G-Unit’s DJ Whoo Kid recently discussed the status of 50 Cent‘s crew and revealed how much effort he put into getting the Forbes frontman to chop it up with estranged group member Lloyd Banks.
Rather than pick sides, Whoo Kid said the internal conflict is not as major as many fans might think.
“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)
Back in September, 50 Cent updated fans on his relationship status with the Unit.
“I see [Tony] Yayo all the time. He actually comes through — he’ll pop up. We’ll do that, but away from it when we come home I be busy working on something and they supposed to be doing the music, writing the music,” 50 told Ang. “Now it’s like I think I’ve enabled them. I’ve damaged that by being so close to it that they just go. Their way of dealing with things is not dealing with it so you can have people that work for you who you work for because they’re just waiting for you to do it. Or you don’t say anything and there’s no urgency — I don’t talk to them. We’re still friends, it’s just the relationship is different. We grown – the issues came up where that they feel like it’s hard for them to be the man while I’m around.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
A month prior, Tony Yayo addressed controversial Fif remarks and denied having any tensions toward him.
“Who started Gunit me that’s who.,” he tweeted August 12th.
“Why would I blow shots at 50 the media want see Gunit fail so bad we won to much in front of n*ggas everybody running with our format.” (Tony Yayo’s Twitter)
Back in May, the rap executive revealed he had not talked to Banks in nearly a year.
“He goes through these things where there’s no communication and he goes off and does what he wants, it’s set at that point because I’ve spent marketing dollars so he can go wherever he wants to go and actually go do shows, make money and do other things,” 50 told radio host Big Boy. “At that point, it’s fine for him to move around and go do it by himself. I want them to be individuals and operate on their own away from me, I’m fine with it. … We can get on the phone together, but I haven’t spoken to him. I haven’t spoken to Banks in nine months. But this is not the first time this has happened. He’s a baby. He’s the youngest in the actual G-Unit, he got really rich at 19. Both him and Tony [Yayo] have made over nine million dollars. With [Young] Buck, it was almost eight million dollars.” (Power 106)
