DJ Whoo Kid and 50 Cent – G-Unit Radio Part 14 The Return of the Mixtape Millionaire
This mixtape was okay.
The mixtape’s highlight is “300 Shots.” I don’t think this was a response to Game’s “300 Bars & Runnin’.” It’s more like a posse cut. It features every rapper that was on the G-Unit roster back then except Mase, Spider Loc and Lil’ Fame of M.O.P. Olivia wasn’t included because, if you hadn’t noticed, she is an R&B singer.
Although it’s not really a diss track, 50 Cent seems to send subliminal shots at someone. His verse opens the song and right out the gate, tells someone to stop watching movies and acting tough. Could that be a shot a Game?
Young Buck avoids the subliminals and says names. He says he used to listen to Jadakiss. He brings up a time when he saw Styles P and Sheek Louch out on a promotional run. He told them “what’s up,” and not in a friendly greeting way but in a “y’all-going-to-do-something-or-is-it-all–talk”? According to Buck, they were scared. They didn’t want any of Buck.
Havoc kept it simple. H rapped, “like 50’s beef is mine, mines is his.”
Meanwhile, Lloyd Banks provided another good verse than the others.
50 broke his silence and mentioned Game’s then-movement G-Unot. At a concert, he polled the crowd who they fucked with: G-Unit or G-Unot. The Unit got the louder noise—of course—but the latter did get some cheers. 50 acknowledged them and said go buy Game’s album, and put more money in 50’s pocket. 50 was making money off the dude who was dissing him.
He ended his rant, and went into “Hate It or Love It,” which has some controversy about it but I won’t get into it.
Speaking of Mase, 50 recently brought out Mase at a concert in St. Louis. Afterwards, Whoo Kid strategically drops the first? Mase freestyle over 50’s and Eminem’s “Gatman and Robbin’” off of “The Massacre.“ I never got into Mase and this comeback. I just couldn’t picture Murda Mase after he dropped a very clean record.
“We Run This” and “Be Dead” were cool songs, and M.O.P. rapped over a funky beat on “BrooklynNYG.”
Some notes that I took away from the mixtape were: Godfrey left a funny drop of an impersonation of former action star Arnold Schwarzenegger for the mixtape’s outro. A few songs from Tony Yayo’s debut album were included. “We Don’t Give A Fuck,” “So High,” and “Pimpin’” were on this mixtape.
