New York rap star 50 Cent has silenced chatter about a G-Unit reunion possibly going down and explained why he has little to no interest in providing a life preserver to any estranged group members.
In Fif's opinion, he views reunion talk as a ploy to generate interest after failing to do so on your own.
"Probably not," Fif said when asked if fans can expect to see a Unit reunion. "I don't know. You have people who go in different directions. If you have grown men involved in business transactions or are around each other, surrounded by the same thing, I've offered everything that I can offer to G-Unit. I allowed them to be in front of my audience the entire time, to develop their own fan base, to have people recognize their attributes and their defects at that point. What do you do? I don't care what other people want. I could give a f*ck what they want. A reunion? You can kiss my motherf*cking a** as far as that's concerned. I think when you get to the point when you want something, the public is saying something, it's a trend, it's an idea that someone had and that other people are following. When did it dissolve? It dissolved as when they didn't start to support the projects. ... I think the concept of reunions come from artists that have decided to not be under me, they realize how hard it is away from me, when you get to the point where you're not generating any interest any more and your records and coming and going so fast, you don't matter as much. You go, 'We need to do a reunion.'" (Sirius Hip-Hop Nation)
Just last week, ex-member Game's manager Taydoe spoke on trying to get his client and Fif back on speaking terms to make a reunion possible.
"I can't say it'll happen, I can't it won't happen, however, from a business perspective, I'm gonna attempt to make it happen," Tay said in an interview, referring to a G-Unit reunion including Game. "I think it'll be a wise business move on both parts. I'm thinking about tours, I'm thinking about merchandise, I'm thinking about all these other things that's lacking in the industry, and this is the perfect timing for that." (WSJ Live)
A few weeks ago, Fif revealed his initial interest in trying to at least get a G-Unit record together for the fans.
And, he says, there's a good chance of a reunion with G-Unit partners Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo. "People grow in different directions," 50 Cent says. "[They] have different agendas about things they want to do and they're sorting themselves out in that way and I'm focused on things that are important to me right now, but there's a strong possibility there will be a G-Unit [collaboration] with the three of us. But right now, I'm focused on my solo project." (Billboard Biz)
Last November, G-Unit's DJ Whoo Kid talked about trying to reunite 50 and estranged member Lloyd Banks.
"I mean I don't even know man, I tried to like talk to them. Fif says he hasn't heard from him, I don't know man. They're supposed to be cool, I don't think there are any major problems. From what I know, they're cool. They were all at Chris Lighty's funeral. You will hear it from him (50). He will give you the view points on Banks and the whole situation with the Unit. But from what I know, they're cool. But 50 will let you know and explains the situation better." (HHNM)
