T.O.S. (Terminate on Sight)
Producer(s): various
Label: G-Unit/Interscope
One of the best attributes of 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo's 2003 album "Beg for Mercy" was its balance of radio-friendly and comical tracks, but "T.O.S. (Terminate on Sight)" sounds like 16 cuts of the same murderous lyrics atop heavy bass. There are a few entertaining joints, like the infectious Rick Rock-produced "Rider Part 2" featuring a chorus ("whoa whoa") that's perfectly hard-edged for East Coast radio. "Party Ain't Over" features former G-Unit member Young Buck, who switches up his cadence alongside a fun guitar lick and hand claps. "You So Tough" is a thinly veiled attack on Atlanta MC T.I., where 50 essentially calls the rapper a snitch for emerging from stiff gun charges with a light jail sentence. Ultimately, G-Unit has returned to its aggressive roots, but it would've been wonderful to hear it rap over a more varied assortment of beats. —Hillary Crosley
