Specifically, they talk about the fact that people “hated on Jesus” so maybe G-Unit shouldn’t take criticism too hard.
Though they ramp up the religious imagery, rapping “This one here is for all the non-believers,” the guys also weigh in on more recent newsmakers like disgraced L.A. Clippers owner, Donald Sterling.
“Donald Sterling think he a slavemaster,” they proclaim. “Turn my Clippers jersey inside out.”
In the past month, G-Unit has dropped “Real Quick,” “Ordinary” and “Nah I’m Talking ‘Bout,” which was the group’s first track in six years, but it isn’t exactly new. The song is a remix of Hit Boy and his HS87 crew’s “Grindin My Whole Life” featuring 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and Kidd Kidd. The Game, who was kicked out of the group in 2005 after tensions with 50 that turned to gunplay, is noticeably absent.
As of late, G-Unit leader 50 Cent has been in the news for more than his music. There was his horrible first pitch at New York’s Citi Field, home to the Mets. Then there are the allegations that he stole another rival rapper’s chain onstage during a recent show. That rapper is now taking action against 50. And his decision to accept Bitcoin for his latest album, Animal Ambition.
“Stay with times,” the rapper wrote in a recent Reddit Q&A. “Technology is what’s changing the business, gotta get with it. I take money no matter if its [sic] coins or dollars.”
