50 Cent Addresses G-Unit Reunion & Relationship With Game
G-Unit's status as a Hip Hop collective is up in the air as neither they nor 50 Cent have released a studio album in almost five years.
In a recent interview with Complex, the Queens native addressed his group and says there needs to be better cooperation for any possible future work to happen.
"G-Unit is something that I built, with the momentum of 50 Cent and the music I created," 50 Cent said when asked about G-Unit. "They had the opportunities. The object was to grow it outside from the people that was around me, but people change and won’t stay the same. As relationships grow older, everyone is off into their own little things."
