"Poppin' Them Thangs" is a song recorded by G-Unit and produced by Dr. Dre & Scott Storch. It was released in November 2003 as the second single from their debut album, Beg for Mercy. The first verse of the song is rapped by 50 Cent, followed by Lloyd Banks, and the final verse is rapped by Young Buck.

Music video[edit]

A music video was shot for the song, in which G-Unit are involved in a meeting with many of the world's various gang leaders. Near the end of the video, G-Unit soldiers, cameo by The Game, arrive to convince the gang leaders to back down and give in to G-Unit's demands. Later, G-Unit owns a company called Yayo's Trucking Co., a reference to, at time, jailed G-Unit member, Tony Yayo.
