New York rap star 50 Cent and G-Unit are not slowing down after reuniting last weekend at Hot 97’s Summer Jam with the release of their new “Real Quick” song. #RealQuick
The Unit jumped onto Young Money stud Drake’s new “0 to 100” anthem with their latest record.
Just days after surprising the world with their reunion at Hot 97?s Summer Jam concert, G-Unit have become the first group in rap to hop on Drake’s “0 To 100” and make it their own. “Real Quick” borrows what I would call the ‘title bars’ from Drake’s latest viral hit for a five minute reintroduction to one of the mid-2000s greatest collectives. It’s got solid verses across the board, and its structure is one I am sure many emcees will borrow in the months ahead. (Under The Gun Review)
This week, music producer/rapper Hit-Boy reacted to 50 remixing his “Grindin’ My Whole Life” record.
“We really just seen that on the ride over to this office here,” Hit-Boy told MTV News on Monday, just hours before the song dropped. “50, it sounded like he was gassin’ it, so I’m excited. We really just appreciative to be in the game, man. We been working for a long time. ‘Grindin’ My Whole Life’ ain’t just a song. We really been trying to get to it for a long time, so for people to be taking notice is a blessing.” (MTV)
Audio Push’s Pricetag also spoke on 50 taking over their catchy track.
Audio Push, who are also in HS87 and on the original track, were similarly enthused. “50, he’s still a rapper; he’s still hip-hop,” said Price, one half of the duo. “If he hears somethin’ he like, he probably just rapping on it, you feel me. Which is hard.” (MTV)
The Unit and 50 protégé Kidd Kidd‘s new “Nah, I’m Talkin ‘Bout” premiered online Monday (June 2).
Da Unit is back. A day after reuniting onstage at Summer Jam, all four members of G-Unit come together on their first song in six years. 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and Tony Yayo put aside their differences and get back to business on “Nah I’m Talking ‘Bout,” a remix to Hit-Boy and HS87’s “Grindin’ My Whole Life,” which also features Kidd Kidd.
