Producer: Dr. Dre

After collaborating with Dr. Dre on a handful of records for their 2001 debut album Devil's Night, Detroit collective D12 went into 2002 with a few more beats by Dre, one of which happened to be "In da Club." However, D12 weren't able to find the right approach for the record and passed on it. Coincidently, 50 Cent had recently signed to Shady/Aftermath, and with his debut album in mind he created an undeniable club anthem that likewise appealed to the streets.
