50 Cent To Perform New Single 'My Life' On 'The Voice' Next Week. S1 Speaks On Producing The Song Which Features Eminem & Adam Levine


On Monday November 26th, 50 Cent will be debut his new single "My Life" when he performs it live on NBC's The Voice. The song is from his upcoming album Street King Immortal and features Eminem and Adam Levine of Maroon 5.


Symbolyc One (S1), who has been behind the boards on hit records for artists such as Kanye West, Beyonce, Babyface, Erykah Badu, Ghostface Killah and many more produced the record. He recently sat down with iStandard to talk about how he and 50 linked up to create the song.


Check out what he had to say below.


Congrats on the new placement for 50 Cent’s “My Life” with Eminem and Adam Levine. How did the whole thing happen front to back?


Well, Big ups to my mans Dre Mckenzie and Tony G (A&R for G-Unit Records) for making the connect for me. I met Dre back in 2008 at the iStandard/One Stop Shop and kept a solid relationship with him.  I would send him beats every month consistently for a couple years until I heard Fif wanted to buy these 2 beats from me.  Remind you that this was back in Fall of 2010.  I went to NY and made a visit to Dre at the G-Unit office.  Fif was in a meeting in the backroom so Dre took me back to meet him.  When Fif saw me, he immediately gets up and leaves the meeting and tells me “I had an APB out on you. You got some HEAT!!!” So we went into his office and he told me the concept of the “My Life” record and spit his verses for me.  He was like “This is gonna be HUGE”.  So for the next year or so 50 Cent would mention me in all his interviews about me producing on his album.  Through the grapevine I was hearing Eminem hopped on the record then from an Executive at Interscope Records I was told Adam Levine was gonna be on the record.  Fast forward through 3 mixtapes and 1 album later, the song stood the test of time and its about to come out now as a single.  Nobody but God because its very rare that an artist holds on to a beat for 2 ½ years with the face of music changing so fast these days.  Oh I forgot to mention Just Blaze called me out the blue about a year ago.  He was in the studio with Fif and they was trying to see which one of my beats to put Eminem on.  Fif was saying the beat that is now “My Life” but Just Blaze was trying to talk him into using the other beat that Fif wanted from me.  Crazy huh!



Tune in to The Voice on Monday November 26 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC to watch 50 and Adam Levine perform "My Life."

I don't know what yall are tripping for. 50 is the only one out of this trio thats not selling, it can only help him. Adam is good at his craft, so yall didn't like " Heard em Say" with him and Kanye? " Radio" with Gym Class Heroes? His hook would be better than 50's same dry hooks.

@JustFlow "That's the problem with a lot of hip hop artists and fans they paint themselves into a box"?????? Really??? I would say it is the other way around, Rap is so wack right now because every new a-ss rapper goes for a Pop collaboration, Rap is the new (wack) Pop now and judging by the title of the song and by the fact that it will feature Pop boys Adam and Eminem (emo), the song will be Pop 100%, not 99%, 100 PERCENT. I am sure I won't like it.
