50 Cent just released the video for his Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy collab “Major Distribution.”
Reminiscent of classic G-Unit tracks, “Major” boasts a buzzing baseline and narrative synths produced by Marvin “Soul Professa” Coady.
On the chorus of the song from his forthcoming album Street King Immortal, 50 uses “Major Distribution” as a metaphor for hustling drugs, rhyming, “I’m trying to move one brick, two bricks, three bricks, four, more.”In his most grabbing lyric, however, he addresses his critics who question his ability to regain chart dominance. “N-ggas said I fell off, oh you heard I fell off, why the f—k would you be repeating that? N-ggas I’m a rap tycoon, I make a hundred mil by June. Now, who the f—k said I can’t rap, Jack?”
The video storyline is straightforward – dimly lit performance scenes, posse shots, gangsta girls wielding gold machine guns or donning painted-on bathing suits, and plenty stacks of cash.
“Major” follows several other Street King Immortal singles, “New Day” with Dr. Dre and Alicia Keys, “My Life” with Adam Levine and Eminem, and “First Date” with Too $hort. February 6 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of 50’s debut, Get Rich Or Die Tryin.
