Hip hop group from Queens, New York consisting of the triumvirate Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and 50 Cent. The three brought out mix tapes on their own that eventually led to the desired success.

G-Unit band name origins - Guerilla MarketingThe most famous member probably is 50 Cent (real name Curtis James Jackson III), the same who explained in an interview what the name G-Unit means: ‘You know what G-Unit stands for? Guerrilla Unit as in warfare, it’s military inspired. And the ‘G’ in G-Unit also stands for Gangsta, which is associated with 50 Cent.’

There are secondary sources that interpret G-Unit as Gorilla-Unit, but these have probably been put on the wrong track by 50 Cent’s clothing line, that does have labels with the name Gorilla-Unit on them.
