"Disco Inferno" is a song by American rapper 50 Cent. It was released in November 2004 as the lead single from his second album, The Massacre. Although not as big as a global success as "In da Club", the lead single from his first album, "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'", it was still a success in America, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Background[edit]

Released in November 2004, the single debuted at #54 and peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming 50 Cent's fourth solo top-ten song on the chart and sixth overall. "Disco Inferno" was certified Gold by the RIAA. The song was produced by C. Styles & Bang Out. The song was also nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards of 2006, but lost to Kanye West's "Gold Digger". This song is featured in DJ Hero.

Music video[edit]

The music video, which was leaked out on the internet, became controversial for its pornographic content. The video takes place at a strip club and is in black-and-white, and was considered by critics to be softcore pornography (with women kissing and appearing nude at the end of the video clip). Pornstar Daisy Marie appears in the video, and the video is also on 50 Cent's The Massacre Special Edition. Nick Cannon and Young Buck also make an appearance in the video.
