G-Unit rappers 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Lloyd Banks hint that more new content is coming soon.
G-Unit returned in full form yesterday, following a reunion on stage at Summer Jam, with a new freestyle over Hit-Boy & HS87's "Grindin' My Whole Life." The track was originally a posse cut from HS87, so there was plenty of space for 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck (and Kidd Kidd) to rap over it.
Following the reunion record's release, the G-Unit crew hit up 50's screening of his new TV show "Starz." So despite all their beefing and public disses to each other, they all seem to be back on good terms. XXL caught up with each rapper and discussed the possibility of a new G-Unit album. According to each, they're just working in the studio at the moment and we'll have to stay tuned, but an album sounds highly likely.
According to Young Buck, "We got no dates, we working. [We] in the studio. Stay tuned." Banks said, "Work in progress. We just put out the new freestyle today. Check it out."
Yayo mentioned their recent fighting, calling it brotherly. "We just sat at the table, and it happened—that’s it," Yayo said referencing how the reunion came together. "It feels good. We’re brothers. There’s nothing we can’t work out. Brothers fight all the time. We just dropped a new record [yesterday]. We working. We just taking it one day at a time."
Finally, the G-Unit leader, 50 Cent promises we can expect more content to come, so an album doesn't sound too unreasonable. "Being able to bring everybody out to actual shows is not difficult for me," Fif said. "I can do it. I have a compass, a moral compass that comes from my corner on 134th Street. We supposed to behave and respond to each other a certain way. We supposed to hustle to eat. We supposed to get what we supposed to get, not have things handed to us because nobody never gave me nothing. It may be my fault for enabling them at points. I expected them to continue to get what they want immediately. And then now having everybody back in the circle, the morale is great. They all ready to work. They been on ice long enough. So now you should expect [something]. You already got something new today. It didn’t take but a few hours after the show. Meltdown, it’s on now. It don’t take as much out of me as it takes for me to create a solo song than to create and participate in a G-unit record. We have so many moving parts on it and everybody got to show up."

[UPDATE: 50 Cent Announces New G-Unit Album]
50 Cent is keeping the blogs busy. After reuniting with G-Unit at Summer Jam and dropping off two new G-Unit records, plus dropping his solo album Animal Ambition, Fif announced some more big news while on a FOX TV segment.
When XXL spoke to the G-Unit members the other day, it sounded as though a new album was a strong possibility. As it turns out, it's more than a possibility, because 50 has already planned a new full-length project for a November release.
"Yes. You'll see an album by late November," Fif tells the host.
