50 Cent and Jeremih are at it again. Taking a trip down memory lane, the hip-hop and R&B duo reconnects on “Still Think I’m Nothing.”
Over Bongo ByTheWay’s piano-laden, bounce-driven production, Jeremih starts off singing the chorus, while 50 reflects on life as a youth in Queens.
“If I ever said fuck you, ni**a, I meant to,” he raps. “When you come up how I came up, life’s not gentle / See that tear in my mama eye, that meant the rent’s due / I prayed on it, God ain’t say nothing back.”
Jeremih’s hook plays on 50’s memories. “They used to tell me that I would be nothin’,” he sings. “Now Lamborghinis and Porsches, we stuntin’.” This is just the latest 50-Jeremih collaboration. It follows their past work together, including “Get Low” and “Down On Me.”
Bongo recently spoke with Rap-Up about the new banger. “I’m excited about it,” he said. “Shout out Hitmaka and Arin Ray, who helped put that joint together. We had that record for a little while. It was one of those joints that had to find the right home. 50 was the right home.”
He went on to praise 50’s execution on the track. “If you listen to his flow, his intent, and his delivery, you feel that Get Rich or Die Tryin’ feel again,” added Bongo. “It feels like hungry 50.”
