While the influx of new music has remained reasonably consistent, the state of future releases is uncertain — as such, it only makes sense to revisit some of our favourite tracks, seeing as the song panel has been dryer than usual amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As the resident HNHH Shady Records fan, it seems fitting to highlight an important anthem from an interesting time in the label’s development.

In 2006, Eminem released his first compilation tape The Re-Up, a collection of songs highlighting new signees Cashis, Stat Quo, and Bobby Creekwater. Yet for the project’s lead single, Em brought out a few heavy hitters in 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks, the latter having recently collaborated with Slim on “Till The End” and “Warrior Part 2.” Together with Cashis, the collective united for “You Don’t Know,” an anthem that has since amassed over three-hundred-and-fifty million YouTube views since being uploaded in 2009.

Over typically Eminem-esque production, which is to say eerie synthesizers arranged in a minor key, the Shady gang makes it abundantly clear that their word is law, an attitude reflective of their involvement in several heated feuds. Many still view this era as Em’s “gangster phase,” largely due to his lyricism becoming infused with more brash bravado than usual. Even so, all parties spit hard verses for the occasion, a stark reminder of how vastly different a first single was back then, compared to today. Do you remember this one? And if so, how do you feel about Shady Records in the grand scheme of things?

Lyrics

[Intro: Tony Yayo & 50 Cent]
Shady!
Yeah

[Chorus: 50 Cent]
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
We run it, yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
We run it, yeah, you know but you actin’ like you don’t know
You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
I tear the club up fo’ sho’
This flow is gon’ bring mo’ dough
Yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know

[Verse 1: 50 Cent]
Now, homie, I say I run it, run it ’cause I’m in control
Hpnotiq, Hennessy, a couple shots of Patrón
I have you feelin’ a’ight, I get you high as a kite
Party poppin’, shawty says she comin’ with me tonight
I ain’t shoulder leanin’, I ain’t snappin’ and poppin’
Either I’m bobbin’ my head or I’m just standin’ there watchin’
I’m a hustler, I hustle; you can tell that I’m paid
And I protect what I got, I’m in the house with my blade
Nigga, you front, you gon’ get it, okay, now maybe I’ve said it
‘Cause I want you to tridip, yeah, I be on that shidit
You should see when I’m stuntin’, I flash the stones to be wantin’
Push the whip, see me rollin’, you can tell that I’m holdin’
I’m just doin’ my thang, you know the Unit’s the gang
I got my grimy Shady with me, you front, you’ll have to get me
Off yo’ ass, I pay the lawsuit and laugh
Haha! It’s not a big deal, it’s nothin’ but some cash
Let’s go!

[Chorus: 50 Cent]
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
I tear the club up fo’ sho’
This flow is gon’ bring mo’ dough
Yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
I tear the club up fo’ sho’
This flow is gon’ bring mo’ dough
Yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know

[Verse 2: Eminem]
When me and Fif’ got together to do this music
The more we became enveloped
We just developed a fellowship through it
It’s no pretend shit, it’s friendship, mi nemesis es su nemesis
Same for him, it’s just media, see to them it’s just images
But this shit is no gimmicks, this is blood in and blood out
When it’s beef you just gotta know when to butt in and butt out
If there’s a problem we solve it, if we don’t resolve it
It usually just evolves into one big brawl
And we all get involved in it
And we should all get a merit, this much beef we inherit
And wear it like a badge with honor, pass it around and share it
And let it go to whoever’s holdin’
The most current beef on their shoulders
And their soldiers got their backs ’til it’s over
But tonight we ain’t come in here to beef with nobody
We came to party: Banks, Ca$his, and Mr. Ferrari
So it’s Shady, Aftermizath, back in that ass, you izzask?
Come izzon, what kinda fizzuckin’ quizzestion is that?

[Chorus: 50 Cent & Eminem]
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
I tear the club up fo’ sho’
This flow is gon’ bring mo‘ dough
Yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know
Who run it? I said, you know but you actin’ like you don’t know
I tear the club up fo’ sho’
This flow is gon’ bring mo’ dough
Yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know

[Verse 3: Ca$his]
Pistol play, ricochet, see where the victim lay
Slumped over bleedin’; J.F.K
HK ’til your chest plate cave
I’ma ride to the death, do you rep that way?
Forever I’ma be a Shady 7-4 gangsta
Pussy, I’ll survive everything you got in that chamber
I thrive off of danger, jumpin’ in all beef
You keep talkin’ shit, now the squad have called me

[Verse 4: Lloyd Banks]
Enough holdin’ back the steam, Em let off a magazine
Dappadon Cappa Queens, mixed in with Ca$his creams
Started off with half a dream, developed into what you see
Tellin’ ain’t my cup of tea, can’t tell I’m a fuckin’ G?
I’m on automatic when I’m at it, start static
And you splattered, shit shattered, I’m a walkin’ bitch magnet
Spit it how I live it, live it all-way to the limit
And I’m always on my pivot for my digits, you dig it?
See…

[Chorus: 50 Cent]
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
We run it, yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know
Who run it? You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
We run it, yeah, you know but you actin’ like you don’t know
You know, you actin’ like you don’t know
I tear the club up fo’ sho’
This flow is gon’ bring mo’ dough
Yeah, you know, but you actin’ like you don’t know

[Outro: Tony Yayo]
You know who this is
Shady, G-Unit, Aftermath
Lloyd Banks, Ca$his, Marshall Mathers, Ferrari F-50
It’s a movement, you can’t stop it
Talk of New York, Tony Yayo
