50 Cent says:
Cause I’m ain’t writing anymore, they not making hits
I’m far from perfect, there’s so many lessons I done learned
If money is evil look at all the evil I done heard
Im doing what im supposed to
Im a writer, im a fighter, entrepeneur
Fresh off the sewer, watch me manouver, what’s it to you?
The track I laced it, it’s better than basic
This is my recovery, my comeback in
My life, my life
Makes me wanna run away
But there’s no place to go, no place to go
A lot of confusion, it’s like illusion
Like a movie, got nowhere to go
Nowhere to run and hide, no matter how hard I try
“My Life” is a song by American hip hop recording artist 50 Cent and the second official single of his forthcoming fifth studio album Street King Immortal. The single, which features his mentor and fellow American rapper Eminem and Maroon 5’s lead singer Adam Levine, was produced by American music producer Symbolyc One. The song premiered on American radio station Hot 97, and was made available for digital download on iTunes Store on November 26, 2012.
The track was produced and written by Symbolyc One, 50 Cent, Eminem, Adam Levine and Herb Rooney. Recorded in 2010, it finds the two rappers spitting about the pressures of fame, with Eminem and 50’s past collaborations focusing on menacing wordplay. However on this song they both opened up about their lives like never before. 50 Cent raps about pressures of fame, rifting on his meteoric 2003 rise and former G-Unit artists Game and Young Buck, who he feels took advantage of his creative generosity. While Eminem goes as far as to question even returning to rap to make Recovery.
This song’s a crossroads moment for the non-phonies.
