West Coast rapper Game’s fans are reportedly showing how much they want to see him hook back up with music rival 50 Cent, storming his Facebook page with G-Unit reunion petition posts.
According to reports, there is even a G-Unit reunion website page for fans to rally on.
The Game is taking his hope for a G-Unit reunion very seriously. The Compton rapper has been promoting a petition to get the old musical gang back together again. Maybe. Numerous post have been made to the “Hate It Or Love It” rapper’s official Facebook promotion the petition, including: Is there a G Unit Reunion gonna happen in 2013??? Let’s see how many signatures we get! Vote here www.GUnitReunion.com However, there are no such messages on Game’s Twitter account. At the time of this post, the petition has over 5,500 signatures. It hopes all the fan support will urge the entire G-Unit collective–50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and the Game–to “make it happen.” (HHW)
The petition suggests a full G-Unit reunion would help the estranged group members once again take over the rap game.
G-Unit is an American hip hop group originating from New York City formed by East Coast rappers 50 Cent , Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, Dirty South rapper Young Buck along with West Coast Rapper The Game. The name of the group is short for Guerilla Unit. They delivered some of the best hip hop songs the world has ever heard, since then the group have collapsed with both The Game & Young Buck no longer part of this once heavyweight group. It’s about time we gave the world what they want, a ‘Reunion’, there is no doubt that if the group reformed they would smash their way to the top again. (G-Unit Reunion)
This week, G-Unit’s Tony Yayo expressed his problems with Game.
“My problem with [Game] is that once he got to the point where he wanted to be, when he sold 5 million records, it was G-Unot,” he said. “So it’s like why would you want a reunion now if you want to be the guy to bring down the brand and the name. … When we were broke, and we didn’t have a pot to piss in, we were all callin’ each other’s phones and that’s the thing that just upsets me the most, and it makes me just want to say, ‘F— rap’ … Loyalty is my biggest thing. 50 helped all of us eat. We all had mansions; we all had Bentleys; so if Fif is in a bad mood or feels a certain way that day, you just eat that. You learn to judge your friends for who they are.” (MTV)
Recently, 50 Cent downplayed the impact a G-Unit reunion could have.
“Probably not,” Fif said when asked if fans can expect to see a Unit reunion. “I don’t know. You have people who go in different directions. If you have grown men involved in business transactions or are around each other, surrounded by the same thing, I’ve offered everything that I can offer to G-Unit. I allowed them to be in front of my audience the entire time, to develop their own fan base, to have people recognize their attributes and their defects at that point. What do you do? I don’t care what other people want. I could give a f*ck what they want. A reunion? You can kiss my motherf*cking a** as far as that’s concerned. I think when you get to the point when you want something, the public is saying something, it’s a trend, it’s an idea that someone had and that other people are following. When did it dissolve? It dissolved as when they didn’t start to support the projects. … I think the concept of reunions come from artists that have decided to not be under me, they realize how hard it is away from me, when you get to the point where you’re not generating any interest any more and your records and coming and going so fast, you don’t matter as much. You go, ‘We need to do a reunion.'” (Sirius Hip-Hop Nation)
