Project: Beg for Mercy (album)

Collaborators: G-Unit

50 Cent and Lloyd Banks (one of the all-time great not-rap-name rap names) recorded the first G-Unit record while third member Tony Yayo was in prison. Granted, Yayo's appearances on the album were laid down before he went inside, but that's still a gangsta move of epic proportions. For those who want to reminisce, go listen to the signature track, "Stunt 101."
