(AllHipHop News) Throughout Nicki Minaj’s career the Queens native has been associated with Big Fendi’s Dirty Money, Gucci Mane’s Brick Squad, and Lil Wayne’s Young Money, but there were also rumors that she was close to being part of 50 Cent’s G-Unit.

G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Young Buck discussed the “Anaconda” performer almost joining the label during an interview with Jenny Boom Boom. The crew were asked if it was true that the Unit was not interested in signing Nicki.
“Nah, if anything, it never would have came from me,” said Banks about Minaj being passed over.
“I know I definitely wouldn’t have said that,” added Buck.
Jenny then mentioned that Nicki supposedly auditioned for 50 at one point. Neither rapper confirmed that was true, but Buck and Banks did respond to the speculation.
“I don’t remember that,” claimed Banks.
“If that did happen, and I wasn’t there then I feel like, ‘Yo Fif. Come on bruh. You at least could have let me be there,'” Buck stated.
