If you think 50 Cent was down in Cancun for spring break sizing up sexy ladies for his "Candy Shop," well, you're not too far off. 50 was surrounded by a gaggle of lovelies earlier this month when he performed as part of the MTV-hosted spring break festivities. Besides hitting the stage, the G-Unit honcho gathered up some girls for his latest video, "Just a Lil Bit."
In 50's new Benny Boom-directed video, the brawny Queens native is the leader of an all-female gang making the rounds in Cancun. "Just a Lil Bit" is not slated to air for another few weeks, but 50 had to shoot the clip a little early because he's off in Canada filming his Hollywood debut, now titled "Get Rich or Die Trying" (see "50 Cent's 'Locked And Loaded' To Be Helmed By Oscar-Nominated Director"). While 50 is away, his company continues to churn out records. Two new Tony Yayo singles hit the streets last weekend: One features 50 and is called "Seductive," the other is a Dr. Dre produced ditty labeled "Live by the Gun." However, a rep for the G-Unit says the choice for a first single from Yayo's summer Thoughts of Predicate Felon LP are not etched in stone yet. As if that weren't enough, a G-Unit family record called "The Gang" hit last week.
In other MTV News: 50's latest sold more than 325,000 copies during a week of heavy retail activity, pushing the MC's second LP well beyond the 2.5 million mark.
