Solid As A Rock was featured on Sizzla's Da Real Thing LP back in 2002 and was popular on local and international airwaves.
Solid As A Rock broke through in the US hip-hop market by 2003 and was later sampled by hip-hop artiste Ja Rule in his song called The Crown. Ja Rule had used Sizzla's chorus as a response to 50 Cent whom he was in a lyrical feud with at the time.
Now over a decade since the release of Da Real Thing, 50 Cent has decided to use the same song to stake his claim on the hip-hop crown. He calls his single My Crown.
"Am still... am rich already, ... around you will be meeting your obituary, my whip clean, my watch gleam, nine carrots now that's what I call a pinkie ring, don't even trip, my heart cold, am on the globe I ball hard, I go hard I ghetto right am super hood, am ... on these ... like they know I would," are some of the lines in 50 Cent's song.
During 50 Cent's rapping, Sizzla's voice can be heard in the background singing, 'Solid as a rock they just can't stop me now.' The song ends with Sizzla's voice resonating on the hook singing, 'They found no weapon only a draw of herb' repeatedly.
The STAR made several attempts to get a comment from Sizzla about 50 Cent sampling his song, however, his publicist, Olimatta Taal, said he was unavailable for comment as he was at a Nyabinghi celebrating Haile Selassie's birthday. Haile Selassie was born on July 23, 1892.
"I just sent him the information about the song, he is at Binghi celebrating His Majesty's birthday, so this is quite appropriate, they just can't take his crown," Taal said.
