Days after G-Unit's 50 Cent put a new spin onto his "We Up" anthem, the rap star called up collaborator Kendrick Lamar to once again come through and bring life to the track with an eye-catching music video.
Directed by renowned filmmaker Eif Rivera, the visual unexpectedly surfaced online Monday (March 25).
50 Cent hits the West Coast with Kendrick Lamar in the video for his new single "We Up." The hip-hop mogul toasts to the good life while kicking it poolside in a plush pad in the Hollywood Hills surrounded by women. K-Dot stops by to deliver his verse in the Eif Rivera-directed clip. Fif's G-Unit signee Kidd Kidd was previously featured on the song. The new version boasts new bars from 50 in place of his verse. The reworked track will hit iTunes on April 2, while his album Street King Immortal is due later this spring. (Rap-Up)
The revamped record premiered online heading into this past weekend.
50 Cent returns to the scene with a new version of his highly infectious track "We Up". The track originally featured himself, Kendrick Lamar, and Kidd Kidd, gets revamped. The new version is basically the same, however without Kidd Kidd, and a new verse from 50 as he comes through a drops off some new bars. Man, I don't know about you, but this shit right here is too dope not to be played at least twice. Check out the track after the jump and speak your mind. (Stupid Dope)
The original version of "We Up" heated up the Internet around mid-February.
A few weeks ago, 50 Cent posted a preview of the video for "We Up," his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar and G-Unit signee Kidd Kidd. Perhaps because he didn't want the full black-and-white, tuxedo-heavy video to be overshadowed by a certain other clip with those elements that dropped this week, Fiddy today (February 15) premiered the full song, sans video.

Last year, Fif publicly co-signed Lamar's talent and studio album, good kid, m.A.A.d city.
"It's official TDE @Kendricklamar album in stores today I got a copy.i like da Janet joint, swimming pools, this Sh!t hot.," Fif tweeted October 22nd.
"Good kid Bad city @Kendricklamar I got my copy TDE. I love that you have your own style. SmSaudio" (50 Cent's Twitter)
