In recent months it’s seemed that 50 Cent has been subliminally dissing his own crew, G-Unit. Back in July he told XXL regarding Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, “they need to get themselves together,” before making an appearance on Big Boy’s Neighborhood to elaborate, “I’ve enabled them to a point where they feel like they don’t have to do anything.”
It’s been quite a while since Curtis, Lloyd and Tony all appeared on a track together. In fact the closest thing to this was when both 50 and Yayo appeared on separate tracks on Banks’ 2010 album The Hunger For More 2.
Recently, in an interview with Ear Candy Mornings on Sirius XM, 50 said,”probably not,” when asked if there will be a G-Unit reunion. He then harshly went on to say, “I’ve offered everything I could offer to G-Unit. I allowed them to be in front of an audience the entire time, to develop their own fan base, and have people recognize their attributes and their defects at that point….A reunion? You can kiss my motherf*cking a$$ as far as that’s concerned.” Ouch.
It’s interesting to hear how 50 portrays Banks and Yayo as a couple of unmotivated bums when they have both released more material than 50 in recent years. Between 2010 and 2012, Banks has dropped three projects (H.F.M. 2, The Cold Corner, and V6: The Gift) and Yayo has dropped eight projects (Gunpowder Guru, Gunpowder Guru 2, Hawaiian Snow, Gunpowder Guru 3, El Chapo, Meyer Lansky, Gunpowder Guru 4, El Chapo 2, and Sex, Drugs & Hip-Hop). Between 2010 and 2012, 50 has dropped two projects (The Big 10 and The Lost Tape). Yes, they aren’t the entrepreneurs that 50 is, but they still stay dedicated to the music.
