G-Unit's Tony Yayo has displayed his reaction toward ex-groupmate Game's Purp & Patron mixtape by dismissing the project's quality.
Referencing the mixtape's extensive tracklist and Game's preference for Pharrell-produced beats, Yayo clowned the ex-Unit member.
"N*ggas mixtapes is trash rightnow 28 songs of bullsh*t a waste of pharell beats homie lol," Yayo tweeted Monday (January 31). "I smell blood keep sleeping on the underdog Ice bookings sucks dog ... Some of you twitter gangstas are funny lol." (Tony Yayo's Twitter)
Following the mixtape's release last week, Game discussed the strength of underground releases.
"A mixtape is pretty much just calling in favors from, you know, some of the biggest rap superstars who happen to be good friends of mine off the mic and them just delivering for me and me throwing it all out there. But an album, you know, I've got to take my time because that's my legacy. I can joke and I can play around with different topics and lyrics and different rhyme patterns and sounds on a mixtape, but on an album I've got to take it seriously because that's who I am, it's what defines me."

Last summer, Yayo envisioned the mischievous things he would do if Game realigned 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)
G-Unit producer Sha Money XL recently spoke to SOHH about Game and Young Buck's exits from 50 Cent's camp.
"I tip my hat off to 50 because he helped a lot of real n*ggas get money and a lot of artists that came up, Banks is chilling, Yayo is chilling, Buck was chilling, I don't know where he at right now but he was good. Even Game, that's why he was called 'Hurricane,' because he was riding that G-Unit wave, where's that sh*t at now? Those guys still make those records and obviously it's not the same quality of music so had he still been on G-Unit, I think he would be on fire right now. That sound, 'Hate It Or Love It,' you can never make that record again. I just don't do the turn love and then turn cold a n*gga and get crazy with him in public type of thing. That sh*t is for cowards and n*ggas that just want attention, I don't do that." (SOHH)
