It’s all happening so fast.
5 days ago, 50 Cent couldn’t stand Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and Tony Yayo.
At least, that’s what he led us to believe.
The filthy rich former Interscope Records rapper, whose new album, Animal Ambition, was just released yesterday, spent most of his press run detailing how his former crew members met their demise. He expressed little sympathy, and even laughed about some of the unfortunate situations Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo found themselves in, after they failed to sustain their initial success. However, on Sunday, everything changed. Fif brought G-Unit out for a reunion, and suddenly, all was well in Queens, NY (save Young Buck’s Nashville origins).
Apparently, that wasn’t all for show. In the two days following the reunion, the entire Unit put out two new records–one was a remix of HS87‘s “Grindin’ My Whole Life” and the other re-worked Drake‘s “0-100”, which he ironically released on Sunday during Summer Jam–and today, 50 Cent announced to Good Morning Philadelphia that the gangster rap conglomerate will in fact be releasing a new album “by the end of November”.
Previously, G-Unit has experienced considerable success with their group albums. Their debut album, Beg For Mercy, was released in 2003 and has since been certified 2x platinum. The Unit’s follow-up effort, Terminate On Sight, fared similarly well to Beg For Mercy in its first week on the charts (317,000), and went on to be certified platinum.
