New York rap star 50 Cent has finally come forward to shed some light on dicey comments shot at G-Unit from estranged group member and longtime pal Tony Yayo.
In Fif’s opinion, frustration and anger may have contributed to Yayo’s publicized remarks.
“I had a wonderful journey with the people I grew up with. I think the frustration comes from shock, probably, that it’s not everything they wanted it to be,” he says of Yayo’s comments. “Him of all people… It’s not a secret, it’s a known fact that he actually came home form jail with a million dollars and a Bentley. Like, ‘What do you want?'” “These guys are millionaires. They’ve made millions of dollars. Why do that then? Whenever there’s no one to blame, you know what game you play, [for] a look. I don’t know what the goal was,” he continues, also saying that he hasn’t communicated with G-Unit former and current members. (Billboard)
Despite the disses, 50 has maintained his focus is on the future.
The ordeal “doesn’t affect my life,” 50 Cent says. “I don’t believe in looking back. I can care less about things that’s happened in the past. I’m looking forward, at prosperity.” “I’ve learned: The same person that tells you’re a piece of shit tells you they love you when the right song comes out. ‘My man, 50 back.’ So you can’t be affected by ‘I hate you’ because it won’t allow for something good to come in.” (Billboard)
According to reports, the “Talk of New York” turned his back on the Unit sometime last month.
Throughout the years, 50 Cent has had issues with almost every member of G-Unit, including Young Buck and Lloyd Banks. Now Yayo, the one that many thought would stick through thick and thin, also isn’t on the best terms with Curtis. “50 ain’t rocking with me and Banks the same. I layed my life down for the unit but you live and you learn,” quipped Yayo. “Too much stress. I flew the world already. Dropped an album. Time to try new things and the Unit not together. F*ck it.” (VIBE)
The rap veteran posted Twitter remarks about disloyalty around mid-February.
“It’s funny how things and people change where all my so call freinds go.,” Yayo tweeted February 19.
“Loyalty get you nowhere in life it’s better to be a snake you’ll get further trust me .” (Tony Yayo’s Twitter)
