G-Unit/Rida Gang's Kidd Kidd recently shared his take on the decline of the brand rap mogul 50 Cent created in the early 2000's and what he can bring to the table to reignite its prominence.
In Kidd's perspective, he wants to make sure fans have endless amounts of music much like G-Unit used to shell out during their strong mixtape runs a decade ago.
"Just by giving fans real music, like the old G-Unit used to. When Fif came, he made such an impact by giving you real music, real stories," Kidd Kidd said when asked what he can do to help make G-Unit hot again. "When he rapped, he was telling stories about what's going on in his neighborhood. It was like roll with him or get rolled over. It's the same thing with me -- when I'm rapping, I give you stories about what's going on with me and what's happening in my neighborhood. I want to bring back the essence of the old G-Unit era. But it's new times now, I have my own moment, the Rida Gang movement. I just want to work hard and start from the ground up." (HHNM)
Kidd also detailed his distanced relationship with former G-Unit executive Sha Money XL.
"Nah, after the Reallionaire project, I just haven't talked to Sha. I tried to reach out to him and let him know that me and Fif was doing business. Like I'm a real dude, I don't do snake sh*t. But I didn't get a response back. So I'm not going to just sit around. He was busy too, with Big K.R.I.T. and few others. So we just moved on. I still wish him most success. I ran into him a couple of times at events but haven't spoken to him. There are no hard feelings though, it's just industry sh*t. This ain't no real beef. I know what real beef is -- I've been shot 6 times so it's all good." (HHNM)
Back in January, G-Unit general 50 Cent and Tony Yayo were spotted performing together in Puerto Rico.
50 Cent and his G-Unit compadres return today with something new for our viewing pleasures. The fellas recently took a trip down to Puerto Rico for an impromptu, surprise performance in the island nation. Before the fellas hit the stage they allow us to ride shotgun as they ride around the island checking out hot spots, females, and more. Before you know it, 50, Yayo, and the rest of the Unit hit the stage to give the PR fans exactly what they wanted, a dope show packed full of many of their hits. (Stupid Dope)
Over the fall, G-Unit's DJ Whoo Kid talked about trying to reunite 50 and estranged group 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)
