Wondering what G-Unit will sound like when they’re fully immersed in today’s musical landscape? For a taste, look no further than their latest release, “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” which dropped on Friday (June 27).
The track — originally recorded by Jeremih and YG — is produced by DJ Mustard and Mick Schultz. And if you’ve turned on the radio this year, then you’re well aware that, for a number of hits, it’s Mustard on the beat, h-e.
We’ll have to wait until November or December for the Unit’s reunion album, to hear what they sound like on a full project with original production in 2014. But we should get plenty more of these warm ups — of which we’ve already gotten a handful — on their upcoming mixtape.
“You’ll see a mixtape come out before [the album],” 50 told MTV News recently. “The material that you see us putting out, it’s just getting back to the way we did it from the very beginning. We’re gonna start over and work like we need a record deal.”
“But while we’re putting out that music, we’re making the coolest original content and letting that be there for the actual album.”
