50 Cent is flooding it
A month ago, 50 Cent was prepping to put out his comeback album, Animal Ambition. Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo were “Troy Ave‘s hypemen” as per several of 50 Cent’s Animal Ambition press run radio interviews, Young Buck was still 50 Cent’s arch-enemy, and for all intents and purposes, G-Unit was not a “thing” anymore.
Just over three weeks later, after performances at Summer Jam, NYC’s CitiField, Webster Hall, and a slew of other records and remixes, G-Unit is back in a big way, and they’ve announced not only that they’ve patched up their differences to form like Voltron, but they’ll be releasing an album in November.
Today, 50 Cent took to Jenny Boom Boom‘s Hot 97.3 show to announce that prior to the album, they’ll be releasing a mixtape. The original squad of four, plus the addition of 50’s protege, Kidd Kidd, have released three records thus far, two remixes–they remixed HS87‘s “Grindin’ My Whole LIfe” and Drake‘s “0-100”–and a solo record called “They Talked About Jesus”. The word Fif used to describe the time frame for the G-Unit tape was “near future”, and we know that could literally mean tomorrow morning in the Beyonce era, so keep your eyes wide open for new music from the quartet.
You can watch the full interview below, in which 50 also talked briefly about The Game, who has been especially vocal as of late. See: “Bigger Than Me”.
Khari thinks “Loyal” is more important than the National Anthem, and you can find him on Twitter (kingvangogh).
