G-Unit leader 50 Cent recently lashed back at critics attacking his brand and spoke on the wealth he provided to any artist he signed.
Speaking via Twitter, Fif unleashed his fury to all naysayers and anti-Unit fans.
"I own g-unit that's not a surprise I built it but I also own g-unot these fools are so far behind me its not funny, I'm a work in progress.," he tweeted December 19.
"Iv made every artist I signed rich some have no moral base. So they show no respect and they have no loyalty."
"I think beefing with artist has tainted my legacy. It makes people think I need it to win. ill be around after they meet the repo man. SK"
"Watch me destroy every one who put's them selves in compaction with me. This album cycle its gonna be to hard to keep up with me." (50 Cent's Twitter)
A couple years ago, 50 opened up on his falling out with ex-Unit member Game.
"I doubt that strongly," 50 said about collaborating with Game in the future. "I never really understood, I didn't know what the motivation was for The Game issues. Initially it was a decision on his part, I went over it in my head like a million times...I didn't have a long period of time with Game, we worked for five days. Dre spent a year in the studio with him, so he had a chance to be around him and gauge what kind of character he is. Right after [his debut] was out, it was like, 'I'm hot,' because of the actual number of records he sold at that point...You'll see Rick Ross out there as if he was a correctional officer when I went into his background. This guy is rapping like he's a drug dealer when he's a correction officer. Game background, when you went into that, he used to be a stripper. He used to work at his mom's strip joint. So it was interesting themes that I seen from both of them but it didn't match what the content was and then I seen the transformation myself." ("Big Boy's Neighborhood")
Game previously apologized to the Unit and said his past "G-Unot" taunts were due to his youth.
"Jimmy [Iovine] always says, 'Man, I told you guys not to break up the Beatles,'" Game said in an interview. "He says he told John Lennon the same thing a long time ago. But I was young, man. I was dumb. I did a lot of dumb things. I felt me and 50 clashed. I'm not gonna diss 50. I'm not gonna go back on the plane. He had his side, I had my side. I did what I felt was necessary for me and my career to have longevity and survive in hip-hop and music to be around when I'm Quincy Jones' age -- not just be Quincy Jones' age, but be a Quincy Jones. Now, four albums in, I can honestly say from [Lloyd] Banks to Young Buck to [Dr.] Dre to Yayo to whoever, if it would have kept going, endless paper. Millions of albums sold --- because we were great together. Me and 50's chemistry was like how Method Man was to Redman when they get in. You know when Method Man gets with Redman, it's going down."

After the West Coast rapper used "G-Unot" in the mid-2000's to smear Fif's brand, reports later stated the G-Unit general registered the name.
G-Unit continued to feud with The Game who responded during a performance at Summer Jam and launched a boycott of G-Unit called "G-Unot". The phrase G-Unot is a pun on the group's name, and a pejorative term to refer to the group. It is short for "G (Gangster) You Not". 50 Cent has since registered the G-Unot trademark for himself which has in turn prevented The Game from using it anymore. (Wikipedia)
