"Magic Stick" is a song performed by American hip hop recording artist Lil' Kim, released on April 8, 2003, as the second single from her third studio album La Bella Mafia (2003). The song features fellow American rapper 50 Cent and was produced by Carlos "Fantom of the Beat" Evans. Despite not having a physical release or music video, the song performed well on the charts, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, due to high airplay. The song has sold 2 million copies.
The song samples "It Be's That Way Sometimes" by Joe Simon. The song was originally written for 50 Cent's album Get Rich or Die Tryin', and featured rapper Trina. After Trina sent her verse back to 50 Cent, he decided that she wasn't suited well for the song. 50 Cent then sent the song to Lil' Kim. Lil' Kim failed to send the song back to 50 Cent in time to make the deadline for Get Rich or Die Tryin', so 50 Cent let Kim use it for her album, La Bella Mafia. A sequel to "Magic Stick", titled "Wanna Lick (Magic Stick, Pt. 2)", was recorded by the pair and released on Kim's 2008 mixtape Ms. G.O.A.T..
The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 26, 2003 at #75. It peaked at #2 in its 12th week on the chart, staying there for three weeks, despite not having a corresponding music video. It was kept off the top spot by Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love". A video was scheduled to be shot, but problems between Lil' Kim and 50 Cent caused the shoot to be canceled. It did, however, receive massive radio airplay, peaking at #1 on the airplay chart. It spent a total of 24 weeks on the Hot 100. It became Kim's highest charting single as a lead artist and her second highest overall, behind "Lady Marmalade". It also became 50 Cent's second overall top-ten and top-three single.
