With hip-hop groups trying to come back together like Mobb Deep and G-Unit, West Coast rap veteran WC recently spoke to SOHH about possibly reuniting with his West Side Connection pals Ice Cube and Mack 10.
While he still maintains close-knit relationships with both California vets, WC admitted he is not the driving force behind whether or not fans will ever see Westside Connect link back up.
“The whole world would love to see that reunion go down,” WC told SOHH about a long-awaited West Side Connection reunion. “Sh*t, I would love to see it. I would love to see us out there putting it down and doing stuff like that but I can’t pull a rabbit out the hat and I’m good with Cube. That’s my n*gga, man, until the wheels fall off. And I’m good with Mack, so, it is what it is. Cube’s the one that’s got my back and whatever he wants to do, I’ll do.” (SOHH)
Back in 2010, Mack 10 revealed what may have tore the threesome apart.
Many have debated about what the feud between Mack and Cube was over, but both artists have never clearly explained their beef. All we’ve heard is that it was over an argument between Mack’s people and a member of Cube’s family. The Inglewood rapper confirmed rumors, but even to this day, says he doesn’t understand how Cube could break up the Westside Connection trio over it. “I didn’t do anything to him and he didn’t do anything to me. We had an argument and I guess it was taken the wrong way because his wife was present,” Mack 10 explained. “If she wasn’t there, we would probably still be doing records. His brother-in-law was disrespectful in a certain way …” (Baller Status)
Recently, reports of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy and Havoc reuniting heated up the Internet.
It’s official: hip-hop duo Mobb Deep’s putting their beef on the back burner … and officially heading out on a 20th anniversary tour later this spring … TMZ has learned. The duo — a.k.a. Havoc and Prodigy — were entwined in an intense rap feud ever since Havoc tore into Prodigy on Twitter … claiming among other things that Prodigy had engaged in a slew of jailhouse relationships during his 3-year stint in the slammer. But now, the two rappers have let bygones be bygones … and recently announced they’re headed back on the road together. First stop? The Paid Dues festival in L.A. this March. Sources close to the group say it’s just the first of many shows — and will act as the unofficial kickoff for their April world tour … where they’ll be celebrating 20 years as a group. (TMZ)
Last week, G-Unit’s DJ Whoo Kid weighed in on estranged group members 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo possibly hooking up again.
“If there is a reunion, it’ll just be like Yayo, Banks and Fif,” Whoo Kid said in an interview with DJ Drama. “It will never be [Young] Buck and it will never be Game. It will never be like the added accessories that we had, the little Voltron sh*t. It would be like Voltron with one leg missing. I don’t know, but it would definitely be the original three.” (Shade 45)
