It's Throwback Thursday all over the internets today, and since we've had a lot of G-Unit talk recently from 50 Cent and Tony Yayo in various interviews, we decided to throw up some classic G-Unit back when they were all on good terms.
50 Cent has been doing the interview circuit later, and he's taken no prisoners when addressing his former G-Unit collaborators. While he's made a few comments about the rapper's that once occupied his circle, including calling them Troy Ave's hype men, one comment stood out in particular.
50 Cent filed a lawsuit against WorldStarHipHop.com back in 2009, after his image was used on the header of the website without his permission. Fif argued that the picture left visitors with the impression that the rapper owned or was affiliated with the site.
Last we heard from Yon Ju he was going at Game. He dropped 3 diss tracks in fact-- "The Full Edit", "The Last 48", and "Beef".
The G-Unit affiliate is back with a new offering called "Dedication", which sees him back to good old fashioned bragging.
50 Cent, like the rest of the music industry, is in Austin, Texas for SXSW right now, and after performing a new track, "Hold On", Fif participated in a fairly disorganized interview backstage-- but we did learn some things.
50 Cent revealed the cover art for his upcoming album Animal Ambition last night, along with a 'release calendar' for when you can expect new music off the project to drop. The first tracks coming up are "Hold On" and "Don't Worry 'Bout It" with Yo Gotti, both due out on March 18th.
50 Cent has been involved in many business ventures, and is responsible for a lot of important music, so it's really saying something when he describes his new TV series as “probably the biggest thing” he's ever worked on.
It's already hard to predict where 50 Cent's business ventures will take him next, and his new partnering with the Swan racing NASCAR team has thrown us yet another curveball. Fif will be lending his SMS Audio branding to two of the team's cars and drivers, serving as an official sponsor.
Young Buck seems to be announcing his return to music, and dropping chilly tracks like this one seems the way to go. After leaving G-Unit and filing for Chapter 10 bankruptcy, the rapper seems to be on the come back trail.
A highlight from Troy Ave and DJ Drama's White Christmas 2, "Your Style" is now available in all its mastered, untagged glory.
The track finds Troy teaming up with fellow New Yorker and former G-Unit member Lloyd Banks. The torch-passing moment happens over a warm Chase N Cashe beat.
