G-Unit – Beg For Mercy review

February 6, 2003, the legacy of 50 Cent and G-Unit was etched into the walls of Hip-Hop history. “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” was the number one album in the world and G-Unit was cemented as one of the future leaders of Hip-Hop. At the time the group could do no wrong, as every mixtape and featured appearance caused an uproar in the streets. It was indeed their time to shine and the group took advantage of it. However, as with many artists, there is a small window of time in which success like this occurs. How long would it be before this window closed and 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo & Young Buck were left on the outside looking in? It appears this time has come on the group’s debut album “Beg For Mercy”.

Young Buck – Straight Outta Cashville review

Young Buck is “Straight Outta Ca$hville” – a place that seems to only pack guns, violence, drugs, money, and oddly-placed “Kill Bill” samples into a space known more for its guitar-wielding country music legends that its gun-toting hip-hop artists.

While the previous Southern-bias has all but been eliminated from hip-hop (see the success of Lil’ Jon, Outkast, etc.), fans of metropolitan East coast hip-hop will be surprised by G-Unit’s Buck, a charismatic, if not cocky and brash, Southern-drawled rapper with a chip on his shoulder and a style comparable to mentor 50 Cent. While no lyrical genius by any standards, Buck’s performances are less punchline (unlike labelmate Lloyd Banks) and more punch with a knack for all the aforementioned evils. Still, his limited range of topics quickly grow thinner than rumors of Elvis still roaming Nashville, with the result being the stale “Ca$hville.”

Young Buck – Straight Outta Cashville review

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

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.

Spider Loc – Rags 2 Riches

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.
