50 Cent's "We Up" Is A Serious Departure

This song is so weird. On one level, going with a house beat matches the marketing angle that 50 is going for with by naming his album with the same title as his headphones - SMS Audio - but on another level, it's just weird as hell. Who exactly is he threatening? Who is actually trying to kill him now? And does he realize tough talk doesn't fit with the song at all?

Not sure what the rest of the song sounds like - Lamar and Kidd Kidd are usually pretty good and 50 is an OG compared to both of them. In this version, 50 literally cuts it off before they enter the picture. 50's flow is better here than ever before and it's definitely worth a listen. He seems to switch up his flow to match a different sound, even if his lyrics are pretty much the same.
