We gave it an A-

Mobb Deep’s first release for 50 Cent’s G-Unit label is the duo’s finest body of work since their 1995 masterpiece, The Infamous. This new alliance translates into radio-friendly tracks with street cred (”Put ‘Em in Their Place,” ”Outta Control”) and inspired collaborations with top-shelf guest stars and producers (50 Cent, Mary J. Blige, the Alchemist). But despite Blood Money‘s big-budget frills, group members Havoc and Prodigy remain true to their dark (”In Love With the Moula”), gritty (”The Infamous”), and often socially irresponsible (”Click Click”) roots.
