G-Unit leader 50 Cent has released a new song hours after the passing of Michael Jackson in honor of the iconic singer's memory.
Reportedly titled "Where You Are," the song samples Jackson's original of the same name and features Fif exchanging bars with the late pop star.
"They say I ain't lyrical, they say I ain't a miracle," 50 raps. "I say some hard sh*t, then they say I ain't spiritual/They act like they know God better than me, I know God a lod, I used to pump crack up the street...N*gga you ain't ever gonna see me in the hood, f*ck that sh*t, n*gga I'm too good/Run and go tell 50's boogee, don't buy his CDs, don't go see his movies/Don't act like you used to in juvie, on that medication, that n*gga be looney...Can it be I've been away too long/I've been away man, did you forget me? I'm back baby, I'm back...Oh, I'm in Southside, this is that sh*t right here." ("Where You Are (MJ Tribute)")
