"Just a Lil Bit" is the third single from 50 Cent's second album, The Massacre. The song is produced by Scott Storch. Released in 2005, the single reached number #3 in the United States, becoming 50 Cent's sixth solo top-ten single, and ninth overall. It also reached #10 in the United Kingdom.[1] The B-side is a live recording of Disco Inferno for AOL Sessions.

Background[edit]

"Just a Lil Bit" debuted at #87 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #3 on the chart. The song was eventually certified Platinum by the RIAA. The official remix features rapper White Dawg. T-Pain used the instrumental to do a freestyle called "A Little Hit."[2] Game also used the instrumental on his song "300 Bars & Runnin'", in which he disses 50 Cent and other members of G-Unit.[3] He also redid "Just a Lil Bit" as a diss to 50 Cent.[4]

Music Video[edit]

The music video is set in the Caribbean and follows a thin plot where 50 Cent, as "El Jefe" ("The Boss"), employs three beautiful women to set up his enemies, played by Emilio Rivera and Hassan Johnson among others. 50 Cent leaves each enemy $50.[5] The video also contains cameos by some G-Unit artists.
