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