The 100 Best Opening Lines in Rap History, Part 1: 100 - 51

69. "Coming up I was confused, my mama kissing a girl." - 50 Cent

Song: "Hate It Or Love It" (2005)
Album: The Documentary

Way before he got shot nine times, 50 Cent had a fucked up life. He's detailed his family history in his songs and most of it was pretty ugly: His aunt killed his dog and never said sorry, his uncle was a wino, and his mother Sabrina Jackson was killed when he was only 8.
