well, I don't. Pop That is a trash song over a s***** beat. Matter of fact, pretty much all hip hop hit songs are either hip pop songs or annoying reptitive trap songs nowadays. The game has changed, I really doubt a mixtape with popular used beats would create buzz for 50.
50 even said he doesn't use other ppl's beats anymore cause the beats right now don't inspire him. 50 rapped over a couple of used beats when he did the SMS freestyles last year but those beats/original songs weren't big hit records or anything.
no it's not, it has a more cinematic sound to it. The other 2 songs you mentioned have a more poppy/commercial sound. The only thing pop about New Day is Alicia's hook imo. Baby By Me is a hip pop record for example.
