Video After The Jump
As we continue to take a look back at 50 Cent's 2003 classic album Get Rich or Die Tryin', the G-Unit head honcho talks to MTV about the album's bonus tracks and how Eminem played a part in them making the album.
That joint—that’s it, that was the start. That’s when you hit the start button. I think of “8 Mile.”
“U Not Like Me”
[With] “U Not Like Me,” I didn’t even care for it to be on Get Rich or Die Tryin’, but Em loved it. That record had previously been on the mixtape, but he was just so into it that he said ‘you gotta put this record on there,’ so I put it on there.
“Life’s on the Line”
“You know when I did ‘Life’s on the Line?’ That was 1999, before I got shot. Em was in love with those records. [People] don’t realize, when I actually did the deal I didn’t say anything about Ja cause I didn’t want Em to feel like it brought a problem, and then he jumped the gun. Cause I looked at Em and he liked it so much, it almost felt like somebody was gonna come out from behind the car like it was 'Punk’d.' I didn’t wanna have him in the middle of my s---, but then Ja said something about Hailie and that was it. [Em] gave me the green light…so I just finished him.”
