“Your Life’s on the Line” is a single by rapper 50 Cent. The song contains a diss to rapper Ja Rule and his record label Murder Inc. (now The Inc.). Although it was not released as a single, it still charted and a music video shot was released.

Background

‘Your Life’s on the Line’ appears in his first two studio albums: originally, track 5 on his 2000 unofficially released album Power of the Dollar and, as a bonus track, track 19 on his 2003 commercial debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’. It also appears as a track 7 in his 2002 compilation album Guess Who’s Back? Allmusic stated in the review of Power of the Dollar that the song “conveys street life through hard, violent rhythms”.

Music video

A music video of the song exists, which is the only song in the album which has a music video accompanied with it, despite not being a single. Along with “Rowdy Rowdy”, it is one of the two music videos made before he was shot, which was 2 days before filming the music video for “Thug Love”. The video starts with saying how the video got missing, but then later found, then shows 50 Cent rapping in various areas of New York City, including showing him get arrested and rapping while in the police car. The video features rappers Tony Yayo, Bang ‘Em Smurf & Two Five.
