[Hip-Hop] G-Unit – Nah I’m Talking About

Nah I'm Talking About

After a surprise performance at last night’s Hot 97 Summer Jam, the original members of G-Unit (minus Olivia, plus Kidd Kidd) have given us their first new track together in recent history. Despite rumors of beef and a few unpleasant interview remarks, 50 CentLloyd BanksTony Yayo and Young Buck reunite over the Hit-Boy produced HS87 cut “Grinding My Whole Life,” transforming it to “Nah I’m Talking About.” To our surprise, and delight, it absolutely slaps.

Although my dreams of an all-out 50 and G-Unit comeback have been repeatedly shattered over the last ten years, I can’t help but think about how the rap game might have been different had they kept their momentum from 2004 going for just a few more years. It is unlikely that this is the start of their return but hopefully there will be a few more songs where this one came from. In the meantime, enjoy this blast from the past and check out the stream of 50’s upcoming album, Animal Ambitionto help nurse any remaining G-Unit withdrawals.

[Hip-Hop] Lloyd Banks – Gettin By (ft. ScHoolboy Q)

Yesterday, G-Unit’s Lloyd Banks released his latest mixtape, V6: The Gift. Banks is, in my opinion, one of the more underrated rappers out right now. His raspy, recognizable voice teamed with moments of lyrical brilliance make for some great ridin’ music. One of the most notable features on the tape comes from the young, talented and prolific ScHoolboy Q. His gritty lyricism continues to shine proving versatile over all sorts of production. On this cut, the Black Hippy member delivers his own brand of ignorance in signature style. Check out the standout, ScHoolboy-assisted Gettin By below and download the project free here: Lloyd Banks – V6: The Gift

[Rap] Lloyd Banks – Bring it Back feat. Fabolous

It is safe to say that G-Unit has been pretty non-existant on the charts, but that doesnt stop member Lloyd Banks from continuing his musical hustle to reclaim that rap spotlight. With his new release “Bring it Back”, Banks pairs with fellow NY emcee Fabolous to drop lyrical heat over indie producer A6’s beat. This track is definitely geared towards keeping that NYC sound and street appeal with a hypnotic, synth line and “street lullaby”-esque instrumental. Coupled with Loso’s punchline verses (even a Ray Allen joke to shoot fire at those Celtics’ fans) and Banks solid flow verse after verse, this track is classic early Banks’ and definitely some heat. Although there is not an official date for his upcoming mixtape V6:The Gift, expect to hear more bangers from the street emcee.
