Video After The Jump


When 50 Cent came into the music industry he was determined to make it and wasn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers along the way. His 1999 hit record "How to Rob" set the tone for the rest of the Southside Jamaica, Queens, New York emcee's career.


In the song he went after literally every hot name in the business, describing the ways he would relieve them of their cash and jewels.



D-Dot a.k.a. The Madd Rapper talked to Vlad TV about writing the chorus and performing on the song. He also speaks on artists like Big Pun, Missy Elliot, Jay Z, RZA and more who were angry their names were mentioned.



D-Dot revealed that 50 initially had a line about Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola in the song, but was forced to remove it because Mariah threatened to block it's release.

Then again it was Fif and he had a reputation (as Booboo anyways). And it honestly didnt matter cause people still got mad.

i never liked the "This Aint serious" line. I dont think it was necessary to put that line in because it seemed pretty obvious it wasnt serious. Having the Madd Rapper in the hook should have been enough.
