Fifteen years ago, 50 Cent released his debut album ‘Get Rich or Dye Tryin” which would go to become a six-times platinum record in United States. The record consisted of the hit singles, ’21 Questions’, ‘P.I.M.P.’, ‘Wanksta’ and ‘In Da Club’.
When Eminem was interviewed by Genuis, he went on to talk about the single ‘If I Can’t’ and went on to say that the single literally was based on the flipping of a coin. “We couldn’t decide on the first single from Get Rich. It was going to be either “If I Can’t” or “In Da Club.” We were torn, so me, 50, Paul, Chris Lighty, and Jimmy Iovine decided to flip a coin.” Eminem said.
‘If I Can’t’ ended up becoming a minor hit while ‘In Da Club’ became one of the biggest hits he ever released, to the point now that he wants to trademark the songs for future endeavors.
