New York rapper 50 Cent can’t really take all the credit for turning “get the strap” into a legit viral catchphrase. The hip-hop veteran has saluted “Power” creator Courtney Kemp for birthing the expression.
Fif went to Instagram Tuesday (June 12) and revealed Kemp’s writing for his on-screen character Kanan spawned “get the strap.”
A few days ago, 50 showed fans just how popular his “get the strap” expression had become.

Over the past few weeks, hip-hop artists like Young M.A and Hell Rell have found inspiration from 50 Cent’s now-epic line.
