West Coast rapper Game has taken shots at former labelmate Tony Yayo in light of the perceived turmoil between 50 Cent and estranged G-Unit members.
Game, who spent time in G-Unit from 2003 to 2005, poked fun at the “Talk of New York” by re-tweeting one of his weekend Twitter remarks.
“RT @TonyYayo: Who started Gunit me thats who. – uh oh, 50 gone cut off yo health benefits & stop ya Vitamin water shipments u keep it up lol,” Game re-tweeted and wrote August 11th. (Game’s Twitter)
Earlier in the day, Yayo addressed recent controversial remarks made by Fif.
“Who started Gunit me that’s who.,” he tweeted.
“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)
A few days ago, Fif admitted investing too much time into steering Yayo and Lloyd Banks‘ careers.
“I actually haven’t spoke to ‘em very much. I’m to fault for that, though. I think I disabled them,” Fif revealed in an interview when asked about the rappers. “I did so much for them that they don’t have a continuous work ethic. They got both of those tapes out there, but did you see any visuals? Anything? There’s certain things that the new guy is doing to create momentum or energy. They just sit there and wait. When someone works for you, you have the habit of dealing with things by not dealing with them. You may get in the regimen of coming over and doing it for them.” (XXL Mag)
He also offered his take on them recently putting out new underground projects.
“Dropping mixtapes…that was my ’02 strategy. That’s 2002 marketing. That’s old. You did nothing if you did that. Look what I’ve done with The Lost Tape or The Big 10. There’s videos for everything that was on the tapes. If you’re going to just wing it and drop a mixtape…pick the highlights that people like most and shoot ‘em. Go shoot the video.” (XXL Mag)
