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

RoadtoAnimalAmbitionG-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.)

50 Cent’s Hardest Diss Lines

50iii

Diss tracks have long been the standard bearer of great rap beefs, regardless of what today’s meme-ified social media culture may say, and there’s no one who’s more prolific at beefing with other rappers than 50 Cent. The G-Unit chief has been involved in some of the most high-profile feuds in hip-hop history, most notably with his Queens rival Ja Rule and former G-Unit soldier The Game.
