Young Buck – Straight Outta Cashville review

Young Buckwritten by Brainiac

Getting straight to the point, Young Buck has given us one the most inconsistent solo debut out of all three G-Unit members. His debut album entitled “Straight Outta Cashville” is twenty tracks deep with just one interlude that clearly favors quantity over quality. What could’ve been a far better album if it was reduced to a solid twelve to fourteen, is instead an overall average album in which over 50% ranges from average to just plain awful.

Young Buck Interview

Young Buckwritten by Hugo Lunny

G-Unit is known of the world over, and as soon as Yayo got locked up, the world then heard of Young Buck. G-Unit’s southern frontman has made waves since “Straight Out Of Cashville” came out, late 2003. Being allegedly affiliated with stabbing someone at an award show, and upholding the image he talks about secured Young Buck quite the steady following. Many who criticize G-Unit still seem to respect him.

In November, Buck is set to follow up “Straight Out Of Cashville” with “Buck The World,” followed by launching his own label, Cashville Records. We spoke whilst he was caught in traffic.

Get Rich or Die Trying OST review

GRODT OSTwritten by Plus One

One thing that Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has proven is that he can capitalize on things; his autobiography, video games, clothing and now movie. The funny thing is though, if you’ve seen “Get Rich or Die Trying,” like many have already said, it appears to be a two hour soundtrack promo. The film doesn’t compare to the director’s other work and the film overall is a disappointment.

Lloyd Banks Interview

Lloyd Bankswritten by Hugo Lunny

At 24 and already mutli-millionaire, Lloyd Banks has it made.

Filming music videos and celebrating his birthday at the Playboy Mansion isn’t what could be referred to as typical, and being the #2 in the current highest selling clique in Hip Hop affords Lloyd Banks an audience which few can reach.

After a very profitable and successful 2003, Banks aims to mirror what he achieved back then with his sophomore album, “The Rotten Apple” featuring guest appearances from Rakim, 50 Cent, Scarface, Mobb Deep and more.

Tony Yayo interview

Tony Yayowritten by James Johnson

Despite the fact that 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck kept the world on the up and up about Tony Yayo during his incarceration, not many people really saw him coming when he finally got released. I don’t think anyone really knew what to expect of him.

Since his release, he has taken the hip-hop game into a choke hold, and there’s no plan of letting go anytime soon. Besides his debut album, ‘Thoughts Of A Predicate Felon,’ which debuted at number two on the Billboard charts, he’s been into so much other stuff along with his G-Unit cohorts. More recently, he has taken part in the new video game being offered by 50 Cent, titled ’50 Cent: Bulletproof’. We recently had a moment to talk with Yayo about the game and the part he play in its entire conception. Plus, he went on to discuss his upcoming business ventures.

Spider Loc – Rags 2 Riches

Better Dayzwritten by Chase Doe

If there’s one thing about 50 Cent, it’s he has a good ear for talent. From Lloyd Banks to Young Buck, every artist 50 has signed to his G-Unit imprint has sold no less than gold, but 50’s string of signing quality artists may change with his Spider-Loc.

After The Game was kicked out of G-Unit, Spider Loc was given his shot, and like The Game, Spider Loc “represents” the West Coast, the comparison ends there. 50 may claim that he wrote the hooks for The Game’s biggest songs, but there is no denying The Game’s skills when it comes to 16 bars (Dr. Dre co-signed). The same can not be said for Spider.

8 Mile Soundtrack Review

8 Milewritten by AJ

In the last few weeks, this soundtrack has been the subject of a growing buzz about the possibility that this will be the greatest hip hop soundtrack of all time. 8 Mile was being tossed around with soundtracks like Above the Rim, Belly, Training Day and Boyz N Tha Hood. This hype was undoubtedly created by a leaked tracklist that included Jay-Z, Nas, Xzibit, Rakim, 50 Cent, D-12 and of course Eminem. Can it live up to the hype?

Hot Rod (G-Unit) Interview

Hot Rodwritten by Nicole “Heat” Mosley

Arizona has never really been known for Hip Hop, but G-Unit’s Hot Rod is trying to change that. After being snapped up by 50 Cent, Rod went on a recording frenzy, staying at 50’s mansion and churning out his debut album “Fast Lane” within three weeks. He’s currently doing the rounds with his single “Be Easy” featuring Mary J. Blige and is set to release his debut at the beginning of 2007.

MVRemix: How are you dealing with all the pressure that comes with being an artist on G-Unit?

Hot Rod: Of course it’s going to be pressure. Pressure from me having the whole state (Arizona) on my back. Pressure from being on the west coast and being on G-Unit. It’s a lot of haters out there. A lot of G-Unit hate. I got on with a demo and of course there’s a lot of hate with that. I’m dealing with it. I’m not up thinking of it and crying every night. I’m not waking up in a cold sweat. I’m in a real major situation. I had to really get focused.
