50 Cent is either a master
marketer, a compassionate man or an odd mixture of both. Last night (June 1st), hours after releasing their first song together in years, G-Unit confirmed that a new album is in the works.
At the after-party for the screening of the 50 Cent-executive produced show Power, all of the members of G-Unit confirmed that their past differences are behind them and they are currently working on a new album. In the interview with XXL, Yayo explained how their brotherly connection made it easier for the group members to reconcile:
We just sat at the table, and it happened—that’s it. 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. We working. We just taking it one day at a time.
Less than three months ago, 50 Cent was on Sirius XM’s Town Hall series and claimed “Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo are the same person to me.” During the interview he explains what changed his opinion of the members:
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.
50 Cent’s new album Animal Ambition is available today.
