Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, Ron Brownz, Polow Da Don and Eminem have been tapped as producers, and 50 says "T.O.S." embodies G-Unit's trademark aggression.
However, the album's first single, "I Like the Way She Do It," appeals to the ladies. "Women influence a lot," 50 Cent says. "They run the dancefloor. If there's a song that I can't stand but a girl runs to the dancefloor, I'm right on it."
Meanwhile, Wu-Tang founder RZA returns for a third time to his Bobby Digital alter ego for the album "Digi Snax," due this week via Koch. The album's first single is "You Can't Stop Me now," featuring Inspectah Deck. "This album is simply fun hip-hop," RZA says. "It's a perfect blend of reality, fiction, sci-fi and martial arts."
Other songs on the set include the socially-driven track "Drama," the sensual "Good Night Kiss," and "Straight Up The Block," produced by David Banner. "I'm gonna continue to build the character with films, comics ... I hate to sound so business-push with it, but I see Bobby Digital as being a potential franchise for hip-hop," RZA says.
