Comeback Crews of the Year – Dipset or G-Unit

While both crews made their mark on the streets with a slew of mixtapes, Dipset was more influential in the streets in part to their unbridled approach musically. Where G-Unit won mainstream appeal for making a play for radio with some of their records, Dipset pretty much kept it street, allowing them to forge a cult following. Rocking pink and contributing new slang to hip-hop was a Dipset thing, while the Unit made major moves with a successful clothing line and were able to build an international fan base through their music.

The key to any successful partnership is showing a strong accord among its members. While in previous years G-Unit has gone through some very public breakups with the Game and Young Buck, it’s been the Diplomats who have had in-house beef of late. Now with that disagreement between Cam and Jones apparently behind them it appears all is good up in Harlem. With that said, I’ll have to say given the fact that the core of G-Unit (Fif, Banks, Yayo) has never been at odds publicly, unlike Cam and Capo, the Queen crew has shown never-ending loyalty.

For all their past accolades, what really matters now for both crews is what they’ve done for us lately. The Dipset are planning a new album after squashing their beef. The new single is cool, but it doesn’t have that feel of natural cohesion in it. For G-Unit, riding the success of singles by Banks and Yayo has initiated talk of a new album. And if their new single is a precursor for what’s to come, then the Unit might have the competition begging for mercy like it was 2003 all over again.
