I’m Surprised. Kind of.

g unit

This track caught me kind of off guard. It’s off of G-Unit’s T.O.S. album (which after listening through once sounds kind of like it was recorded sometime between Get Rich or Die Tryin and The Hunger for More, which isn’t too bad cause I liked both of those) and the track goes off about how thug they are. What really surprised me was that they sampled one of my favorite old-ass brazilian samba jams by Cartola.

I’m guessing somebody was watching ‘City of God’, the closest any movie will ever be to a Grand Theft Auto flick (and based off a true story), and thought that using a track from a gangsta movie would fit on a gangsta track. They get my props.

First the OG version:

Cartola — Preciso Me Encontrar

…and now the G-Unit.

G-Unit feat. Mavado — Let It Go

Anybody seen Walk Hard? Kind of reminds me of the ending.
