50 Cent Is the Future is the first official mixtape released by 50 Cent and G-Unit. The mixtape was recorded after his unreleased album Power of the Dollar was recorded and 50 Cent was dropped from the label and blacklisted from the recording industry due to being shot.[1] He then travelled to Canada to record the mixtape. The mixtape mostly revisits material by Mobb Deep and features New Orleans rapper Juvenile's group UTP. After 50 Cent Is the Future, he recorded his 2002 compilation album Guess Who's Back?, which "G-Unit That's What's Up" is included in. The mixtape was named the #7 best mixtape of all time in the XXL Top 10 Mixtapes.[2]
