HHV Valentine’s Day 2011: 50 Cent ft. Ne-Yo – “Baby by Me (remix)”
50 Cent showed his romantic side in Baby By Me video
Through his career, 50 Cent has made himself known for his hardcore records. Beef is common with most rappers, but 50 is almost exclusively known for beef. When he was introduced to the mainstream, he had problems with Ja Rule. Later, this spilled over into issues with Fat Joe and Jadakiss, before he and his own group member, Game, had problems.
50 Cent is seemingly always baiting Jay-Z and he even took a jab at Dr. Dre, in 2009. This was a part of his album, Before I Self Destruct, his most-recent release, to-date. On this album, 50 had two themes, one was hardcore, and the other was his softer side. Actually, 50 Cent explained this, plus the title, as what an artist goes through, when dealing with fame.
Before the album, 50 Cent recorded a mixtape, which included a song called “Baby By Me.” The song originally featured Jovan Dais, but when 50 decided to use the song for his album, he put Ne-Yo on it. It became the lead single for BISD, and Kelly Rowland played his love interest. In the music video, Kelly had 50 settling down and raising a family. He was so in love, but it was all a dream.
