New York rapper Lloyd Banks has responded to former G-Unit member Game wanting to reunite with 50 Cent and once again takeover the rap industry.
Banks believes the window of opportunity has passed for Game to ask for a reunion.
“I always catch wind of what’s going on and somebody brought my attention to it, I saw it on Twitter but I don’t really got too much negative to say about the situation because I’ve dedicated so much time to myself, to get somebody else attention due to negativity but what I can say is we did that dance already,” Banks said in an interview with radio host Suava. “We did that dance where we formed the group G-Unit to establish ourselves as solo artists and I think it’s time for us to pay 50 [Cent] back. It’s reverse now. I’m out here trying to better myself as an individual so that when we do form the monster known as the group G-Unit, it’ll be that much easier on us. So, if anything, that situation would be going backwards. It’s too late to cry over spilled milk. I would be interested to see if those same attempts to reach out to 50 Cent would be happening if he had a number one record on the radio.” (Hot 105.5)
Yesterday, Game got on Twitter and attempted to reach out to 50.
“@50cent Aye n*gga, get on twitter & let’s get this sh*t movin !!! G-G-G-G- well, you know the rest. @50cent All it take is “ONE PHONE CALL” !

Following the tweets, 50 hopped on Twitter to respond.
“whos is he talking about?,” 50 tweeted.
“what are you guys talking about i dont talk to game i have had no communication whit him in years.” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Last month, Banks analyzed Game’s past requests to join his old camp.
“I mean, G-Unit is in tact,” Banks told DJ Vlad in an interview after being asked about a reunion. “At the end of the day, man, Game, he knows. He knows the history the same way we do. We all know what was said, the actions that were took. Some things you don’g get passed, you know what I’m saying? At this point on, I’m really not concerned with it. I’m just pushing what Banks gotta do, getting my brand going. I mean, if everything’s gravy, you wouldn’t hear those possibilities come up. If everything was going on, and platinum albums and selling them on their own and all that sh*t, the last thing you would hear is a peace treaty…It’s only so long you can stand off the hype of somebody else. That’s like the whole thing when everybody was saying G-Unit this, G-Unit that, G-Unit ain’t relevant. How the f*ck does somebody tell you that. You’re not supposed to hear that. If you heard that I’m not relevant, that means I’m well, live, relevant. They’re talking about me…” (Vlad TV)
