G-Unit – The Beast is G-Unit Review

This is an enjoyable effort and should be seen as the other half of thier album when put together with thier previous EP “The Beauty of Independance”. It is still a cohesive listen but is of a more street level, much like thier debut album.

The production is great and comes across as very polished while being energetic and somewhat menacing in places. The sounds used combined with the nature of the songs help to make a set of songs that show each of the members showcasing thier rap style and how well they can rap over production of this quality.

The lyricism is great by some members but not so by others. However they all have powerful delivery and this helps make up for any lyrical shortcomings that may be found on this EP. It is possible that some more lyrical devices would improve this project but not by much as it is only six songs that all combine together well without too much lyrical input.

There aren’t any features which is good because there are five members of G-Unit and only six track on this EP. Any guests would have taken away valuable time from one of the members which would have made this project much less cohesive to listen to.

Overall, this is a good effort from G-Unit, but these batches of six songs need to be part of a longer project forthe world  ton see that the group can consistently churn out good music and can structure it into a full length release. It also couldn’t hurt to try a feature or two to see if the members can work with others outside the group.
