"Get Money" was the third and final single released from the Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s debut album, Conspiracy. The original version, which heavily sampled Sylvia Striplin's "You Can't Turn Me Away", was produced by EZ Elpee and Raul "RAZ" Zeballos with verses done by The Notorious B.I.G. and Lil' Kim. The official remix entitled "Gettin' Money (The Get Money Remix)" was produced by DJ Enuff, Lance 'Un' Rivera and The Notorious B.I.G. This version used a different instrumental, sampling Dennis Edwards' 1984 track, "Don't Look Any Further" featuring new verses by Lil' Kim and B.I.G. as well as a verse from Lil' Cease. "Get Money" became the group's biggest hit, peaking at 17 on the Billboard 100 and was certified platinum by the RIAA on July 9, 1996 for sales of over two million copies. It ranked number 3 in Billboard's Top Hot 100 Hits of 1996.
The song was used in the 2002 film 8 Mile and in the 2009 biographical movie of Notorious (with Lil' Kim's verse.) The repeated line "Take Money" in the 2Pac song Hit 'Em Up is a play on "Get Money". The song is a very violent diss track aimed at Biggie Smalls and other members of the Bad Boy record label.
