50 Cent is not only getting the band back together, he's pushing back his solo album so he can drop an EP with G-Unit ASAP.
Things haven't always been so rosy between Fif and his compadres Young Buck, Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks. In fact, in April the MC declared G-Unit had been dismantlement. But when the crew performed together for New York's Summer Jam in June, 50 began to have a change of heart. Now he is so focused on putting out the EP "The Beast Is G-Unit" that he is pushing back the release of his solo album Street King Immortal until 2015 to work on it.
"I didn't want to lose the momentum connected with everyone being back together," Fiddy told Rolling Stone.
And what caused the change of heart?
"My interest wasn't there for a while," 50 told Rolling Stone. "It took for Yayo to say things publicly to me that I didn't understand [at the time] for me to reevaluate everything. I did so much for them that he didn't have reasoning for it. It's not that I have a problem with them, but I know, when I assess everything that's happened overall in my life, some people have developed unbelievable senses of entitlement.
"With the guys, at points, people are extremely loyal to their comfort more than their loyalty to their friendship with you and a lot of times, people will take their feelings out on someone who's close to them," he continues. "So the person who loves you will do something wrong to you and say, 'I'm sorry, you know I love you.' Then I'd rather hang out with people who don't love me."
We detect a good chunk of passive aggressiveness in that statement, but you can unwind it how you will.
Do you prefer 50 as solo artist or with his G-Unit Boys?
