New York rapper 50 Cent and his reunited G-Unit are back at it with the release of their newest group offering, “Come Up.” #onthecomeup
The unexpected track premiered Monday (July 28) and features production from Dot n Pro.
The track has the old mob/gangster vibe that 50 Cent and G-Unit have provided fans in their earlier years. 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks stand out as the top verses on the track with Young Buck and Kidd Kidd coming in close and Tony Yayo trailing. The group has finally taken a break from the freestyles to bring some original hits our way. (Empty Lighthouse)
Instead of holding any grudges, ex-member Game recently admitted he could only applaud Fif’s reuniting effort.
“I saw the picture and really instantly thought that that was cool of him with all the money he got because he don’t need music no more to give [Lloyd] Banks, [Tony] Yayo and definitely [Young] Buck ’cause that’s my partner, the chance to go back out there and do shows, make money. G-Unit, the name, will pack a building. They get to split that up and that was my first and only thought on it.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
He also briefly reflected on being a part of the Unit a decade ago.
“At this point in my career, I think when G-Unit was at its strongest point I was a member of it and we did what we did and I think that we moved on from that,” Game added. “They’re doing their thing and I’m good.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
Reunited group member Young Buck promised the Unit was back in full effect earlier this month.
“It’s a good look,” Buck told DJ Whoo Kid. “First and foremost, it ain’t no bullsh*t about a check. You know what I’m saying? From the very beginning, 50’s always been the big brother. You know what I’m saying? And you know, sh*t happens and that’s what happened. But real sh*t always makes yourself [stronger and stay] together in some kind of way. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and sometimes it do but if it’s real, it’s always gonna be there and that’s what it was. … We moving my n*gga. G-Unit my n*gga. That’s what it’s been.” (“Whoolywood Shuffle”)
