If I Can't by 50 Cent


"'''If I Can't'" is a song by American hip-hop artist 50 Cent, released as the fourth and final single from his debut studio album, Get Rich or Die Tryin''' (2003). The song is one of four on the album to be produced by hip-hop producer Dr. Dre, with co-production from frequent collaborator Mike Elizondo. Musically, the song describes how 50 Cent believes that "if I [he] can't do it, (referring to anything), it can't be done".

Upon its release, the song was a reasonable commercial success: However, the song did not match the commercial success of the album's three previous singles, only peaking at number 76 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, where the three previous singles had all peaked within the top three, and also peaked in the upper regions of several national charts, most successfully in the United Kingdom, peaking at number ten after being released as a double A-side with the G-Unit single "Poppin' Them Thangs".
