This is a gangsta rap album from start to finish. Listen to any of the tracks(excluding 'wanna get to know you') and youll get the picture. Personally I like Gangsta rap but i don't like this album. it appealed to me when i was about 12 years old(I'm now 15) but after listening to a range of different styles of hip hop from different eras it occured to me that this album carries absolutely no message. Its all jewelery, cars and guns, the life of what many people would call a 'gangsta' but it avoids more mature and realistic areas like the struggle to escape a life of crime, in fact g unit make it sound like robberies and drug dealing lead to success. Its not a completely awful album, Ive heard worse, but its nothing special either. If your a fan of g unit or any of the individual members then go ahead and buy it, i'm sure youll like it, its a lot more hard hitting and raw than some of the units more recent material...BUT, If your looking for strong wordplay, a unique sound or lyrics which deliver a message this isn't for you.
