Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Between 50 Cent's fearless bravado, Lloyd Banks's lispy lyrical proclamations, and the Southern drawl of Young Buck, the G-Unit's buzz factor alone have placed them atop the rap game. Their debut, Beg for Mercy, demonstrates how they plan on staying there. Their secret? No throwaway beats, keep the thugs happy. The sheer range and diversity of head-nodding beats--supplied by everyone from Hi-Tek and Dr. Dre to 7th EMP (who shrewdly samples Bach)--makes you forget their rather linear range of subject matter. Yep, the G-Unit is obsessed with violence and guns, but death threats never sounded so good. On "My Buddy," for instance, they cleverly describe in no uncertain terms how they feed this buddy--with bullets--and why they take him on family outings. Gunshot sound effects included. For some balance, the crew tries to disprove any theories that they're all about shootouts: Banks serenades a hottie on "Smile" while R&B crooner Joe drops by on the souled-out "Wanna Get to Know You" to prove that thugs need love too. It all makes for one of 2003's best releases. --Dalton Higgins

4.0 out of 5 stars G G G G G G G G G Unit! January 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
While 50 Cent was burning up the streets with his mixtapes to get a buzz for himself, he also had his crew G Unit, which at that time composed of 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo. "50 Cent Is The Future" and "No Mercy, No Fear" were both mixtape bangers. Although you heard alot of 50 on these mixed tapes, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo showed that they belonged in the rap game. Lloyd Banks especially displayed his skills with all the clever punch lines that he had in each verse. 50 Cent eventually signed with Eminem's Shady Records. Once the mixtape banger "Wanksta" was on the 8 Mile soundtrack, you knew that there would be nothing but good things to come from 50's affiliation with Eminem and Dr. Dre. "In Da Club" was produced by Dr. Dre and fueled the buzz for 50's solo CD "Get Rich Or Die Trying". After one week of being on the shelves 50's solo disc sold over 800,000 units. 50 also was trying to negotiate a deal for G Unit as a group and a label. They would eventually sign to Interscope Records. Tony Yayo would be arrested early in 2003 and he had to do a year in jail. So 50 decided that Young Buck, who was already in G Unit, to take a major role like Lloyd Banks in the group's 1st Interscope Records release.
"Beg For Mercy" is nothing that is groundbreaking. You have heard everything that they have said before. The difference is that most people who followed the G Unit through all the mixtapes know that they usually have a hard street edge to all of their songs, even when they talk about the ladies. On "Beg For Mercy" in certain instances it seems as if their hard edge had been watered down.

2.0 out of 5 stars LLYOD Banks steals the show.. December 8, 2003
By CM
Format:Audio CD
The album is weak every song in it sounds the same.I knew this album couldn't compare to 50's Get Rich or Die Tryin,if you were thinking of getting it hoping it would be as good,don't even waste your time,unless you are a G-Unit fan.It has a couple of nice songs,but it gets played out.If it wasn't for Llyod Banks the album would go in my Hall of Shame Wall.
The theme:MURDER,KILL KILL..
Some nice songs to listen to if you do pick it up:
2. Poppin' Them Thangs
3. My Buddy
5. Stunt 101
7. Groupie Love
Too much publicity not enough rhyming

2.0 out of 5 stars Soft December 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It never fails to amaze me how "hardcore" rappers contradict themselves and speak out of both sides of their neck. How can guys like 50 and crew rap about blowing my brains out if I step to them incorrectly on one track, and then the next track theyre spitting rhymes about making a "special" girl smile. Track 3 says youre a P.I.M.P. and track 7 says youre mystified when you look in her eyes. I dont know any pimps that get caught up when they look in a womans eyes. And some more material would be nice, instead of rapping about 80 ways to kill me. Or rhyming names of guns and such. Anyone can go to KMart and rattle off a bunch of gun manufacturers.
As for the album, 50 is good, Lloyd Banks is a sure shot and Young Buck blows, hes average, boring. Banks' voice is new, his rhymes are tight and the delivery is flawless.
3 to 4 songs hold this album together. Its not a Dre or Shady production and it is obvious. dont get me wrong, the 3 or 4 songs are bangers, the rest are filler and uninspired and outright skippable. I popped only 4 songs onto my iPod. And the music industry is wondering why piracy is prevailing. BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF SPENDING 17 DOLLARS FOR 4 GOOD TRACKS!!!!!!!
G Unit needs to spend some more time in the studio and branch out a bit. Get some more musical influences and get a bit more inspired. Seems they have some potential but my prediction is that Lloyd Banks will be the only star to come out of this line up. Buck is wack and Yayo is locked up. Probably another marketing scam. Hes probably laying low in the Florida Keys while jail time hype spreads.
My advice--- go pick up the new Jay Z Black Album. Lyrically, musically and inspiringly head and shoulders above these clowns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got me anticipatin' Lloyd Banks January 8, 2004
By Boop
Format:Audio CD
I am a straight up fan of 50 Cent but Beg for Mercy has me aniticipating Lloyd Banks solo effort.
This cd is pretty dayum good. Beg for Mercy has hits one right after the other. The cd explodes with Poppin Them Thangs when I first heard it I was like dayummmmmm.
50 shows us that he can't be faded and neither can his crew and that talent comes from that single building off Linden Blvd and Merrick Blvd called the American Towers and also that the North and the South can make things happen with the talent of Young Buck. I know it will be on and poppin' when Yayo gets on the tracks.
Again Beg for Mercy is a good cd, I see others among me don't seem to like it but everyone is entitled to their own opinion....well here's mine....its tight!!
G-Unit makes me want to move back home.......Southside Jamaica Queens nugga ya heard me!!!!
Later!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Gangsta Rap's Version of Limp Bizkit. March 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This Album is truly the worst album of 2000's, I Used to think Lil Jon and 98% percent of the bad rap is horrible, G-Unit and this album is even worse, Poppin Them Thangs is a rip-off of C.R.E.A.M., The Main title is truly bad, and the GGGGG G-Unit catch phrase, maybe the worst catch phrase creation of all time.

and I Can't believe that some people had the nerve to call this truly complete waste of time better than NWA?

This album is a truly total disgrace.

This is not even a Gangsta Rap Album at all, it's pop gangsta rap at it's worse.

This is the single worst album of the decade.

If you want a current gangsta rap album of this decade, go buy Westside Connection's Terrorist Threats, not this disgrace to genre.

Beg For Mercy: NO STARS
