“Don’t Sweat It”

The mixtape assassin is back. But G-Unit’s second biggest seller, Lloyd Banks, has his work cut out during New York City’s summer of discontent. He says he’s still not respected enough as a solo artist and he thinks the past “year of insults” has hurt the overall quality of rap. Oh, but anyone want to battle? Now’s the time.

“Games Haters Play”

You’ve heard him before, but you’ve never heard him quite like this. 50 Cent opens up about his relationship with convicted drug lord Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, G-Unit’s sales slump and The Game’s status at Interscope Records.

Features

“Candy Paint”
You’d think the first solo artist to come out on T.I.’s Grand Hustle might be a little worried about being overshadowed. Not Young Dro. He’s paid his dues. He knows his hues. He shares his views.

“Problem”
Rap folks around NYC get to feeling a way when the nation looks elsewhere for its hip-hop heat. From Brooklyn to the Boogie Down, the city’s MCs are going all out to bring the crown back to town.

“Hustler Musik”
Mixtape mavens, alert: XXL counts down the Top 20 Street Albums you need to own.

“The Champ”
Battle-tested and sellout proof, this Chi-Town underground fave is taking an unorthodox route to the big time. Walk for a while with Mr. “Jesus Walks” himself: Rhymefest.

    Why don’t you guys just use the same picture of 50 Cent every month?

    You could save a lot of money on photographers.

  • young Hustla

    Fuck 50 BWS 4 live!! GgGgGg-UNOT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • el_pollo_loco06

    i glad ya put lloyd banks and 50cent onda cover.it iz sad dat diz year n.y. aint selling muzik like da south.even g-unit have problems rite now up in n.y.maybe because of so much bootleging.you noe n.y. sells bootlegs.every1 doing find but tony yayo went gold.and mobb deep did well 4 itz first week but da album didnt at least went gold.datz messed up.but mobb got 1 more album with g-unit and diz time 50cent have 2 arrange sumthing on their next album.member 50 say they should do what they do.i think 50 kinda rush them on their album.olivia should came out dan make a g-unit album so fans reconiged them dan have mobb deep.o yea game waz a stripper everybody have to look at this clips http://gunitworld.com/feature_change_of_heart_part_1.html and http://gunitworld.com/feature_change_of_heart_part_2.html

  • Robby Tom

    Are you guys running out of ideas for 50? That article was lame! I don’t see The Source having retread articles of the same bullshit artist about the same bullshit (at least not anymore)

  • West Coast

    XXL is in the business of selling magazines, you non-business minded ppl dont understand that shit. If they put Papoose on the cover they’ll sell 6 copies.

  • AlbanianNigga

    fuck that fagzino crap magazine, XXL the shit.

  • Young Guice

    Good read right there. 50 really is that dude, man. Nigga just real as hell, and he sticks to the laws of the street. Nobody in the industry has gone through what this nigga has gone through period. God is really shining on this dude, so hate an see what YOU get. Holla !!!

  • http://www.gunitworld.com G-Unot Killer

  • http://XXLmag.com westside story

    50 with Banks man 50 wont you ever let Banks be on the cover alone.I dont care what anyone say I respect 50,Banks,and Game.GGGGGGG-UNITE.

  • H-DUB

    I bet the Doggfather on the Cover is up next ! Or maybe Pharrell? If you got confidence in your Mag and what´s waiting for the Reader inside, the Cover is not that important, trust me! But right, it sucks to see G-UNIT Artists on the Cover like every 2nd Issue ….

  • http://www.myspace.com/mostwanted_aka_mw Junior

    i gotta agree!! 50 such a fuckin idiot!! he nevers lets Banks get on tha cover alone!! he did the same to Gayo!! i like Buck alot n Banks aint that bad but i could never where a G-unit shirt juss ta rep for them cuz every single one says 50 on it!!!!! fuck this snitch 50!!!!

  • LE$

    last time i checked 50 prolly sold mo himself than all rappers put together in the last 3 to 4 years so if you own a mag and you want it to sell who do you put on the cover??? 50 dummys papoose or however you spell it os wack and has no charisma or potential to do anything in this industry so leave that shit alone and quit hating on g unit they doing they thang

  • claude

    G unit is the future, Can’t u see???

  • FROM CA

    I ASK MY SELF WAHT FUCKING REGHN ITS OVER CANT U SEE IT,SEEING IS BELIEVING?

  • XICO

    Might as well call it 50XL Magazine…

  • XICO

    Omar Cruz is in this month’s issue? Definately coppin’ this issue.

  • A Dawg

    damn would you guys give banks a cover by himself. fifty didnt say shit in his whole interview he just bitched about a bunch of shit that im sure everybody read a million times. He dont need fifty to be everywhere with him, he’s a grown ass man and he aint fifty’s protege anymore.

  • leemangena

  • The Chancellor

    All i gotta say is can XXL cover Jay coming out with anotheer aalbum and Tru-Life just roasting the whole jipset on hits new track? ROC 4 Life Shoutout to Hip-Hop and Lenny S.

  • The Chancellor

    oh yeah can you stop hatin on 50? He hasnt been on the cover in over a year….last cover was jay before that eminem and d-12 and fuck you proof just died

  • http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ladiesofrapsoul Byron Shropshire

    I’m so tired of seeing G-Unit on the cover of XXL. Do they have some sort of contract with XXL? What don’t we know about them that we haven’t found out in the other 13 magazines which they were on the cover! I started reading this magazine when ya’ll had Foxy Brown on the cover looking sexy, which was the last time a woman graced the cover back in 2003. What’s the deal? I need some pics for my Yahoo Group, “Ladies of Rap Soul” @

    http://groups.yahoo.com/ladiesofrapsoul

    Remy Ma deserved a cover, Trina deserved a cover. Shawnna’s doin’ her thang right now, put her on the cover! Mia X doin’ her thang on MySpace, put her somewhere in the magazine telling her Hurricane Katrina story!

    C’mon XXL, enough with G-Unit!

  • http://lyrisuisjairusyahoo.com young chuck

    i thought they were gonna put nas on the front cover and then when you think just when somethin nice is gonna happen they put these niggas on there to many rappers that are nice to put theys 15 sec duddes on twice a year wat about people like raekwon or common or kanye west lupe fiasco,i can go on and on for days.but not these lame ass nas….rip pac but dam i miss a nigga like that.

  • D-Boy

    Man, why is it everybody is hating on G-Unit? To me, G-Unit runs New York and Cali. In order to rule, u gotta sell records. Who was da last nigga in N.Y. to go Platinum, 50. Who was da last person to go Plat on da West Coast, Game, and at da time he was a G-Unit soldier. Its like dis in rap, if it aint in da south, its G-Unit, they bout to take ova dat too. Yall sayin, white people buyin they records and thats why they sell a million. Last time i checked, money only has one color, and its green. Aslong as u get dat paper, it dont matta. Cash rules everything around me, C.R.E.A.M., get da money.

  • FROM CA

    GUNIT WHO???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  • Will

    Wow! 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks are on the cover! What a shock! How come y’all couldn’t put a memorable photo of 2Pac on the cover? On a count that it is the month of his death 10 years ago. Matter of fact, he’s not even mentioned. Y’all can do better than that!

  • jcnkr

    damn havent seen fif in a while he need to make a new hit for this summer even if u dont like fif n g-unit u gotta admit that they got sum hit records summer with out fif just sucks (music wise) gggg-unit laugh at ppl that r going to the source that shit is wack (even thoe i buy it) xxl is the best compared to vib n source haha hiphop bible my dick g-unit

  • Mr.Me

    Wow another 50 cover. Fuck sellin magazines, XXL is conforming to that commercial/manufactured packaged-rap bullshit. Instead of makin the rules and going against the grain, XXL is just riding the wave wit this gunit shit. I wouldnt want my favorite artist on the cover as many times as 50 because then it would seem real suspect. XXL need to put YN on the cover and interview him about why he loves the taste of gunit semen on his gums rather than anything else in hip-hop/rap world (gunit probably got more pages than all the Eye Candy’s combined since XXL started. I dont even think XXL is dick ridin gunit for mag sales. I really think ya’ll niggas get ya rocks off everythime you get to hang around the “unit”. Anyways I just had to get that out cuz I been ridin wit XXL since the JayZ/Master P covers and yall used to be the shit.

    Oh yea, and magazines are gonna be just as dead as music sales in a few years once more people realize they can find out everything they want to know and more on the net (mag pix, articles, whatever).

    3′s Up!!!

  • marlon

    There is no doubt that xxl is that magazine, but its funny how you guys question whether 50 or game should have game’s plat plaque while i wonder if 50 should have your magazine if gets credit for games album then he definitely gets credit for your magazine. Also you guys havre your head so far up 50′s ass you don’t even see what is happening in the street. Papoose runs things, straight up. How are you gonna have an article about new york taking it back and not speak on poose, how the fuck you gonna have a top mixtapes in the street mention game and slim thug and the other 12 year old suburban girls favorite rappers and not mention any of the pap tapes you guys are seriously falling out of the loop, keep making that money cause you guys clearly have no love for the shit.

    After last months ending with nas is coming I was really looking forward to that shit

    and g-unit is afraid to come to cali, spider loc cant go back to his hood cause his brothers a snitch, and half of L.A. wants him dead, alot of blood and crip sets are after him, his bitch ass better stay in conneticut with 50 and the rest of the gay unit thats afraid to show up in NY and Cali

    you know they cancelled 2 shows in the bay this year, cause they know the bay hates them, so does L.A., there bus almost got rushed by 80 ppl, spider loc is afraid to show his face in oakland, he cancelled his show cause yukmouth is his enemy and oakland has his back, and he made up some bullshit that yukmouth cried to a radio station and got the show cancelled, thats all bullshit, spider loc knew yuks home town would of smoked him

    and lets not forget san diego, spider and gayo almost got stomped out at that show had to cancel it early cause a couple od SD bloods where trying to fight them, these fools are pussies, and you geeks need to realize that

  • Ray Ray

    50 Cent has to be the most insecure rapper in the industry. First, he disses Fat Joe and Jadakiss for doing a song with Ja Rule. Then he says that The Game’s next album will flop because he won’t be a part of it. Finally, he gets The Game dropped from Aftermath and theatens Dr Dre if he works on The Game’s album.
    Fact 1. 50 Cent was jealous because The Game was getting so much hype prior to The Documentary.
    Fact 2. 50 Cent wanted to control his artist’s careers and that didn’t sit well with The Game.
    Fact 3. The Game continued to generate buzz even after he got kicked out of G-Unit so 50 Cent tried to blackball him from appearing on other albums (Lil Kim, Kanye West, etc).
    Fact 4. 50 Cent has yet to diss Snoop Dogg and Scarface for working with The Game.
    Fact 5. With or without Dr Dre, The Game has generated enough buzz to stand on his own two feet.
    Fact 6. The last 2 G-Unit albums have not lived up to expectations.

    Listen, I enjoy the music of both 50 Cent and The Game. To pick sides in this battle is ludicrous. I know The Game’s rep has taken a huge L lately but judge him by his music. Half the ni**as in the industry are full of s**t. 50 Cent is the only artist from his label that will sell. Everyone else is going to struggle to hit platimun and that’s being real. So f**k what you heard.

  • Mad Dolo

    I was very impressed with the 50 article. I have always admired him for the way he made it even though i am a fan of ja rule. When he first came out with wanksta i saw it as am attempt for interscope to just use him like death row is doing tupac. but he was able to prevail in spite of. hats off to fifty and banks and young buck, but g unit could do without yayo, mobb deep and the rest. THses three have always been tight and continue to be.

  • Amen-RA

    People need to stop hatin on G-UNIT. 50 was just showing support for banks cover. On the song In Da Club, 50 said the plan was to put the rap game in choke hold and thats exactly what he did. Was anybody hatin on 50 when he 1st came out? But now that he’s successful, people want to discredit him and his career. The people that say he’s a snitch are FOLLOWERS. They say that based on rumors and speculation and not on fact. As for Banks, few artists can match his lyricism.

    It’s about time Banks been gone for a minute. It’s too bad him and Buck ain’t doin the album on the same day. It’s time for the reign to come back to G-Unit. Especially after Mobb Deep could even go gold. I understand Tony Yayo he was on probation but he still went gold. This is going to go about double platinum.

  • Macdatruest

    50 cent is the George Bush of the rap game. He made enough money to buy his term as a leader of the game, and got excuses everytime his people flop but point the finger at other rappers. He sold 10 million at first, but I think everybody knew they were going to buy that album, because all the controversy about dude.( Thank Ja for that) But now after everybody know his story, all that’s left is some weak ass rap, and the same old talk about Supreme. The controversy shit didn’t work on Fat Joe and Jada, but he can get it from Game and don’t want it. Then Lloyd Banks said anytime you get on record and say a man’s name, you are just trying to sell records-How you think your boss got into the rap game. He tried to say everybody’s name in How to Rob an Industry Nigga, got his ho ass lit up in the mouth and now he rap ass-southern. Go, go, go shawty! I guess he did do one good thing, made Mobb Deep “filthy rotten rich” for getting G-Unit on their knuckles! HAHAHAHAH!!!!

  • Macdatruest

    Oh yeah, any nigga who like a nigga or buy his records because he got money is that nigga’s prostitute. He gettin rich off niggaz like you, that nigga who buy the rap album cause he think he it make him part of an in crowd. The same niggaz who saying 50 is running the rap game, in about a year, gone be on whoever else getting the most coverage at the time. G-Unit don’t do shit for niggaz on the street. Don’t no niggaz got a fifty verse they can point to as an example of his greatness, and if you wanna look at his sales-That’s a testament to Eminem, Dre, and mainstream media’s obsession with rappers getting shot. I could have been 50 cent. You could have been 50 cent. And one of us, with a tragedy, a bidding war, a white phenom rapper, and a legendary gangsta rap producer might be the next 50 cent The realest shit in the whole article was when banks hinted at a new jack from Milwaukee being the next to start a movement- cause Sean Mac is the livin’ shit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mil-Set for Life Niggaz

  • Michelle

    Dipset is a joke. Whoever told Jim Jones he was a “G”? If you ask me, the bastard’s been watching too many gangster movies.

    Anyways, I am so disappointed in Banks. If you listen to his old songs, back when G-Unit was broke, he was REALLY good; one of the best out of New York. But now that he ain’t hungry anymore, he basically sucks. Somebody needs to stop feeding him and let his ribs touch again. Maybe he’ll step his game up. I mean, what the f*** is a “My House”? GOD NO! He used to rap like the rent was past due and the lights were about to get cut off TOMORROW. Now he’s just…blah.

  • BIG D from harlem

  • d-boy_fresh

    hatin on 50 is pointless. i aint a 50 fan but you gotta admit he knows how to make a hit and the fact is he doin his thing like it or not, just like dre told em you-gotta milk this game for what its worth and the publicity is a big part of that. so what if all he’s good for is catchy hooks he dont give 2 squirts of piss what y’all think so bitch about the cover all you want but the truth is he is the fuel behind all them g-unit hits like lloyd banks “hands up”. so let him pose for them cover pictures if he pleases.

  • Macdatruest

    Hatin on 50 is pointless, but listening to garbage ass music because a major label got enough pull to keep getting their artist shit played is pointless too. Just cause this magazine sell wit 50 on it dont mean nigga wanna hear his Supreme story 7 months a year. Fuck all that shit. Explain how you can be genius enough to get coverage all the time while other niggaz drop classic shit. I know 50 probably don’t even bump them other niggas in G-Unit shit, except Game shit when nobody aint around. Fuck dick riding.

  • Gohan

    24/7 haters! I love these forums! All you ever wanna do is say “fuck 50″, “no, 50 great”. Damn man! If you don’t like the nigga, then don’t promote him. Because everytime you mention the dudes name thats all your doing, promoting him. You drag his name on, bring it up as a point of discussion and then bitch about him. You create interest in his new shit, he sells more records and so the world turns, and so on and so forth! Now i know that went over the head of some of you dumb fucks, so “for all you slow mutha fuckas i’ma break it down illa”, shut that fuck up and find something interesting to talk about. I’ve got know problem with 50 or Game, but i don’t wanna hear or read some comments from some dumb fuck who can’t even spell or speak English about who’s nut they’re riding and who’s give it them so hard (50) that their arses hurt! If you don’t want to listen to the bitch then turn of the system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gohan

    Obviously i’m one of those dumb fucks who can’t spell judging by the above!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Macdatruest

    A dumb fuck, and a stupid fuck too. You just cotradicted yourself with your whole point. I see what you sayin’ though it’s a good point, but I just hate when people try to make that”point of all points” trying to sum it all up. So let eveybody say what they want’ that’s what this is- comments and beefs right? Mil-Set, See?

  • Michelle

    Anybody find it weird that 50 (with his little goatee thing) and Supreme (circa 1988 mugshot) look alike? *cough*

    The state of N.Y hip hop is dead, they have no identity. Half of these niggas is NY south, and the other half is NY west, if you know what i mean.They on everybody else dicks right now. You have a couple of niggas that stay true but i think these niggas forget where they come from. When the fuck New York niggas start having bloods and crips, thats Kali SHIT!! yall say you started this hip hop shit then ACT LIKE IT

  • piru banga

  • Gohan

    So When Gayme and BWS were riding 50′s nuts, were you doing the same?….Sheep! You all say west coast, west coast, west coast! But when the best in the west (second to Spider Joke,syke)had an east coast boss NONE OF YALL were saying shit!

  • 11kap

    Fitty Snitch was very stupid to disrespect his elders the way he has done throughout his rap career. I guess he thought he would never get old himself. that’s why G-Unot is falling off. Their gimmick lasted for a little while. Yung Buck will soon be Old Buck. Then what?
    Lloyd Banks is the best out of G-Unit, because he is original and he never disrespected anyone, so he gets ‘Nuff Respect Everytime!

  • Diggy Doc

    All yall G-Unit dickridas who talk about nothing but MONEY, how much yall getting. Who cutting yall a check. Yall fucking ignorant ass niggas. I dont give a fuck who make wat, but i do no that at the end of the day, Dem D-Block boys got dat FIRE. Somethin u can actually listen to instead of just bobbin yo head cuz da beat hot. Banks mumble so fuckin much u cant understand wat he sayin sometimes, but dats da only nigga outta G-Unit I fuck wit. When u singing, u gotta have the system blasting off top. When u listen to D-Block u gon wanna blast dat shit, but u dont have to in order to feel dat shit. Timing is everything. If 50 never wouldve gotten shot, or got his ass whooped by Ja, then he wouldnt have shit to talk about. He wouldve been still at Columbia records crying like a lil bitch. He the only nigga in da game who NEEDS controversy. He wack. What happen to the Power of Tha Dollar 50? Shit wat happened to the Get Rich or Die Tryin 50? Niggas dont even wanna respect the fact that D-Block knows where the money at. They recognize dat shit, but they also no dat real shit.”U can c tha pictures i paint son, if i aint the king of NY then it aint one.
    Just tell me who fuckin won, and u can put some on it. I’m in tha ‘06 Supercharged wit nuttin on it.
    I’m mad hot, to have is to have not. My crackspot is protools on my labtop. Much cheaper than a Carter, is affordable,and i aint never gotta infiltrate cuz its portable.
    Eitha way ima pop dat nine,CALL HIM 40CENT NOW CUZ HE DROPPED DAT DIME.
    AND HE GOT ME KINDA JAMMED UP RITE NOW, I CANT LIE, BUT I DONT KNOW WHO TOLD HIS BLACK ASS HE CANT DIE.
    THE OTHA DAY I MADE 40 IN A HOUR, FUCK IN THA STUDIO, IM BERRY GORDY WIT DA POWDER.
    UH, NO RETREAT, NO SURRENDER, IM AT DA JUICE BAR ARMAGEDDON’S IN DA BLENDER.
    YEAH GETTING READY FOR THE WINTER, SWEATSUIT WEATHER,SOME REASON I SHOOT BETTA.

Reid or diddy or J-Z looking for rappers down here.That was 50.Fif you can chill in tucson any day. P.S. Fuck Ja,Crack,and Jada.Game you still tight though.

  • http://killasquadwestwingmyspace C.Lucciano(KILLA SQUAD)

    I just coped the September issue and was a lil disturbed by New York rap article and im a tell u why,First off by labeling the music N.Y. Hip Hop completely seperates yourself from the rest of the music genre and how can that be, its 2 my understanding that Hip Hop is Hip Hop weither from California, ST.Louis,Atlanta,and or New York.Thats how the media(White media)is able to blow shit out of porportion such as the eastcoast/westcoast so-called beef,and a host of other Hip Hop music related issues. The bottom line is music is music and hot music sells(with the exception of some radio favorites), me im from Cali The Bay 2 be exact,but i grew up on everything from 36 chambers, 2 the geto boys, to local legends like too-short and cougnut(r.i.p), so lets get it together people and start seeing shit for what it really is.

    I’m so tired of seeing G-Unit on the cover of XXL. Do they have some sort of contract with XXL? What don’t we know about them that we haven’t found out in the other 13 magazines which they were on the cover! I started reading this magazine when ya’ll had Foxy Brown on the cover looking sexy, which was the last time a woman graced the cover back in 2003. What’s the deal? I need some pics for my Yahoo Group, “Ladies of Rap Soul” @

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ladiesofrapsoul

    Remy Ma deserved a cover, Trina deserved a cover. Shawnna’s doin’ her thang right now, put her on the cover! Mia X doin’ her thang on MySpace, put her somewhere in the magazine telling her Hurricane Katrina story!

    C’mon XXL, enough with G-Unit!
