"Disco Inferno" is a song by American rapper 50 Cent. It was released in December 2004 as the lead single from his second album, The Massacre. Although not as big as a global success as "In da Club", the lead single from his first album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', it was still a success in America, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
