50 Cent wants to erase G-Unit from his history.
Despite their success as a group, the rap mogul says he isn’t interested in revisiting that chapter of his career. In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid (via Complex), 50 revealed that there are no plans to develop a biopic around the East Coast rap group that originally consisted of him, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo. In fact, he’d like to forget them completely.
“I don’t care to do that,” Fif told Whoo Kid when asked about a possible G-Unit film. “I’d like to forget the G-Unit.”
He brought up Kendrick Lamar as an example. “Kendrick don’t even let them boys come on his stage when he perform,” he said, possibly referring to Black Hippy or TDE. “Yo, I could have did that! What the f**k I’m bringing these dirty ni**as on the stage for? I could have did it like Kendrick, dolo!”
While their story would make for a captivating movie, it’s unlikely that 50 will give it the green light. He and his former bandmates have not seen eye to eye for years.
In 2008, 50 kicked Young Buck out of the group, claiming he had been “unloyal” to G-Unit. The two have traded shots and even diss tracks in recent years. Both Lloyd Banks and Kidd Kidd left the group in 2018. The Game joined G-Unit in 2003, but he was removed two years later, leaving 50 and Yayo as the only remaining members.
After releasing a string of mixtapes in the early 2000s, the group dropped two major-label albums, 2003’s Beg for Mercy and 2008’s T.O.S. (Terminate On Sight). In 2015, they reunited for their independent EP The Beast Is G Unit.
