50 Cent Is the Future is the second mixtape released by G-Unit. The mixtape was recorded in 2001 after his unreleased album Power of the Dollar was recorded and 50 Cent was dropped from his label Columbia and blacklisted from the recording industry due to his controversial song Ghetto Qu'ran (Forgive Me).[1] He then traveled to Canada to record the mixtape. The mixtape mostly revisits material by Mobb Deep and features New Orleans rapper Juvenile's group UTP. After 50 Cent Is the Future, he recorded his 2002 compilation album Guess Who's Back?, which "G-Unit That's What's Up" is included in. The mixtape was named the #7 best mixtape of all time in the XXL Top 10 Mixtapes.[2]
