wrote it the day before yesterday, shot yesterday. It took me longer to find the beat than to actually write it. I didn’t shoot the 3rd verse for you to focus on the lyrics. No GIRLS, no JEWELRY, RAW ENERGY , its just me. Check it out.
