50 Cent Explains Why G-Unit Is "Going To Work Like We Need A Record Deal" (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) 50 Cent seems to be doing more than reviving the old G-Unit name. In a recent interview, 50 Cent discussed the progress of the upcoming G-Unit album and the strategy for the

Over the last month, G-Unit has been reviving their old tactics from the early 2000’s  by releasing remixes on other artists’ songs. According to the G-Unit captain, those songs are a part of a larger strategy which includes the Unit working as if they were unsigned:

We just getting back to how we did it in the very beginning. We going to start over and work like we need a record deal. We just continue to put music out. While we’re putting that music out, we’re making the coolest original content and letting that be there for the actual album. But, there will be a full tape that comes out before that.

G-Unit’s previous albums, Beg for Mercy and Terminate on Sight were developed around one defining song, claims 50. While that song for the new G-Unit album has not been made as of yet, the competitive spirit and time a part has led to no shortage of content to choose from:

Creatively everyone kind of keeps up with each other. They don’t want to be left behind [so] they’ll give you something that they had if they don’t actually come up with it on the spot right there. It’s so much content. They’ve written a lot of music away from me. So I don’t know what portions of what they coming up with is what they JUST came up with or something that they had an idea and been working with for a while. But it’s all up to standards.

Check out 50 Cent’s full interview with MTV below:

  • walkerboy86

    G-Unit is what hip hop is missing.

  • IceBergSlim

    I can’t see it …lmao..it’s ten years later

    • GP

      I mean you could be right but them three songs they got out some fiya cant lie about that .

      • dre

        they talked about jesus is the best song iv heard in years. young buck sound so good and banks still has dope lyrics. yayo was quite good on that song aswell. 50 isnt even on it and it was still a banger.

      • GP

        right, but im sure everybody knows buck the hardest in the unit, banks got that laid back smooth flow, yayo the hypeman with a flow and 50 got flow but he’s a hook king.

      • dre

        i agree. i think banks is the most lyrical but i still like buck more than everyone else. buck has a distinctive southern tone in his voice and his flow is dope. especially on the new g-unit tracks. i always thought buck had the best verses on beg for mercy.

      • GP

        he did dre. beg for mercy buck damn near did the whole album himself, esp on that lay you down track, buck went ape shit on that track

      • El Dogga

        Yeah that song is a banger! I would’ve kept that for the album….I’m waiting for the video for that one!

  • Killuminati

    bring back the g unit radio mixtapes!!!!!!!

  • foshow38

    If the whole mixtape is knocking like the three songs they have out it’s gonna be Ill…GGGG-Unit!!
    “They talked about Jesus”
    “Nah I’m Talking about”
    “Real Quick”

    • dre

      they have another new song out called ordinary

      • Killuminati

        i like em all but that one

      • dre

        they supposed to be dropping a new track today

      • Killuminati

        i was just thinkin its been a week since they dropped a track too lol….im ready drop that shit !!!!!!!!

  • GP

    I mean the songs the got out spreading like wildfires, but the unit going have to kept it trill, I just wish all these old groups link back up, the hot boys minus bg, the whole rockafella dipset, trill fam, etc.

    • Killuminati

      i thought the dips were gettin back together??????? cam had posted some pics from a “dip set” video shoot like 2 months ago on IG

      • GP

        that could be tru I didn’t see that, but the got a dipset show in dc tonight so maybe they back together. but does that mean j-r 40 cal and hell rell back too?

      • Killuminati

        idk man 40 and rell was the truth…but the last 2 40 cal mixtapes he had no bars and was calling hisself the “PLG” Punch line god….which to me sounded like he was biting of banks the PLK…and rell last mixtape was ok…them 2 are better in a group….and JR locked up

      • GP

        yea hell rell go hard fo sure that for the hell of it was smoking. hell rell should join the unit, lol naw, but hell rell should be with major deal, to this day I never heard a weak hell rell verse or song not saying he hasn’t made any weak songs. 40 cal was sharp but I think he got lost in the sauce when they started to break up, I hurd jr dicking folks getting booked for shows and not showing up

      • Killuminati

        lol rell in the unit would be dope …. i think with yayo tryin to get 50 to sign remy ma that her and papoose would be a good look for the unit….and 40 cals 2 mixtapes with the dips were nuts…his song concepts were on another level

      • Guest

        dipset already got back together it just wasnt as hype as g-unit

      • Killuminati

        well they need to hype that shit…maybe then jimmy jones wouldnt be asking tyrese if he could be his flunky lol

      • Obi Won

        I thought Dip Set got back to gether to tour, but not new material

    • Guest

      g-unit still look the part. wayne look gay as fcuk now compared to when he was in the hot boys. they would need to call themselves the gay boys now lol

      • IceBergSlim

        lol..Right..That bamma be wearing skateboard gear ..That’s that bammas swag and he said it’s fly..man get your country ass outta here where they do that @

  • IROC

    I don’t think g unit can return to its glory days way to much time has past

    • Killuminati

      we will see…50 needs to keep them workin…and this time scout some new talent thats worth the money…not like hot rod and dont sign no groups like mop mobb deep

    • Guest

      50 was selling 10 million records per album back then and beg for mercy sold about 5 million worldwide. nobody is doing numbers like that right now so they dont need to be as big as before to be successful.

  • Seem like 50 cent been reading my comments….I’ve always said that most rappers who become rich and famous begin to get lazy and loose the hunger….I think most rappers should at like they are hungry again just to push out some quality music…I also think that 50 should get all new members consisting of younger, unsigned artists. It shouldn’t be hard for 50 to go back to NYC an recruit some new fresh faces.

    • Killuminati

      you must have been readin my comments previously on this page lol

    • RealSpit

      “Seems like 50 cents been reading my comment” Lol… You sound like a fuking stan

      • I have been saying it all along…..What you don’t think these artists read comments that are posted online just like the rest of us?

  • IceBergSlim

    Even though I lost my desire to here 50 cent rap anymore. I do respect his hustle and I think he is a real cat on them streets but it will take a lot for me to go out and buy his cd. He gots to put out some serious fire

  • Obi Won

    “It’s so much content. They’ve written a lot of music away from me.”
    That sounds like hunger to me. Glad the Unit was able to come together so easily. It seemed like they were baiting everyone until Buck got out.

    • Eric Cartman

      He shouldn’t have dissed fat joe and d-block for their album sales being only a portion of his album sales.. HOWEVER, times have changed and if sheek louch drops an album right now, it’ll still be a small portion of animal ambition sales.. ya bish

      • hoeyuno

        The LOX are back though and there sounding ill!!! Gunit/dblock album!!!!!???

      • Eric Cartman

        Maybe mixtape, that’d be like 7 guys on one song haha

  • RealSpit

    They should change their group name to the brickUnit!! I remember 50 and his stans used to laugh at niggas albums bricking and talk slick about rappers going independent like Camron. Now that this nigga album brick and he had to go independent because he fail off him and his stans are making excuses. This B(rick)-Unit album should sell 15k out the gate. Your boy is done stans!!
