This is a great representation of how not every track needs every member of the group. With 50 Cent missing for every track but one that doesn’t have the other members on it, the rest of the group do great to show they can step out form behind that shadow.
The production is good with plenty of variation in pace and boldness. There are plenty of beats that provide a great atmosphere without becoming the centre of attention, leaving lots of scope for the artists. Maybe some backings aimed further from underground street music would open up more avenues for the members, but the production selection here is all effective.
The lyricism is good from everyone and shows how cohesive the members can be. Each puts in good verses and energy that really improves this project with its level of entertainment. Some less street themed songs and some more mainstream music may help to raise the profile of the members, but they all do a great job.
Overall, this is an enjoyable listen to remind people that G-Unit is more than just 50’s backup. Each shows they have the skills to be great artists and can work well without the head honcho.
