New York heavyweight 50 Cent did the unthinkable last night (June 1) at Hot 97’s Summer Jam by reuniting estranged G-Unit group members Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and ex-affiliate Young Buck. #Reunited
Fif’s one-time rap rival Nas brought out the G-Unit head before the full-fledged reunion went down.
Of all the Summer Jam 2014 surprises thus far, this one is the most monumental. After being brought onto the stage by Nas himself, 50 Cent orchestrated the reunion many people didn’t think would ever happen. Fif was joinded at this year’s show by Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck for a G-Unit reunion. (VIBE)
After performing a few solo tracks, Fif’s crew rapped to some of their early hits.
The G-Unit CEO emerged to “Hate Me Now,” all smiles, clearly basking in the moment, as he ran through hits like “I Get Money,” “What Up Gangsta” and early mixtape cuts. What happened next, however, was truly unexpected (especially considering G-Unit’s very recent public disagreements), but 50 actually managed to get Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and Young Buck on stage for their first joint performance since 2008, hitting tracks like “On Fire,” “So Seductive” and “I Smell P—.” (MTV)
Reports claim a fight sparked during the Unit’s unexpected reunion set.
Tonight’s set included Lloyd Banks & 50 performing “On Fire” together, among a few other G-Unit classics. As noteworthy as the music itself, however, was 50’s chain. Reportedly stolen from Slowbucks backstage just before the show, the accessory was worn by the G-Unit general for the entire set. Curtis and Slowbucks have been at odds due to an ongoing spat involving Fiddy’s son Marquise. A fight reportedly broke out during G-Unit’s set when Slow was refused entry onto the stage. (HNHH)
Fif also posted a reunion photo alongside his Unit family.
“Things go the way I say they go.now I think it’s time we get busy. #smsaudio #animalambitionFollowing,” Fif captioned June 2. (50 Cent’s Instagram)
