  • Quotes

    • 50 Cent: Those mixtapes are literally two days, Saturday and Sunday, but what happens is it takes a lot longer to accumulate the right music to rap over. So we be finding pieces and then we're using someone else's work so I'm listening to an old record seeing if there's something we missed that we could have did over and bring that new beat back like on Return of the Body Snatchers there was a joint that was an interlude on Mos Def's album The New Danger called "The Panties" "You Need Me" on Return of the Body Snatchers; we actually took that, did that over. He had some other flavor on there "The Boogie Man Song."

    • G-Unit: GGGGG-Unit.
