It’s an interesting convo where 50 takes us through his entire catalog from Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ to Before I Self Destruct. He explains the space he was in and what kinda plan he had while making each record.
Also, for the first time probably, he talks in detail about ‘Get Up’ and ‘I Get It In’, the 2 ‘failed’ singles originally meant for the album.
“..’I Get It In’ leaked out and I had to have Dre mix it. You know, the record was out and I wanted it to sound as best as possible. But we still weren’t prepared to launch the actual album, so we never actually shot the music video for that. I said, ‘I’ll make something better,’ and I went back in the studio and I created ‘Baby by Me’ and ‘Do You Think About Me,’ which was written before all of that. And ‘Hold Me Down’ was one of my favorite joints on an actual album. So this one, I’m proud of this record. I hope everyone gets it and enjoys it, however they get it.”
