Southern rapper Young Buck recently talked about teaming back up with one-time rap foe 50 Cent and explained why the G-Unit reunion is here for the long haul.
Although the Unit had fallen apart in recent years, Buck Marley promised his band of brothers were built to win for years to come.
“Don’t look for the downfall of G-Unit,” the rapper said. “Cause you’ll be looking for a long God damn time. You understand? But looking for the success of G-Unit you’ll get what you want to see real quick. But looking for the downfall homie you gon’ be stuck…Don’t pray on our downfall or look for it. Look for the success. Look for the good music. Look for the positive energy. And that’s what you gon’ get. Because even if you ain’t looking for it that’s what you gon’ get.” (This Is 50)
Instead of holding any grudges, ex-Unit member Game recently admitted he could only applaud Fif’s reuniting effort.
“I saw the picture and really instantly thought that that was cool of him with all the money he got because he don’t need music no more to give [Lloyd] Banks, [Tony] Yayo and definitely [Young] Buck ’cause that’s my partner, the chance to go back out there and do shows, make money. G-Unit, the name, will pack a building. They get to split that up and that was my first and only thought on it.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
He also briefly reflected on being a part of the Unit a decade ago.
“At this point in my career, I think when G-Unit was at its strongest point I was a member of it and we did what we did and I think that we moved on from that,” Game added. “They’re doing their thing and I’m good.” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
Earlier this summer, Buck promised the Unit was back in full effect.
“It’s a good look,” Buck told DJ Whoo Kid. “First and foremost, it ain’t no bullsh*t about a check. You know what I’m saying? From the very beginning, 50’s always been the big brother. You know what I’m saying? And you know, sh*t happens and that’s what happened. But real sh*t always makes yourself [stronger and stay] together in some kind of way. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and sometimes it do but if it’s real, it’s always gonna be there and that’s what it was. … We moving my n*gga. G-Unit my n*gga. That’s what it’s been.” (“Whoolywood Shuffle”)
