"Balimore Love thing" as written by Norma Jean Toney, Quentin Staples and Curtis James Jackson....
She loves me, she loves me not
Yeah she loves me not

The fiends need me, I ain't around it, bones ache
Detox, rehab, cold sweat, watch 'em shake
I'm not that genie in a bottle, I'm in a bag
Take one hit, I slide off to the land of the H man

When we first met, I thought you'd never doubt me
Now you tryin' leave me, you'll never live without me
Girl, I'm missin' you, come and see me soon
Tie your arm up, put that lighter under that spoon

Now put that needle to ya arm princess, stick it in
Relapse you fat b****, don't ever try that again
All that s*** I did for you, I made you feel good
We have a love thing, you treatin' this like it's just a fling

What we have is more sacred than a vow or a ring
You broke my heart, you dirty b**** I won't forget what you did
If you give birth, I'll already be in love with your kids
Listen, I don't give a damn if your a** start smokin'
But we have a bond and it's not to be broken

We got a love thing where you try to leave me
But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me?
We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
F***in' with me, you can be all you can be

We got a love thing where you try to leave me
But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me?
We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
F***in' with me, you can be all you can be

Baby you know, on the low your sister be eyein' me
I'm good lookin', so you know, sure she be tryin' me
I heard she bisexual, she f*** with that girl
But boy, oh boy, f***in' wit me is a whole 'nother world

After that first night, she fall in love, then chased a feelin'
I hung out with Marvin when he wrote 'Sexual Healing'
Kurt Cobain even good friends, Ozzy Osbourne too
I be with rock stars, see you lucky I'm f***in' with you

I chill with Frankie Lyman and Jimmy Hendrix crew
See this is new to you, but to me this ain't new
I live a lavished life, listen if the mood is right
Me, you, and your sister can do the do tonight

I never steer you wrong, you're hyper I make ya calm
I be the incentive and reason for you to move forward
Let's make a date, promise me you'll come and see me
Even if it means you have to sell ya mama's TV
I love you, love me back, no one said lovin' me'd be easy

We got a love thing where you try to leave me
But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me?
We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
F***in' with me, you can be all you can be

We got a love thing where you try to leave me
But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me?
We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
F***in' with me, you can be all you can be

I love you, I got you barefooted on gla**, chasin' a dove
That monkey on your back, symbolizes my love
Your friends talk bad about me b****, you sit there and listen to 'em
Over and over you hurt me, my love is unconditional

They talk to you when you up, you down they got nothin' to say
But when you call, I'll come runnin', I'll always take the pain away
They set you up, to let you down, they crowned you prom queen
Fiddle about me behind your back, they call you a f***in' fiend

Can we just be alone, so I can kiss and hug you?
Plus me beside you, no other man can loves you like I do
Call me daddy, I'll make you feel good, I mean real good
I found pleasure in pleasin' you, like a real man should

It was written long before, it was carved in a tree
Forever me and you baby we were meant to be
There's more to life than laughter, what brought us together was fate
And we'll be hand in hand, when you walk through those Pearly Gates
And to see to that, I'ma do whatever it takes

We got a love thing where you try to leave me
But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me?
We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
F***in' with me, you can be all you can be

We got a love thing where you try to leave me
But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me?
We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
F***in' with me, you can be all you can be

    Song MeaningThis song portrays the heroin problem in Baltimore, Maryland. In this song, 50 Cent is writing and singing as if he were the actual drug heroin. The song is meant to be listened to as if "heroin" were telling the story. This song also portrays a love relationship with a girl similar to a relationship that someone would have with heroin. He mentions, "If you give birth, I'll already be in love with your kids" meaning that if a heroin addict uses heroin while they are pregnant the baby will be effected too.

    General CommentI don't really like a lot of rap like this, but I love this song.


    "The fiends need me, I ain't around, there bones ache
    Detox, rehab, cold sweats, watch 'em shake
    I'm not that genie in a bottle, I'm in a bag
    Take one hit, and slide off to the land of the H man
    When we first met, I thought you'd never doubt me
    Now you tryna leave me, you'll never live without me
    Girl, I'm missin' you, come and see me soon
    Tie your arm up, put that lighter under that spoon
    Now put that needle to ya arm princess, stick it in
    Relapse you fat bitch, don't ever try that again
    All that shit I did for you, I made you feel good
    We have a love thing, you treatin' this like its just a fling
    What we have is more sacred than a vow or a ring
    You broke my heart, you dirty bitch I won't forget what you did
    If you give birth, I'll already be in love with your kids
    Listen, I don't give a damn if your ass start smokin'
    But we have a bond and its not to be broken"

    This is the drug speaking, to somebody who seems to have not used in a day or two maybe, but saying that it knows she needs it because of the withdrawal she's feeling.








    [Hook x2- 50 cent]
    We got a love thing girl you try to leave me
    But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me
    We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
    Fuckin' with me, you can be all you can be

    [Verse 2- 50 Cent]
    "Baby you know, on the low your sister be eyein' me
    I'm good lookin', so you know, soon she'll be tryin' me
    I heard she bisexual, she fuck with that girl
    But boy, oh boy, fuckin' wit me is a whole 'nother world
    After that first night, she fall in love, then chased a feelin'
    I hung out with Marvin when he wrote "Sexual Healing"
    Kurt Cobain we were good friends, Ozzy Ozbourne too
    I be with rock stars, see you lucky I'm fuckin' with you
    I chill with Frankie Lyeman and Jimmy Hendrix crew
    See this is new to you, but to me this ain't new
    I live a lavished life, listen if the mood is right
    Me, you, and your sister can do the do tonight
    I never steer you wrong, you're hyper I make ya calm
    I be the incentive and reason for you to move forward
    Let's make a date, promise me you'll come and see me
    Even if it means you have to sell ya mama's TV
    I love you, love me back, no one said lovin' me'd be easy"


    Heroin is saying to the addict that her sister has seemeed interested, and has used other drugs, specifically cocaine but using heroin is a whole nother thing. Heroin is then saying, you should feel "cool" so to speak by using it, because so many stars have. It's saying, come use me again, do whatever you have to, sell your mom's tv. I like the line 'no one said lovin' me'd be easy' a lot. With heroin, you do literaly fall in love with it. It becomes your everything.

    [Hook x2- 50 cent]
    We got a love thing girl you try to leave me
    But you need me, can't you see you're addicted to me
    We got a love thing, I can take you higher girl
    Fuckin' with me, you can be all you can be

    [Verse 3- 50 Cent]
    "I love you, I got you barefooted on glass, chasin' a dove
    That monkey on your back, symbolizes my love
    Your friends talk bad about me bitch, you sit there and listen to 'em
    Over and over you hurt me, my love is unconditional
    They talk to you when you up, you down they got nothin' to say
    But when you call, I'll come runnin', I'll always take the pain away
    They set you up, to let you down, they crowned you prom queen
    they know about me behind your back, they call you a fuckin' fink
    Can we just be alone, so I can kiss and hug you
    Push me inside you, no other man can love you like I do"

    Heroin is saying, I'll be here for you when everyone else is calling you names, I'll take the pain away. And I'm pretty sure it's *fiend not fink

    "Call me daddy, I'll make you feel good, I mean real good
    I find pleasure in pleasin' you, like a real man should
    It was written long before us, it was carved in a tree
    Forever me and you baby we were meant to be
    There's more to life than laughter, what brought us together was fate
    And we'll be hand in hand, when you walk through those pearly gates
    And to see to that, I'ma do whatever it takes"

    Definitely my favorite verse. The last 2 lines are really powerful. Heroin is basically saying that you're going to be stuck with me as your addiction forever, and I'll be with you when you die. To make sure that happens, I'll do whatever it takes. Pretty much saying, the only goal for addiction is to kill you.

    Song Meaningi listen to all types of music,and dont particularly dislike any genre...but i do however dislike 50. but i must say i fuckn love this song, just as i love other metaphorical songs e.g. me and my girfriend, golden brown etc. the creativity and the relationship with heroin and the user, he describes it in such a way its mind blowing.. alot of people i know have listened to this song and havnt quite understood it and it pisses me off coz they love 50 and its such an amazing song.

    "If you give birth, I'll already be in love with your kids"
    " hung out with Marvin when he wrote "Sexual Healing"
    Kurt Cobain we were good friends, Ozzy Ozbourne too
    I be with rock stars, see you lucky I'm fuckin' with you
    "Even if it means you have to sell ya mama's TV"

    perfect, enough said

    and to you jerkjess thank you very much, you are 100% spot on...im glad you understood the true meaning of this song

    General Comment50 cent is personifing heroin (I think he used to deal heroin before he became famous), hes talking about how great she feels on heroin but when she betrays him (i.e trys to get off heroin) he gets angry (cold sweats, nausea, you fat bitch dont ever try that again etc) great song, my only 50 cent song, not really a big fan but great song none the less.
