G-Unit is an American hip hop group originating from New York City. G-Unit emerged on the New York scene by independently releasing several mixtapes. The name of the group is short for "Guerrilla Unit" as well as "Gangsta Unit".

Early days:
The group's founding members, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo all grew up on the same block, they rapped and sold drugs together. When 50 Cent was spotted and signed to a label, both Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo worked hard on mixtapes in order to gain attention as artists themselves. 50 Cent was then dropped from his label due to him being shot 9 times in front of his grandmother's house. They saw 50 Cent as too much of a risk to keep.

Rise to fame:
After being shot, 50 Cent signed to Interscope Records. Due to the success of his debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', he was granted his own record label. This was when G-Unit Records was created.
The group continued to work hard and released several mixtape series which earned them a lot of attention in the rap industry. The most prominent of these being 50 Cent Is the Future, God's Plan, No Mercy, No Fear and Automatic Gunfire. G-Unit have also started a mixtape series with their DJ, DJ Whoo Kid, called G-Unit Radio.
Before the group had a chance to record its debut album, Tony Yayo was sentenced to prison for a gun-possession charge as well as bail-jumping. During Tony Yayo's prison sentence, the group signed Nashville rapper, Young Buck. They continued their activity, working on yet more mixtape recordings. In particular, their 'G-Unit Remix' to 50 Cent's "P.I.M.P." was successful.
During Tony Yayo's prison sentence, G-Unit recorded their debut album, Beg for Mercy. The album was quickly released on November 14, 2003 to combat bootlegging and had significant commercial success. Tony Yayo made only two appearances on the album, both on songs that were recorded before his arrest.

Former members:
Several artists have left or been removed from the group for various reasons.
Bang 'Em Smurf was never an official member of G-Unit, but very closely affiliated with them before they signed to Interscope Records. He claimed that before 50 Cent saw mainstream success, the two recorded a mixtape from which they would earn $5 each, they sold 400,000 copies. 50 Cent allegedly never gave Bang Em' Smurf his share. In addition to this Bang Em' Smurf claimed that 50 Cent did not contact or bail him out whilst he was in jail. This led to him and his close friend, Domination, no longer wanting to be affiliated with the group. Domination was never an official member of G-Unit but was a close friend of Bang 'Em Smurf during his G-Unit days. After the two had a brief feud with 50 Cent and G-Unit in 2003, Domination and Bang 'Em Smurf were no longer associated with G-Unit.
The Game was originally placed into G-Unit by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. However after a while tensions began to rise between G-Unit and the rapper. 50 Cent claimed that The Game was being disloyal to the group because he did not want to get involved with the feuds between G-Unit and other rappers, even going as far as to say that he wished to work with them. 50 Cent also felt that he did not receive enough recognition for the writing of tracks on The Games debut album. This resulted in what is arguably the biggest feud since the feud between Nas and Jay-Z. For more information see G-Unit vs. The Game.

Albums:
In 2003, the groups debut album, Beg for Mercy, was released. However, whilst the album was being recorded, Tony Yayo was sentenced to jail on charges of gun possession. Therefore, he only makes two appearances both on pre-recorded tracks. His face is seen on the brick wall of the album cover because he could not be photographed on account of his jail sentence. Beg for Mercy sold 2.3 million copies in the U.S. and 4 million copies worldwide. The only featured guest on the album was R&B singer, Joe. Production came from Hi-Tek, Dr. Dre, Scott Storch as well as others.

G-Unit have confirmed that they are currently working and recording for their second album, Shoot to Kill, which will be released during 2007.
