Apparently 50′s leaving his past failures behind him, Young Buck, Olivia, Game, (to name a few) and now Fif is looking for new members to join the Unit.
Current members Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks have earned their own names and respect and don’t really have the time to ride with 50 because they’re doing their own thing.
With his upcoming tour and his partners now leading their own careers, 50 is on the lookout for new talent and is trying to bring some new faces to the crew. In a recent interview with MTV’s Mixtape Daily, 50 says:
“It’s interesting because they probably won’t be coming with me. In the U.S., Banks has momentum with the first single off his new album, ‘Beamer, Benz or Bentley.’ So he’ll be out [on his own tour] with H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger For More 2). While he’s doing that, it probably wouldn’t make sense for Yayo to come with me because his record is almost done now — he should use that time to complete his record and release it shortly after. But I’ll be running around.”
“You’ll see new faces, because I’m looking for new artists now. I’ll sign new artists and take them with me and kinda groom them. I don’t specifically say, ‘I want this kind of artist’ — I look for talent that inspires me, that complements what I do with their own thing. Some of the stuff you can’t teach a person; they gotta have it.”
