Even before the infamous taped conversation, Young Buck developed a reputation as the most emotional member of G-Unit. But emotion isn’t a bad thing for an artist—just ask Drake. On his sophomore album, Buck The World, the Nashville native tapped into the full spectrum of feelings without ever once wavering from the G-Unit model of gangsta rap. This was the case with

Those of us who were recruited to G-Unit's fanbase via their earliest mixtape grind had to have been wondering what would come of Banks and Yayo. With the eventual recruitment of UTP's Young Buck and Dr. Dre's protege Game,

G-Unit was suddenly a crowded roster. Banks got the first solo release date following 50 Cent's debut.

By 2009, 50 Cent's moment had passed. He had already suffered an embarrassing loss in 2007 to Kanye West when Graduation handily outsold 50's Curtis. But that only told half the story. Kanye didn't just make a better album (50 admitted as much in a recent GQ profile) but made 50's sound feel old and outdated—like a superstar athlete who ruined his knees and just didn't have the same lift anymore. By '09, all the seeds of Kanye's influence began to blossom as rappers like J. Cole and Drake began their ascent, creating a new paradigm in rap that left gangsta rap in the dust. Yet, even hobbled, 50 was still kicking that "aggressive content" as a reminder that street rap would always have a place in hip-hop.

A G-Unit album as film soundtrack—alright, I'll take it. Luckily, this wasn't just a compilation project, but a legit new release with a few legit hits. If it took a $40 million vanity blockbuster to give us "Window Shopper," so be it. This here's a bona fide G-Unit album, and so, of course, it's more gangsta than playboy, more slick than seductive, so much so that

Ranking G-Unit’s Albums From Worst To Best: Curtis Edition

Not nearly as disappointing as the notorious sales contrast with Kanye would suggest, alas, Curtis was the watershed moment when 50 Cent's hype and persona overtook him. "Ayo Technology" may have gotten decent traction as a Timberlake/Timbaland collabo, all the rage in the mid '00s, but this approach nearly muted the grit and bombast that had previously given 50 a pass for otherwise thriving by club beats

Five years after Beg For Mercy, the stars had aligned once more for a G-Unit album. They weren't the untouchable force they were when they debuted, but this go-around was an attempt to punch back at the competition. What resulted was a hard G-Unit album. It may not have been in tune with the time, and hadn't necessarily progressed artistically from its predecessor, but it harkened back to what G-Unit fans liked and wanted: their signature no-bullshit toughness. The rappers, individually, had not wavered in terms of skill. Plus, this time we got to hear some Yayo verses.
