Blood Money [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Blood Money provides G-Unit with the opportunity to attach themselves to the legacy of Mobb Deep, and it gives Mobb Deep the chance to connect with a younger set of rap fans. Both groups take full advantage. The G-Unit stamp is all over the album, from the packaging to the mostly self-contained content -- 50 Cent drops in on five tracks, while Young Buck, Tony Yayo, and Lloyd Banks also guest. The album alternately sounds like a proper Mobb Deep album and a Mobb Deep album hosted and occasionally overrun by G-Unit, and neither camp is close to operating at full strength. The best example of the alliance's negative effect on the headliners is "Give It to Me," a rote "Candy ...

The best example of the alliance's negative effect on the headliners is "Give It to Me," a rote "Candy Shop" knockoff in which Prodigy only fuels the argument that he has slipped as a lyricist: "I'm tired of finger-f*cking this phone/Phone calls bore me, you got me horny." Havoc six tracks, Alchemist "The Infamous", and Sha Money XL and Ky Miller "Put Em in Their Place" do come up with some productions worthy of Mobb Deep's old standard.
Boston Globe - Linda Laban
The Walkmen's third CD is a raw nerve of cold detachment and wrenching passion.

    This is a highly recommended LP.

    I'm really feelin this LP. You can actually bump every song without having to skip a song. Even though Infamy is my favorite, this joint hits 2. I'm glad they on G-Unit.

    New Sound

    I feel that this ablum is a new sound to Mobb Deep. Their early albums were classics but all the beats were the same. havoc stepped his game on this album. Besides the fact that prodigy now sounds like fifty. Well tries to sound like fifty he stepped his game up too. So Ill give this album a four because they didnt go back and get big noyd, IM3, and the rest of the dudes who use to roll with them when they were getting bounced around at jive. But G-Unit helped them so the album is great.

    The Infamous

    The album is fire , Hav is the most sleeped on rapper and producer in the game and P is coming with those slick lines that he is knowen for . Blood Money is better then I thought it would be me not being a G - Unit fan like most I thought 50 would bring us a watered down Mobb Deep but nah .

    This album is Bangin!

    For any true Mobb Deep fan this a return to top form for them. The production on this CD is great from start to finish. I bootleged this cd 2 week before it came out thinking it would be more studio thug B.S. ive come to expect from G-Unit but it was apparent from the start P and Hav came with that fire. The stand out in my opinion is Capital H, Capital P. As long as you can stomache the last 2 pieces of trash this album is worth every penny trust me.(I went and bought the real cd when it dropped)

    Wha Happened?

    If there was a zero star this would have got it. I am a long time Mobb Deep fanatic, and this is an outrage. A crime has been commited and its got G-Unot finger prints all over it. Where is the Havoc classic beats and the Prodigy razor rhymes. You get none of that with Blood Money. I know you got to roll with some type of group now a days to make money, but be real, this is garbage. If you like the true Mobb Deep like me cop any of the first 3 or 4. This a commercial failure.

    Dissapointing

    50cent ruined the album, too much gunit guest apperances and the production was very subpar coming from a mobb deep album, prodigy has also fallen off something horrible....their last album was much better than this

    MO MO MOBB

    I think this album will get credit but it wont be held on to as much or taken as serius as murda musik,infamy,hell on earth, the early releases were classics,im not sure about this album i hope mobb deep kept it to the streets and didnt sell out with wack songs just for airplay.
