When The Game left G-Unit, he started mocking 50 Cent's group by using the phrase G-Unot.
Then he stopped using the phrase.
During Game's stop on the Up In Smoke podcast, he claimed 50 Cent and music exec Jimmy Iovine, who recently snubbed Game at a Lakers game, paid him seven figures to stop saying G-Unot.
“A lot of people don’t know this,” he began. “50 and Jimmy Iovine gave me a million dollars to stop saying G-Unot. They wrote me a check, they bought it. I had to trademark the G-Unot. And you remember when I was going around with the rat and doing all that shit, that shit killed G-Unit!”
He added, “You stopped seeing the candy cane tank tops and all that shit. All that, the whole G-Unit Mark Ecko, all the shoes, all that sh*t died. That sh*t was a hot commodity at once, G-Unit clothing. N*ggas was wearing the sweats, headbands, the masks, everything. That sh*t died, bro. So they had to pay me. I should have asked for more but them n*ggas gave me a million. But I’m a hood n*gga, a million dollars to stop saying this word?! Where the check? They wrote the check and I stopped saying it.”
Do you think that is what happened?
