It's an unwritten rule in rap music: once an artist blows up, you put your
crew on. After bum rushing the game through relentless mix tape
appearances, 50 Cent went from no label to ten-times platinum, arguably
becoming the most famous (living) rapper on Earth. His G Unit posse
includes himself, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Buck, and they bring a
bit of stylistic diversity to the table while keeping their rhymes
squarely focused on the streets. G Unit's official debut, Beg For
Mercy, dropped in late 2003 and features the hit single "Stunt 101."
