Wednesday, Jun 18, 2014 11:00AM
G-Unit leader 50 Cent has called up the clique of Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and Tony Yayo for their first music video in years with the new "Nah I'm Talkin' 'Bout." #TheUnit
The collective unleashed the new visual Tuesday (June 17) night.
The weeks since the G-Unit reunion has brought us a number of firsts. There was their first appearance together, at Hot 97?s Summer Jam. And then their first new track, just a day later. On Monday, we got their first non-remix, with "They Talked About Jesus." And now we're getting their first music video. Fittingly, the Unit takes the first song they dropped, "Nah I'm Talkin' 'Bout" (a remix of HS-87?s "Grindin' My Whole Life"), and give it the visual treatment. 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and Kidd Kidd mean mug in a warehouse-looking setting as they recapture a feeling of yesteryear.

Following a weekend performance in New York, the Unit made sure to treat fans to new music this week.
After warming up with their Hit-Boy and Drake remixes, G-Unit drops the original song "They Talked About Jesus." Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and Tony Yayo (50 Cent is M.I.A.) take aim at their haters on the George Getson-produced track, which they dedicate to "all non-believers." "Somebody called and said the rap game needs us," raps Buck. (Rap-Up)
Fif announced plans to release new music a few days ago.
"New music coming this week.check out episode2 #power," Fif captioned June 15 to a photo of himself and G-Unit. (50 Cent's Instagram)
The Unit leader, Kidd Kidd, Banks, Buck and Yayo all united on their recently released "Ordinary N*gga."
G-Unit continues to jack the instrumentals, grabbing Trey Songz and Jeezy's "Ordinary N***a" for their latest remix. 50 Cent is back on his lyrical assault on the remix, floating over the R&B production like he has done so many times in his career. The rest of the crew then comes through to dismantle the remainder of the beat. We sure are loving this G-Unit resurgence in 2014. (Complex)
