50 Cent’s “I’m the Man” Certified Gold
Congrats are in order for 50 Cent. The Jamaica Queens rapper's 2015 song "I'm The Man" has officially gone Gold, according to the RIAA.
"I'm The Man" moved half a million certified copies. The Sonny Digital-produced record appeared originally on 50's The Kanan Tape, which dropped in December 2015. The seven-track project contains guest features from artists including Young Buck, Boosie BadAzz and Post Malone.
In March 2016, the G-Unit frontman reached out to Chris Brown for the official remix for "I'm The Man." 50 Cent’s kept his original lyrics, while C. Breezy added his spin to the final verse. Brown spits, “Came in the game gettin’ money/I fuck with all the bitches gettin’ money/But you love playing games with all the corny shit/Messin’ with a nigga, I only bought it cause I want it/You love to see a nigga on the bottom/You tried to come up, you don’t keep it on the low/You like a drug, don’t like you to call them hoes/I’m trying to break a bitch down like 36 O’s.”
In case you missed it, 50 recently hopped on the instrumental to Young M.A's smash hit "OOOUUU." The Get Rich or Die Tryin' rapper spits, "I let my young niggas drill like power tools/Power on every week, I make power moves/Tuck what? I come through with all kinda jewels/Beat the case come to court with all kinda Jews."
Back in September, 50 and DJ Whoo Kid announced their plans for a new collaboration mixtape. The announcement came a few days after a new G-Unit mixtape called The Lost Flash Drive. Whoo Kid told XXL how the 'tape came about, saying, “Me and Tony Yayo stumbled across a hard drive at the G-Unit offices recently that contained lost music and lost footage from the G-Unit Radio Series ... Getting 50, Banks, Buck and Kidd Kidd on board to release these classics to the world, it’s just something for the fans to embrace.”
