G-Unit Go Old School on ‘Come Up': Listen
By Marissa G. Muller
G-Unit are taking it back to the old days once again. After returning with the throwback video for “Nah I’m Talking ‘Bout,” the group is keeping up the old school vibes on their latest release, “Come Up.”
On it, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Kidd Kidd trade verses over a sample of the Gap Band’s 1983 hit single “Outstanding.”
50 opens the track like he’s still hustling on the block with the lines: “I’m that paper-chasing, money-making hustla n**** you know (I get down)/ Big dreams/ Big bags of bread/ Big money you’re f****** with the kid.”
“Come Up” could be from G-Unit’s upcoming mixtape or it could appear on the group’s next album, which they’re allegedly releasing in late November .
Meanwhile, 50 Cent has new solo music on the way. The rapper, who already released the album Animal Ambition in June, plans to release another album on Sept. 16 dubbed Street King Immortal.
