Thug Lovin': Valentine's Day Playlist

"I'd sweet talk her if she / 'Cause all she really want is for a ni**a to treat her right"-- 50 Cent

When I think of great moments in hip-hop I was fortunate enough to be alive for, the rise of G-Unit is at the pinnacle. Present members, Curtis Jackson (50 Cent), Tony Yayo, Uncle Murda; and past members, t In the height of 106 & Park's power, I was in middle school listening Joe's silky voice dips over the Miami as the G-Unit crew rolled in, each with a vignette of sex, passion, and of desire. Now, there is a grand wave of nostalgia I ride when playing the song on my car radio, but at 13, I felt grown, learning what my body could be capable of under the hooded cover of night. Now that I'm older, I hold a very special place in my heart for the impact the East Coast force not only had on my love for hip-hop but for this genre of love song. To celebrate V-Day and to pay homage to G-Unit, the following playlist includes Ja-Rule, 50 Cent, Chingy, Kanye West, Ashanti, Mary J.
