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,
The Sonny Digital-produced song received its gold certification on October 21 after reaching 500,000 certified units.
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
11. G-Unit,T*O*S (Terminate On Sight)
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.
Given his famous incarceration, the expectations of Tony Yayo's debut were relatively slim. Not that we weren't checking for Yayo, but we weren't quite pulling for him, "Free Yayo" proto-hashtags aside. So you can't say Predicate Felon flopped, really. It's just that the slick/shit balance that blessed 50 never quite leveled with Yayo's persona—"So Seductive" (a certified banger, to be sure) and "Curious" drove
G-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.)
