"Get Back" is a song by rapper Ludacris, from his album The Red Light District. It was released as the first single from the album and reached #13 on the Hot 100 in January 2005.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video features Dolla Boy from DTP's Playaz Circle, who makes a brief part of the song in which he and Ludacris both say, "I came I saw I hit 'em right dead in the jaw." The video also features a cameo from Fatlip, a former member of the group The Pharcyde who previously worked with the video's director Spike Jonze.

In popular culture[edit]

  • American rock band Ra mixes the chorus and part of the verse from this song into their song "Skorn" as heard on the live album Raw. The singer Sahaj Ticotin claims that a member of their street team mixed the two songs together and this is where the idea came from.
