EP of the Week: G-Unit – "The Beast Is G-Unit"
Thu, 12 Mar 2015 09:07:59
50 Cent is literally on a creative hot streak to rival his greatest trifecta knockout punch with Get Rich or Die Tryin', G-Unit's Beg for Mercy, and The Massacre. It started with the phenomenal Animal Ambition, went into G-Unit's brilliant The Beauty of Independence, and now it culminates with The Beast Is G-Unit. Make no mistake about it. This is some of the crew's best rapping yet. "Ballin'" feels like a club smash with the right mix of bombast and bravado, while "Doper Than My Last One" remains one of their catchiest anthems yet. Where The Beauty of Independence captured a true hood intensity, The Beast Is G-Unit expands the boundaries once more with the hook-y "Bring My Bottles" and the powerful and ponderous "Choose One."
As well as another G-Unit album, The Beast is G-Unit is also laying the groundwork for what promises to be one of 50's biggest yet Street King Immortal. This is the year of 50. The Beast is back and better than ever.
