Rise and shine! The G-Unit General says there’s no lying down on the job. 50 Cent just released “Get Up,” the first record from his upcoming Before I Self Destruct LP.
“Trust me, homie, I’m not playing/ I’ll have the dance floor off the chain,” 50 promises on the record. He also gives his word to make “every other week feel like Mardi Gras.”
“You dudes better follow instructions/ I said, ’Get up,’ ” he adds over the pounding bass.
Fif released the track on ThisIs50.com, and it immediately started getting play on New York radio.
“Dre sent over a bunch of beats, and we’re just going through them all, picking out who wants what,” 50 told the mag. “We already finished one joint and just started vocals on another. It’s gonna blow you away, I guarantee.”
While 50 is in the lab recording, he’s also contemplating a major outing. “We was slated to do a 52-date tour, but our schedule got crazy,” G-Unit member Tony Yayo told MTV News. “So I guess on Self Destruct, we should be doing a big tour.”
50’s right-hand man hinted that the G-Unit/Lil Wayne tour talked about several months ago might be resurrected.
“That’d be cool man,” Yayo said. “Lil Wayne is a big artist. I’d love to be on a tour with Lil Wayne. It would be an issue. I actually spoke to Wayne a couple of months ago on the phone, him and Baby. They some cool n—as. I’m happy for the boy [Weezy]. What he did was make people wanna go hard again, because it’s possible you can do them big numbers that first week.”
