"Rider Pt. 2" is the title of a song recorded by G-Unit. It was released in April 2008 as the second single from their second album, T·O·S (Terminate on Sight). The song was featured on G-Unit's mixtape, Elephant In The Sand and the beat was originally used in Where Them Hammerz At? by 40 Glocc, and he was also featured on a version of Rider Pt. 2. 50 Cent uses the Auto-Tune effect in the intro and chorus of the song. The track is a diss toward fellow East Coast-rapper Fat Joe. The clean version removes all profanity while the video version removes all language and violence. Almost half of the lyrics were censored.
