Where Were You When "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" Dropped?

Heems

"I remember when I was 17, I went to Cancun with a bunch of my friends from school on spring break. But we were in high school. Everyone there was a huge meathead. We were just New York idiots wearing throwback jerseys. But literally—everywhere we went—we couldn’t escape 'In Da Club.' It got to the point where we we’d just be like, 'You ever heard this joint before? What is this? Yo, this shit is dope.' Just playing around. I just remember not being able to escape that song, and being so frustrated by it, but then listening to the record and being like: Oh yeah, 'Many Men,' and all the other joints are cool."
