50 Cent's Demo Version For The Game's ‘Higher’ Surfaces Online

50 Cent demo for The Game's 2005 single “Higher” from The Documentary album has surfaced online. In the clip, the Get Rich or Die Tryin‘ OG raps to the Dr. Dre and Mark Batson-produced beat in the same style and using similar lyrics to the final version that wound up on the album 50 Cent has long maintained he wrote around six songs that ended up The Documentary, some full and others only choruses, including “Westside Story,” “Hate It Or Live It” and “How We Do.” The songs were originally intended for his sophomore album The Massacre but Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine requested he give them to Game. “They said, ‘The kid can rap, but he’s not a great songwriter,’” 50 said of Game in a 2015 interview. “When Jimmy called for me to do it I was like, ‘Alright, cool, I’ll fix it,’ and I gave it [to Game]. I only worked with him for about, I think, four days. The “Higher” album cut included lyrics such as “I got the lollipop if you wanna lick/Or you can take a ride on the magic stick,” which 50 mentions in the demo. “Magic Stick,” of course, is also the name of Lil Kim’s 2003 single featuring 50 Cent. It’s a phrase he helped popularize during the 2000s. The resurfaced demo appears to corroborate 50 Cent’s 15-year-old claim he wrote or helped write the majority of hits on Game’s major label debut, something Mr. Los Angeles Confidential continually denies.
