50 Cent Makes A Power Move Over Young M.A.’s “Ooouuu” (Audio)

Every year in Hip-Hop there is a track that penetrates the Zeitgeist and inspires countless MCs to want to leave their imprint on the record. In 2013, it was Big Sean’s “Control,” fueled in large part by response records to Kendrick Lamar’s lyrical assault on the entire industry. In 2014, Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Ni**a” had legions rapping to Jalil Beats’ thunderclap. This year, two tracks appear to be in the running. Earlier, seemingly everyone wanted to touch Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s red-hot “All The Way Up.” Even Jay-Z blessed the track with one of his most well-received verses in years. Lately, however, the honors belong to Young M.A.’s “Ooouuu.” Over the last 2 weeks, the song became an aural weapon in the ongoing war of words between The Game and Meek Mill, with both men using the beat for diss records. Now, 50 Cent adds his 2 pennies.

From the jump, Fif flexes about his highly-regarded and increasingly popular series, Power, which he executive produces. The finale for season 3 aired on Sunday and, according to 50, it was the highest rated season finale in the Starz network’s history. He opens the song with “I let my young ni**as drill like power tools. Power on every week, I make power moves.” After a quick, but potent 16 bars, he cedes the mic back to Young M.A., and the original version recommences. Though the song has been used in beefs, as of late, notably, 50 Cent and The Game ended their longstanding beef in August.

Though 50 Cent and Young M.A. were recently photographed together at an event, it’s unclear whether this is an original remix or just 50 having some fun on the hot track of the moment.
