Is 50 Cent trying to engage in a baby boom or is he just buttering up the ladies? Listen and make your own choice. The G-Unit general dropped a single — “Baby By Me” — from his long-delayed Before I Self Destruct LP on Wednesday night. Fif’s song premiered on Funk Master Flex’s radio show on Hot 97.
The song starts off with a sample of 50’s voice from “I Get Money”: “Have a baby by me, baby/ Be a millionaire.”
Guest star Ne-Yo then comes in with the chorus: “When I’m in that thang/ I’m so amazed,” he sings. “See what I mean/ Said little mama put me on/ Bet I have ya gone/ I’ll have you amazed/ See what I mean?”
50’s first verse champions his love-making technique.
“I’m a freak, I get into all that/ Girl I’ll perform for ya like a porn star/ Till you had enough and I just want a little bit more/ New music, new mood … New erotic sounds, just listen.”
The Southside Queens native pulls no punches as the record continues.
A firm date for the release of Before I Self Destruct has not been announced yet. On October 3, 50 will host and perform at the “ThisIs50 Festival”
at New York’s Governor’s Island, where Asher Roth and N.E.R.D. performed
on Wednesday night. Besides the G-Unit, Wale, Kid Cudi, Maino, Jim Jones and D-Block are set to perform.
On Thursday (September 10), 50 and author Robert Greene are signing books in New York at a Barnes & Noble bookstore. They’re promoting the new book, “The 50th Law,” which was released on Tuesday.
