During a recent interview, 50 Cent opens up about giving his hit single "Magic Stick" to Lil Kim.

While backstage during his tour stop in London, Apple Music caught up with the rapper. He explains, “Get Rich, it was 20 songs. I had no room for ‘Magic Stick,’ which was written for Get Rich or Die Tryin’ but it didn’t make it,” he explained. “I wrote that record to intentionally work with Trina. I sent it to Trina and they f*cked up the record."

“I was like, ‘Yo.’ The lyrics and everything was messed up. Gee Roberson heard the record and came and got it from me. He was like, ‘Yo, I need this for Kim. I need it.'”

He continued, “she had made a good record but it didn’t have the formula that Biggie created for her to have success in our culture. It didn’t have the sexuality. It was like, ‘I’ve been gone for a minute now I’m back….‘ The record with her and Mr. Cheeks… But ‘Magic Stick’ was spot on for her.”

Though Lil Kim and 50 Cent aren't on good terms currently, 50's prediction about the record came true. "Magic Stick" peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 without releasing a video.
