50 Cent Discusses G-Unit Regrets
50 Cent says that he would construct G-Unit differently if he was able to build his crew with Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and Kidd Kidd again.
"I wouldn't have built something that required me as their center,” 50 Cent says during an interview with Rolling Stone. "I would've built it so it functions on its own. When you look at it, they've sold millions of records on their own. If they weren't so strongly associated [with G-Unit], they'd probably have crews under them. They didn't really have an interest in doing that because they [already] had a strong association and had so much fun in the position they were in at that point.”
The G-Unit is slated to release its The Beast Is G-Unit EP later this year, which is why 50 Cent says he pushed back his own Street King Immortal album until 2015.
"I didn't want to lose the momentum connected with everyone being back together,” he says.
The group’s extended hiatus came once 50 Cent became disillusioned with the other members of the group.
"My interest wasn't there for a while," 50 says during the Rolling Stone interview. "It took for Yayo to say things publicly to me that I didn't understand [at the time] for me to reevaluate everything. I did so much for them that he didn't have reasoning for it. It's not that I have a problem with them, but I know, when I assess everything that's happened overall in my life, some people have developed unbelievable senses of entitlement.”
