Whether good or bad, one thing that’s a known fact is controversy sells. Just ask 50 Cent, who made huge waves in the mixtape circuit, circa 1999-2000 after releasing his Power of the Dollar single “How to Rob (An Industry N*gga).”
The song made such an impact that several of Curtis’ targets, including Big Pun, JAY Z and Ghostface Killah ended up responding, in turn making him the talk of New York for the new millennium, and for decades to come.
Now, buzzing Brooklyn artist Rrose Rrome has taken the bold move of remixing 50’s head-turning banger with “How to Rob 2017,” produced by GQ Beats.
Over the course of two minutes, Rrose takes no prisoners, going after 50, Uncle Murda, Maino, Jeezy, DJ Khaled and more. Listen to it below.
