When 50 Cent's The Massacre was released in early 2005, "Outta Control" was an unassuming deep cut with lyrics full of party rap boilerplate and production laced with manic orchestral funk from Dr. Dre. That summer, a remix surfaced with a slower, spacier beat, different lyrics, and a feature from Mobb Deep, who had recently signed to G-Unit. The remix was such an improvement that it replaced the original in the tracklist of the album's special edition.
