Chase the Paper

Album: Animal Ambition (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • 50 links up with G-Unit signee Kidd Kidd, Prodigy(best known as one half of Mobb Deep), and The Lox group member Styles P on this braggadocio track. The collaboration with Styles came about when 50 was in the studio with Styles' LOX groupmate Jadakiss and his homies playing his new music. "One joint came on and he just, he went crazy to it," 50 explained. "Styles was like, 'Oh, man, play that again!' And I was like, 'I'mma leave it, you could just get on it.'"
