(AllHipHop News) The only thing 50 Cent and G-Unit have more of than money are opinions. During an upcoming G-Unit Reunion special on SiriusXM, the Unit explains Nicki Minaj’s return to urban radio, Bobby Schmurda’s “Hot N*gga” and more.
One of the most surprising transformations of this year is Nicki Minaj from multi-colored wigs to her natural look. According to 50 Cent, Nicki’s recent remixes on street singles such as “Chiraq”, “No Flex Zone” and her own single “Looking A*s N*gga” are a result of her being placed in the “ni*ga section”:
It’s going to change. They going to put you back in the ‘ni*ga section’. Trust me, you can be hot as a motherf*cker and then eventually they’ll put you back and you’ll find yourself at Urban Radio fighting your way into Top 20 crossover radio. You see it over and over. You see Nicki [Minaj] come from Barbie to being like ‘you a hitta a*s n*gga, n*gga, n*gga.’
Bobby Schmurda’s breakout single “Hot N*gga” gained an extra source of notoriety when it was revealed that the beat used for the song was originally Lloyd Banks’ “Jackpot” While Banks says he is ok with the success of “Hot N*gga” because “I’m secure in where I’m at.” 50 Cent had a different take on Schmurda’s success, comparing him to the recently independent Trinidad James:
I think he needs work. The artist needs work. It’s like the Trinidad James thing. When a guy doesn’t actually have song structure. [Banks-It’s not like he knew it was going to happen.] Nah, he just did the dance. Then when I looked at it, it felt like Diddy. It felt like [Micheal Jackson] a little bit in that “Remember The Time” video.
G-Unit’s upcoming EP does not have a release date as of yet.
