The Queens rapper still pushing repetitive nihilism and G-Unit production styles instead of branching out and taking chances with his music.
50 Cent is a noted disciple of self-help guru Robert Greene’s Machiavellian handbook, The 48 Laws of Power. Not only has the muscle-bound hip-hop colossus modeled his career after the cutthroat guide, he’s working with Greene on a street-flavored addendum called The 50th Law. So far, the four dozen over-the-top credos have worked swimmingly for 50: He’s sold more than 20 million albums worldwide since 2003 while pulling in auxiliary profits with Vitamin Water and other less amusing side hustles.
Spider Loc-Gangbangin’ 101
Spider Loc’s reputation precedes him. The Cali native’s gang affiliation, intimidating persona and penchant for beef make him one of G-Unit’s most intriguing figures. The 28-year-old MC was discovered in 2001 after he freestyled for Suge Knight at a local restaurant. Although he never officially signed with Tha Row, Loc worked exclusively with the label and appeared on their 2002 motion picture soundtrack, Dysfunktional Family. The following year,
It’s rare that a victory lap amounts to much more than gratuitous showboating or preening for your adoring crowd. Yet in 2003, with a planned retirement in his sights, Jay Z went hard in the paint instead of gentle into that good night. The Black Album, which was at the time hailed as his final album, effectively obliterated any and all doubts following his indulgent yet successful The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse. Boasting some of the biggest hip-hop producers of its time —The Neptunes, Timbaland, and Kanye West — the record largely eschewed special guests and put the spotlight firmly on the Brooklyn emcee at what could be considered his creative zenith. With ubiquitous singles like “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “99 Problems,” it went triple-platinum in less than two years.
50Cent signed Uncle Murda to G-Unit! Direct from g-unitcity to 50 Cent!: 'Hip-Hop has new generation: J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, B.o.B…Street Murda artists such is:Uncle Murda is under the Dust and Rust now!
Hip-Hop changed, Uncle Murda doesn't. Uncle Murda's TIME is went! I listen his tapes and they are not for new TIMES.
50 Cent! look Lloydbanks' statue is crying AGAIN: More than half decade went without his official album!
Donald Trump is fan of G-Unit music! Donald supported Lloyd Banks, when Banks was making album “Rotten Apple”!
DJ Whoo Kid: 'G-Unit Radio! Whoo Kid!Yo Yayo You get money!'
Tony Yayo: 'I get lot of money with Donald Trump. Donald Trump said something!'
Donald Trump: 'I am here folks, I'm here, this is great group of people.'
Tony Yayo: 'Mr. Trump do you buy my album 'Thoughts Of A Predicate Felon?'
Donald Trump: 'I was first who buy your album!'
Tony Yayo: 'Thank You!I am your friend! Could I ask you question?'
Donald Trump: 'Yeah, ofcourse!'
"In the street, the consensus is that Buck's album is better than Banks's," said 50 Cent, in a 2005 interview with VIBE, about Young Buck and Lloyd Banks' debut albums. Yup, even the G-Unit general knew Young Buck had somehow usurped the Punchline King as the second best in the crew. Few knew what to make of Buck when he first started rolling with G-Unit. He made an appearance on "Blood Hound" off 50 Cent's Get Rich but it wasn't enough to establish him. He did that on the Unit's Beg For Mercy where he was able to step in and play as
5. G-Unit- Beg For Mercy
Beg For Mercy, as its title suggests, was G-Unit's twisting the bayonet. 50 had just overwhelmed the rap game as a solo artist, and he had opened the door for his right- and left-hand men. Given the degree of 50's success (Get Rich Or Die Tryin' had been released nine months prior), the trio could have phoned this one in and had no problem with sales. What resulted was a very well-executed group aesthetic with a gang of classic songs, maybe even a classic album. 50 was rapping with the relaxed composure of someone who knew he had the game in his palm, while Banks and Buck came with the hunger.
The formula for a Beg For Mercy song was to take one of many perfect beats (the whole album was sonically reminiscent of The Chronic: 2001 to me, with a crispness that Dre had perfected just a couple years prior, despite
