My favorite 50 lyric: "Many men/many, many, many, many men/wish death 'pon me". Because of that "'pon", obviously. It's clear from how the lyric's recited that it was written that way, that the "u" isn't elided through his normal delivery. He elected to use a creaky poetic short-cut more often seen in English poets trying to force a line to scan properly. *He wrote down 'pon.* Why? Has he other such lyrics in the pipe? Will the next G-Unit joint bring us "You can try to hide/but I'll track ya down anon"?
