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.

The Road to ‘Street King’

50timbo50 Cent is working hard to create long time waited album 'Street King Immortal'. He choose to use his own material. 50 Cent recruited Timbaland from SMS, hit-maker Timbaland will create two beats fror 'SKI' album and will be feature in one song with Justin Timberlake. As we remember this trio did great song 'Ayo technology' in 2007.

 50 also recruited G-Unit in house-producer 'Remo the Hitmaker'. He will create 3 beats for 'SKI'. One beat alredy released, you can listen it in song: 50 Cent-Get low(ft.jeremih, 2Chainz & T.I.)prod. by Remo the Hitmaker. But maybe this song not add to 'Street King Immortal' track-list. You can listen Remo the Hitmaker's beat in Riz Sefmade's song 'Effen Vodka'.

 Swizz Beatz also working on 'SKI' project. He did great beat for T.O.S. album several years ago. He also was guest in 'Get Down' song.
