Comeback Crews of the Year – Dipset or G-Unit

Feels like 2003 all over again. The crew love has returned to hip-hop with the reunion of Dipset (“Salute”) and G-Unit making noise with their new banger “Where The Dope At.” Save for Lil Wayne’s Young Money collective, hip-hop hasn’t been churning out the dope crews like they used to. One can make the argument that since Dipset and G-Unit released their debut albums, Diplomatic Immunity and Beg For Mercy, respectively, rap crews have been a dying breed. Let’s take a look at the head to head (no homo) match up of hip-hop’s last two dynasties. —Rondell Conway

Members: Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Julez Santana, Freeky Zekey
Reppin’: Harlem
With the charismatic Cam playing the lead, Jones filled the role of loyal Capo, Santana represented the young wildcard, while the steady Zekey held it all together behind the scenes. No homo.

Members: 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck*
Reppin’: Queens/Nashville, Tennessee
After 50 Cent dropped his game-changing debut album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin, in early 2003, the next move was to put his boys (Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo) from Queens on. With the addition of a brash Nashville Tenn-A-Key rapper, Young Buck the foursome was one of the most feared in the game upon their debut. Since then the Unit has been through quite a few controversial additions and subtractions, but the core trio, Fif, Banks, and Yayo, still remains.
