    Beg for mercy= absolute classic.

    I've been bumping their second album for some months now, it's not as good but still got some tracks that grew on me over time.

    I feel like 50 was very generous in his career he gave away so many good songs for mixtapes that could've been carried over to his albums same with a lot of his hooks he gave to gunit and all of them. Maybe a hot take but I believe his albums suffered and lacked because of it after GRODT. Seems like he kept giving out bangers and could be classics and every time his album came out it was very generic and followed the same formula as the last and lacked real character.

    Yeah my point exactly his mixtapes had songs that deserved to be on an album more than a lot of songs that actually made it and I don't understand why
    I was listening to his 2011 freestyle 13 out of 13 tracks and man those songs are crazy good yet they never made an album and they're hidden on YouTube not even on streaming lol I feel like a lot of his best work is hidden and most don't know about it

    My favorite group, I even liked Yayo's album, but Game damaged them a lot, and kicking Buck was their end, he was the only one still focussed on rap.

    I mean they had beef back then, but yeah I agree. He murked his verses on BFM. I always feel like something's missing on the second one.

    Yeah, just saying that the album was pretty weak without him. And then 50 brought him back for the EPs and ruined them putting Wayne's leftovers on them.

    Every album he released could have been a classic - Agreed. He coulda had like 4 classic albums easily. Always said that his mixtapes are better than his LP’s.

    G Unit was great back in the day but the fall off from all of them was horrific to watch.

    1st album was near classic
    2nd album was near trash

    Yayo was awful. Banks was great but remained almost boringly consistent. Buck was great, shame it ended the way it did. Game was equally the best thing and the worst thing to happen to G Unit.

    So yeah, a mess really.
