New York rapper 50 Cent has shared his input on Game's past suggestions to re-join G-Unit five years after being kicked out of the rap crew.
Confirming he was aware of Game's interest in a reunion, Fif told radio host Funkmaster Flex his ex-associate's pleas were likely a result of him no longer paying attention to their dispute.
"I heard that," Fif said when told about Game wanting to re-join G-Unit. "It was six songs, they put out six joints and ain't nothing buzzing. They thought anti-50 as opposed to pro-50. You know what I think? I think once I stopped arguing, the interest dropped. Because as long as there's an argument, you're as interesting as the people you're actually arguing with. So even with Rick Ross and all the people I went back and forth with, that was good for them on the other level. I'm really not interested in working with him because I don't understand exactly why that happened. If I did something wrong, like, [Lloyd] Banks had a legitimate reason to be upset with me at one point. His pops passed away and his moms was in a car accident, he shut down because he didn't see the response he was looking for from the Rotten Apple record and I was a little insensitive in those areas because I didn't know my father and I lost my mother when I was eight. So I don't see a reason why I should stop pushing. If your pops passes away -- depression is a luxury I can't afford." (Hot 97)
Earlier this month, Lloyd Banks said Game's pleas were a sign of his career taking a dip.
"I mean, G-Unit is in tact," Banks told DJ Vlad in an interview after being asked about a reunion. "At the end of the day, man, Game, he knows. He knows the history the same way we do. We all know what was said, the actions that were took. Some things you don'g get passed, you know what I'm saying? At this point on, I'm really not concerned with it. I'm just pushing what Banks gotta do, getting my brand going. I mean, if everything's gravy, you wouldn't hear those possibilities come up. If everything was going on, and platinum albums and selling them on their own and all that sh*t, the last thing you would hear is a peace treaty...It's only so long you can stand off the hype of somebody else. That's like the whole thing when everybody was saying G-Unit this, G-Unit that, G-Unit ain't relevant. How the f*ck does somebody tell you that. You're not supposed to hear that. If you heard that I'm not relevant, that means I'm well, live, relevant. They're talking about me..." (Vlad TV)
The Unit's Tony Yayo previously envisioned Game re-teaming with G-Unit.
"You know what I think would be cool if Game comes back," Yayo asked XXL Mag staff during a live UStream broadcast. "I'd set him up and smoke him on the tour bus or something. Or throw him off the tour bus or run him over with the tour bus or poison his food, or, I don't know, something. I want him to get back so I can set him up...I don't see nobody I had beef with. We're running around doing our thing and they're running around doing nothing. I don't want to be friends with Game. I don't want to be friends with that guy. That guy's bi-polar. He's gonna say 'F*ck G-Unit' tomorrow. He's crying one day saying, 'Oh, hip-hop,' then he said, 'Oh, I want to be with the Unit,' then he said, 'I don't want beef with n*ggas,' then 'F*ck Yayo.' I don't got time for that man." (XXL Mag)
A few months back, Game said he would be open to reunion talks.
"It's a new day and it's really time to get money you know what I'm saying -- So all I'm saying is why not get out here wing it like Voltron and sh*t," Game said in an interview. "Bring it back full circle and make some motherf*ckin' money...I wasn't opposed to it...He got an ego. I got an ego. Ain't nobody apologizing. Ain't nobody saying that they was wrong, but you ain't gotta do that to make amends. You just gotta get together, do the sh*t, and you can do it for the sake of money. We don't gotta break no peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in half and do the sh*t. Come to an agreement as men, get the sh*t done like men." (Hip Hop DX)
In March 2005, Game was kicked out of G-Unit by 50 Cent due to internal conflicts.
