Wanksta - 50 Cent


Get Rich Or Die Tryin'
rap Hip-Hop 50 Cent Gangsta Rap wanksta

"Wanksta" is the second single from the 8 Mile soundtrack. Released in 2002, the single, performed by 50 Cent, reached No. 13, becoming 50 Cent's first Top 20 single and his commercial debut single. It was first used on the mixtape No Mercy, No Fear. The song was his first single to chart after signing up with Eminem's & Dr. Dre's labels, Shady/Aftermath, as well as his first single since 1999's Thug Love. Originally appearing on his 2002 mixtape No Mercy, No Fear, it received a lot of airplay, and was eventually added to the 8 Mile soundtrack. It was a bonus track (track 17) on his 2003 commercial debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin' Eminem also made a remix aimed at Ja Rule and tweeked the beat to sound high pitched. The song's lyrics are believed to speak against long time nemesis Ja Rule, but 50 Cent disputed this himself in a MuchMusic interview, stating that the song was not directed against Ja Rule, "But Ja Rule is a wanksta". The instrumental for the song was used for "Crackin", a song by The Psychopathic Rydas. It was also used for "The Real Wanksta" by Black Child, who is signed to The Inc. and was beefing with 50 because he was affiliated with Ja Rule. R&B girl group Blaque recorded an answer song entitled "No Ganksta" in 2003.

Wanksta - 50 Cent

[Intro: 50 Cent]
It s 50 a.k.a Ferrari F-50
Break it down
I got a lot of living to do before I die
And I ain t got tyme to waste
Let s make it

[50 Cent]
You said you a gansta but you neva pop nuttin
We said you a wanksta and you need to stop frontin
You ain t a friend of mine, (yeah)
You ain t no kin of mine, (nah)
What makes you think that I wont run up on you with the nine
We do this all tha tyme, right now we on tha grind
So hurry up and copy and go selling nicks and dimes
Shorty she so fyne, I gotta make her mine
A ass like dat gotta be one of a kind
I crush em everytime, punch em with every line
I m fuckin with they mind
I make em press rewind
They know they can t shine if I m around the rhyme
Been on parole since 94 cause I commit tha crime
I send you my line, I did it three ta nine
If D s ran up in my crib, you know who droppin dimes

[Chorus 2X: 50 Cent]
You said you a gangsta
But you neva pop nuttin
We said you a wanksta
And you need to stop frontin
You go to the dealership
But you neva cop nuttin
You been hustlin a long tyme
And you ain t got nuttin

[Verse 2]
Damn Homie, in high school you was tha man, homie
What tha fuck happened to you?
I got tha sickest vendetta when it come to tha chedda
And if you play wit my paper, you gotta meet my berretta
Now shorty think I ma sweat her, sippin on amoretta
I m livin once than deada, I know I can do betta
She look good but I know she after my chedda
She tryna get in my pockets, homie and I ain t gonna let her
Be easy, stop tha bullshit, you get your whole crew wet
We in tha club doin the same ol two step
Gorilla unit cuz they say we bugged out
Cuz we don t go nowhere without toast we thugged out

[Chorus 2X]

[Verse 3]
Me I m no mobsta, me I m no gangsta
Me I m no hitman, me I m jus me, me
Me I m no wanksta, me I m no acta
But it s me you see on your TV
Cuz I hustle baby, this rap shit is so easy
I m gettin what you get for a brick to talk greasy
By any means, partner, I got to eat on these streets
If you play me close, for sure I m gonna pop my heat
Niggas sayin they goin murd 50, how?
We ridin round with guns the size of Lil Bow Wow
What you know about AK s and AR 15 s?
Equipped with night vision, shell catchers and dem things, huh

[Chorus 2X]
