G-Unit Achievements of 2016: Immortal Street King’s crown is without diamonds.

50murda4Queens rhymer 50 Cent has a reason to celebrate this year, following news that his “I’m The Man” record was certified gold by the RIAA(Recording Industry Association of America).

The Sonny Digital-produced song received its gold certification on October 21 after reaching 500,000 certified units.

Ranking G-Unit’s Albums From Worst To Best: Hunger For More 2 Edition

hfm212Lloyd Baks-The Hunger For More 2

The G-Unit flag that waved so mightily in the 2000s was at half-staff by the end of the decade. 50 Cent's musical success and relevance was on a downslope, Young Buck and Game were ceremoniously removed from the picture, and Tony Yayo was, well, Tony Yayo. Which meant Lloyd Banks, G-Unit's silent assassin, was left in a discomforting position. The self-proclaimed Punchline King was reeling from a sophomore slump, as well as being dropped from Interscope. So his decision to title his third release as a sequel to his debut album felt more like a desperation move than a novelty nod to its predecessor.

If The Hunger for More was Banks' crowning solo achievement and Rotten Apple the result of lack of execution, H.F.M.2. was somewhere in between.
