 DJ Whoo Kid, Steve-O The And Game – G Unit Radio Part 8: (The Fifth Element)

This mixtape was dope. This is the type of shit that help Game build such an incredible buzz before he dropped his debut album. Nowadays, its pretty common, but back in 2004, it wasn’t, at least to my memory.

This mixtape was dope. This is the type of shit that help Game build such an incredible buzz before he dropped his debut album. Nowadays, its pretty common, but back in 2004, it wasn’t, at least to my memory.

I first heard this mixtape on my way to San Diego—a couple of Fridays ago. I was driving on the 405 near the 605, when the mixtape’s intro hit. From the beginning to the end, it made the rest of the drive go by smoothly; just some west coast music and myself.

The Eazy-E assisted “Still Crushing,” which is an error—should be “Still Cruisin’”—stood out. The Red Spyda beat is dope. I didn’t care that the Eazy verse was from “Switches,” however; I did like that Game followed the same format as Eazy’s verse. It’s a depiction of the gang banging lifestyle, and I love it.

Other cool songs featuring Game included his freestyle over Notorious B.I.G.’s “Unbelievable,” “Do U Remember” with 50 Cent and Tony Yayo and “Die Too Soon” with Busta Rhymes and DJ Quik.

The former is interesting because he compares himself to Jay Z, saying the two of them are the best rappers out—he would echo this throughout his career. Also, on the same track, he responds to some critics. I guess people were wondering if something was wrong with Game, his response was a clever, “September, you ain’t gotta wait long to see,” referring to his release date—it would later be pushed back to the January 2005—and how they would have to listen to find out.

Plus, he dissed Bang ‘Em Smurf, who 50 was beefing with at the time, and told him that he’ll grab a .40 cal and show him how to bang a smurf, great wordplay.

I like the intro, “G6 Ad,” where the 50, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck advertised the G-Unit shoe by rapping over “Poppin’ Them Thangs” about the different styles and colors the shoe comes in, a bit of that 21st century marketing.

Game continued his bars of terror with “200 Bars.” This time he used his bars to go at Joe Budden, calling him a faggot, a snitch and a pussy in the process. Game took us through 2004 in this record by mentioning several people and events that occur including MTV’s Da Band—remember them?—the NBA Finals between the Lakers and the Pistons, he name checks Gary Payton; Vida Guerrabless her—and Michael Jackson’s child molestation trial.

Some other distinctive things that were on this mixtape included the inclusion of several songs from Banks’ and Buck’s debut albums, “Playboy,” and “When The Chips Are Down,” and “Bonafide Hustler,” “Prices On My Head,” “I’m A Soldier,” and “Stomp,” respectively.

“Stomp” is dope because before Game jumped on the album’s version, the song had back and forth subliminal disses from T.I. and Ludacris to one another.

Also, for some strange reason, MTV’s resident jackass Steve-O hosted the mixtape.

The mixtape’s outro tells us how it came about. Speaking to Howard Stern, Steve-O said he went to 50’s house and ended up meeting Whoo Kid, who interviewed him for radio, and later for this mixtape. Having Steve-O host is hilarious. He dissed Ja Rule along with Budden.

“Throw That Shit Up” is actually “Dead Bodies” from The Alchemist’s “1st Infantry.” And “Chase U (remix)” is actually “Chase You Outta Here” that appeared on G-Unit Radio Part 4, but with a Game verse rather than a Banks verse. 50’s verse is the same.
