I'm No Peacemaker—That's my Jeweler's Job

From: 50 and co.

To: Re-Up Gang:


Wow, this is quite better than what was probably the most anticipated mixtape in recent memory. Which is saying something, 'cause We Got It 4 Cheap, Vol. 3 is still that piff.

But this brings to mind those early classic G-Unit tapes from the early 2000s, when 50 basically ushered in the modern-day mixtape.

Here, the beats, lyrics, and hooks are all surprisingly good. And the whole thing just has a unified feel that has been lacking in a lot of recent 50-related releases.

I have a feeling that the Re-Up joint is going to grow on me. But for now, G-Unit is winning.
