50 Cent Admits To Wanting “Lean Back” Initially!
Whether its a sly shot of respect or just normal 50 sarcasm, 50 Cent admits to wanting the “Lean Back” song for himself. This could have definately given it an even bigger boost, since at the time G Unit was on top of the music game. When asked about some regretful moments in music, 50 Cent had this to say about songs that he wished that he had!
“When I was in the mixtape circuit, there was a lot going on. I was able to take things that I wish I made myself and do ‘em over. Now it’s not a lot of sh*t out there I would do over. I’m like, Nah, that ain’t even it right there. You know what I’m saying? When Black Rob had “Whoa!,” I wish that was my record. I wish “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,” by Busta Rhymes, was my record. F*ckin’ “Lean Back,” I wish that was mine. You see what I’m saying? And you know me and Fat Joe don’t get along. You know what I’m saying? But to the culture, when you have those moments… And I’m sure they’ll tell you they wish they had “In Da Club” and “P.I.M.P.”" (XXL Mag)
Totally respect 50 for that, although he says that he and Joe are not on the best of times. Just recently 50 Acknowledge Fat Joe for losing over 100lbs. Maybe he is offering an olive branch, time remains to be seen.
