Ranking G-Unit’s Albums From Worst To Best: Animal Ambition Edition
G-Unit was a hell of a movement—really, an inferno insomuch as 50 Cent was fiery and devilish, with incendiary, all-consuming hype. Confronted with 50's debut singles "In Da Club" and "Wanksta" in 2003, Jay Z threw up his hands, as Roc-A-Fella took a backseat to the year. Ja Rule and Irv Gotti's Murda Inc. fumbled, stumbled, crashed. The Ruff Ryders disintegrated. Violator floundered.
For a few tumultuous, glorious years, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, and Game were the tallest men standing. (Not that we loved Dipset any less.)
16. 50 Cent-Animal Ambition (2014)
I'll say this much for it: all evidence of a creative deficit here can, and will, be swept under the rug, never to be heard again once G-Unit drops a new full-length project. It's not quite a bad album, just an unnecessary one. Minimal blood, none of the nerve, and the dimest of 50's wit. None of the grit. None of the gusto. A buff, pristine tycoon made this album. Obviously. —Justin Charity
