50 Cent Says He "Disabled" Lloyd Banks & Tony Yayo

50 Cent also explains how "New Day" was originally meant for Dr. Dre's "Detox."

50 Cent recently said that Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo need to "get themselves together," stating that he hasn't spoken with his G-Unit crew in months. During an interview with XXLMag.com, Fif faults himself for closing the lines of communication, but states that he did so much for their careers that they lost the will to promote themselves.

"I actually haven’t spoke to ‘em very much. I’m to fault for that, though. I think I disabled them," he said. "I did so much for them that they don’t have a continuous work ethic. They got both of those tapes out there, but did you see any visuals? Anything? There’s certain things that the new guy is doing to create momentum or energy. They just sit there and wait. When someone works for you, you have the habit of dealing with things by not dealing with them. You may get in the regimen of coming over and doing it for them."

He also talked about "New Day" featuring Alicia Keys and Dr. Dre, the lead single from his upcoming album Street King Immortal. He revealed that the record was originally intended for Detox, but that it had a better home on his own project.

"The actual track was produced originally for [Dr. Dre's album] Detox. I was actually recording with Dre for his record and when he played it, it had a chorus that was a little darker. When he sent it to her, Alicia sent it back with 'New Day' and it had additional strings on it. He wasn’t sure that he wanted to use it because of creatively where he was at on his project. I was like, 'I can use that' because it would be the bright side of what I’m offering in my body of work. He was like, 'Okay, take it then.' Obviously, it was a hit. They’re sitting on it and after a while, she recorded additional verses and leaked the record."

    Lloyd Banks is a lyrical genious & if u actually listened to music & didnt just pay atention to the artist whom is sayin it u'd realize who is hot & who is not, but nobody realizes true talent anymore. Ppl believe snitchin is cool now of dayz & ive always believed tht u keep ur mouth shut ppl respect u more often & realize tht snitches gt stiches

    I like Game but he would've gone the way of other guys like Hittman left in Aftermath purgatory if 50 hadn't come through, wrote his hooks, and gave him a huge boost to get his record finished. If 50 did nothing, Game would've been dropped and Dre wouldn't have completed Documentary, especially if Interscope had no singles to work with. The beef was stupid since those two could've done a lot for good hip-hop, but they were beefing since the beginning, plus Game has a problem with everyone who he doesn't depend on for his career. Ego is all that ruined it for both of them but as much as some people can't stand 50, they can't deny he's the one who pulled up Game and the other guys and he expects them to know their place. It ain't even about 50 because Game beefs with everyone in any given moment, much more if that person is also getting Dre's attention rather than him. When Dre and Bishop Lamont were really close working on Detox and other shit for that while, Game was unloading a lot of hate and bullshit. We all know how it goes. I say this as a fan of Game but I don't deny reality.

      + Game was never signed to G-Unit (i mean no papers was signed)....if at all it were 50 should've posted it somewhere

    • Anonymous

      i agree that 50 has helped Game alot in making the documentary....but seriously dude Bishop was just acting like a 50's bitch n he kept dissing Game first...Game din have no probs with Bishop...so Bishop should've maintained a neutral position between Game n Fif

    huge fan of fitty, but he's dead wrong bout banks. banks has always done his own thing, he made himself that way and he can make his own lane without fif, way better sounding when hes with yeezy or solo.

    LOL, LOOK at the VULTURES come out when the MENTION of Fif's name or the Unit. LOL swear the hip hop world has their NUTS crossed to hope this guy fails. READ BETWEEN THE LINES, they ain't breaking up, HOW many cats can say as a BOSS they've done what 50 has done for his crew? Ill wait..........nobody. The guy GREW up with them, what more does he need to do APPEASE you herbs?? Banks has and Yayo has said 1,0000 times over they not turning on this guy, and niether will he. Because he doesn't hold they hands anymore dude is a clown?? Please, look what Puff did to Chris's moms, how bout what he did to Kim? Or the fact when Pun died Joe thinks he could take TS completely over? Sug? Dame Dash/Jay/Mobb Deep? The Roc.....GTFO with the 50 hate. Him and the Unit aint going anywhere eventho since they've hit the scene people are wishing upon a star........let the man breathe sheesh....

    "They've sat back and let 50 make all the BUSINESS moves" Aside from Yayo, I don't agree the others did. They all have what it takes to make money without 50. They just need to do it. I think each one got tired of being grouped into G Unit, and everytime they may have tried to make a move on their own, Fif got in the way. Just cause you worked together for a few year stretch doesn't make you blood brothers. It's a business, and clearly 50 was about his, so should the others.

    If you stand up to 50 Cent and say "FUCK YOU" he will hate you and kick you out!!! If you become 50's turn coat bitch he will not respect you, say "FUCK YOU" and he will kick you out!!! smh x 100 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 50 told Buck "don't outshine the master" and now he is telling Banks & Yayo "yall aint doing shit" Them niggas are scared and confused "AT THE SAME DAMN TIME!!" (Future's voice)

  • dot

    read between the lines...those are his homies on top of the fact that he has already got them a lifetimes worth of bread he has a point. #V6 is a great mixtape and needs exposure and banks needs to go to work. The ONLY headlines that Lloyd Banks Or Tony Yayo has been since or leading up to their mixtapes has been fifty "shitting" on them. As a good friend he's doing the most he can for them without actively doing everything. There is a point, he is promoting music, boxing, he got Pauly D winning , so they should be able to promote their music. Its not as though he has them as Contract slaves

  • Noneya Bizness

    Double edged sword. Banks and Yayo are basically welfare recipients. They've sat back and let 50 make all the BUSINESS moves without making any of their own. It's been 12 years and what companies/brands do Banks and Yayo run??? On the other hand, if it wasn't for them being the hype man for 50 when he first came out he'd be nothing today. And 50 has probably made PLENTY of money off of them. 50's biggest mistake was not putting out artists that the PUBLIC loves. WE didn't choose Banks or Yayo. And is it JUST ME or is this "relationship" that 50 has with Floyd kinda SUSPECT? He's literally with him 24/7. At this point 50 is completely leaving rap alone and using Floyd as a come up in the boxing world

      12 years? it hasn't been THAT long. 50 first blew up around 9 and a half years ago, with "Wanksta" and "In Da Club".

    50 is a disloyal clown. shit on your neighborhood boys you broke into the game with for cheap headlines. hes always talking family biz on the radio like a hoe. 50s new song with dre and alicia keys FLOPPED hard. havent heard it once on radio and no one cared online. hes a bitter success. he has the money and the power but he wants acceptance. i like how 50 shits on his childhood boys that held him down through thick and thin while he continues to push wack clowns like kid kid and precious p. 50 is mc hammer without blowing it all. sold a ton of records, but no one cares cuz the music was cheap. now he controls the media by saying dumb shit since his music is cold as ice. nice mixtapes fif, they both sucked and your new team of talent sucks.

    • Anonymous

      I haven't heard 3 Kings on the radio one time. The other Ross joints on the radio I've heard are pure corporate-packaged pop rap. The lesson to learn from this is radio is actually a better way to identify shitty music than great music more often than not. Measuring how good art is by radio plays, CD sales, money, and billboard rankings is one of the most embarrassing parts of hip-hop fans. If you wanna go by those things, then you'll find you've been listening to nothing but corporate radio mush and you have no opinion to give about what's good or not.

      YMCMB and MMG are the two weakest crews in hip hop. Stalley is the only decent MC between the two.

    Fif got a point with what he is saying. CC2 and V6 are better mixtapes than lost tape or big 10 but Fif realizes that you can't only depend on a mixtape to expose u, visuals are important these days thats why every video fif dropped from his mixtapes have over 1million views giving the songs more exposure!!Banks should have done the same wit songs like shock the world and it would have turned to a hit, but banks just drops the mixtapes and u never hear from him again. He has to work harder if he wants to compete with the new kids that are working their asses off!!

      Totally agree. There are 1000s of HUNGRY up-and-coming music video director's that would love to get a shot at producing a video for G-Unit and would produce some amazing visuals. But, did Banks and Yayo EVER go to google/youtube/vimeo/twitter and look for them??? ... NO

    I'm a real big fan of 50 cent, I havealways been but I have to say seeing him put down banks and Yayo is not at all surprising. I personally don't think its cool whether it be for media attention or a way to get under there skin. No one is safe when you are in the circle of 50 cent. Thats a fact and always has been. It is something that you have to accept when you sign on the dotted line.

    50 is right!!! look...50 has his hands in so many things but he still finds time to put out good music...banks and yayo dont have anything going on business wise as far as i know so they should be putting there all in there music....banks kills every damn verse but he doesnt promote shit....make videos man, do more features and yayo just sucks....banks needs to drink like ten red bulls before he gets ready to promote....lol

When he needs some promotion, he'll do something like say...he likes this song from FAT JOE, CAMRON (one-time foes to 50) just to make some headlines & keep his name out there. So in other words, 50 is willing to THROW ANYONE UNDER THE BUS (including the G-Unit) just to keep ppl talking about 50 cent in some way. Banks haS put out more noteworthy material than 50 (retail or mixtape), except for 50's 1st album..OKAY. All Banks has to do is get a manager or team that will push him to put out more videos & to collab a lil' more. 50 could've easily pulled Banks to the side & told him all of these things without airing out dirty laundry to the world for headlines.WE ALL KNOW THAT 50's NEW STREET IMMORTAL WILL END UP BEING A FREE MIXTAPE TOO. HE MAY CALLING OUT RELEASE DATES & SHIT...He's attempting to create enough buzz so that the label will want to release it but so far the label has been mum & very quiet on this...similiar to Murder by Numbers

      how is him talking about banks and yayo which is the absolute truth gonna get him more record sales? its like forget the music this article is gonna push units for him hahaaha get a life

    this goes back to the early days when 50 said banks was the next big thing in rap period he gave him the perfect platform to excel in the game and he didnt take full advantage

    The way I see it is banks just want to get paid. I forget which song he says "I just want the money you can keep the fame" He is still touring on his own and making big bank (no pun intended) and will always have a loyal fanbasae. But 50 wants him to be on some next level shit which I don't think Banks cares for. Either he just smokes too much hahaha.

  • dxb

    It might be true but how many damn articles do we need about how long it has been since 50 talked to the rest of G Unit?

  • aniggnigg

    damn game was right Lloyd banks and yayo would eventually break the ties. Kinda saw it coming cuz fif had a ustream session with them ones and it was mad awkward, none of them were saying shit.

  • The_Observer

    Yayo was sitting around waiting on 50 to die because he was told he was on his will...hence the lazyness..same as Bleek to Jay Z...niggaz is waiting on their masters to die Banks is jus a slave

    50 is correct artist with less talent be on the internet all day promoting trash banks is nice he could do better all it takes is a computer and a camera

  • Fish

    Exact numbers from datpiff 50 Cent '5 - Murder by numbers' - 117,656 downloads (released 6th July 2012) Lloyd Banks - 'V6 The Gift' - 209,541 downloads (released 24th July 2012) So Banks came out 18 days AFTER 50 and has roughly 92,000 downloads more than him and 50 has the cheek to say that BANKS is lazy and isn't promoting himself well????? GTFOH

    • tommy

      Your talking about mixtapes! What album did banks drop after he left g-unit?How much did that sell

    • JustSayin

      just cuz he has more downloads doesnt mean banks isnt lazier than 50, V6 took forever to drop so maybe if he had worked his ass off it wouldnt have got pushed back umteen times... all these numbers mean is that more people are interested in Banks music than 50's and if he has promoted himself, which he hardly did at all, than he would be infinitely more successful than he is

    • Anonymous

      are you a bit stupid? V6 was a datpiff exclusive with promo on the site and all while Murder By Numbers was released on thisis50. The Lost Tape was a datpiff exclusive and has over 500k downloads.

  • Honestly

    I think dres best bet would be to either make his detox album a compilation album since he can't shoulder the expectations, and everybody and their mama is responsible for the "actual" material, and maybe even revert back to calling it the chronic of some type.... So new name, new album layout and concept, and just release the damn catalog hes hoarding.

  • Anonymous

    lloyd banks is washed up he aint spitting punchlines like that and tony yayo been ass. 50 left these niggas for dead!!!!!

  • Dan

    Yayo used to rap his ass off before g-unit was even formed..ever since 50's first mixtape, Yayo slacked up and had good verses here and there..Banks is nothing but a Mixtape rapper; he can rap his ass off and is crazy with his punchlines, but thats all hes gonna be is a Mixtape rapper. 50 still has it in him to spit bars like he used to, but his thoughts for getting money off of songs be messing his lyrics and directions of songs up..he needs to rap just to rap and stop over thinking himself.

  • xion

    lets be honest, dr dre is never dropping detox! who is he kidding?

  • Jack Compton

    I can kind of see his point. When it comes down to talent Lloyd Banks's V6 Mixtape is far superior to 50 Cent's 5(Murder By Numbers.) I think 50 knows Banks is better than him and has got far more potential, but he also knows he is the superior business man compared to Banks. So rather than get behind him and support him, he's distancing himself from him to disadvantage him. Jealousy isn't cool Fif.

      not support him? or you mean hold his hand how many artist get labels and their artist blow up 50 did it for g-unit where is bws or the terror squad?

    i have to agree with 5-0 every artist has videos out and does some type of promo work banks just upload his shit and thats it this is 50 is the perfect site for banks to do that on when was the last time banks even had a interview? v6 is dope so was cold corner 1 and 2 but with a lil effort after releasing a gold indie single banks should be one of the hottest in the game by media standars

    Anonymous: Not a fan of 50 in the slightest but i agree with him on this. Banks drops mixtapes all the time but there are no visuals. We're in the internet age where you can do videos and just put them on your own page or youtube and hype your songs up like that. Neither Banks or Yayo do that. Yayos probably the laziest out of the whole crew. I dont check for him but i cant tell the last time ive seen a song of his show up anywhere on a hip hop website. Banks can still have a decent amount of success in todays age but yayo... he might just have to settle for being a hypeman. I dont see any label being that interested in him and wanting to put an album out with his name on it Postedan hour ago | Reply This is the only educated response I have seen thus far..

      no thisis50 didnt mention that part nor did they put a link to the whole interview

  • Marvinr2012

    SMH fitty jealous banks tapes are popping V6 is Crack for the ears CC2 was a dope tape--- that Lost Tape mixtape was worthless except for 2 tracks--- and now even Drama is reaching out to him...ill admit banks needs to tour the US and drop vids to promote his tapes but you know what i think he enjoys being a low key artist...after HFM1 he was too big of a star that caused him to flop in Rotten apple i think he learned his leason... to me hes a modern day BIg L ppl wont give him the credit he deserves till hes gone....theres a reason why ppl wont take his P.L.K status and thats why even officer ricky didnt attack him after officer down.

    Well, since Game left G-unit shit ain't the same, 50's ego destroyed on hell of a crew, I kept some faith til Young Buck also took off, I said I'm gonna hear one last album and see, that was T.O.S, it sucked ass... 50, stay to your G-unit clothes line and stay out of the industry, you're a fuckin' shame on the rap game...

    Im sorry but Cold Corner 2 was a straight classic and could have been a studio album so all this banks aint doin shit needs to stop. he jus released V6 which wasnt bad. stop bad mouthin ya homies and pick up fuckin phone fif. this jus strains relationships. plus its a hater move cus dude is out with a project and his so called homie putting him down. i can ride with that cus he doin it jus to keep attention on himself. what has fif done musically that was dope. those last 2 tapes were trash and mediocre at best. pot calling kettle black

    • Anonymous

      i think even fif knows that cc2 and v6 were classic mixtapes, but what he is trying to say is that those classic mixtapes could have given banks more exposure if he had dropped visuals for them and pushed some of the records, like shock the world. To be honest you don't see banks anywhere. He just drops a mixtape and thats it.Fif is trying to point out that it's not enough to have a classic mixtape if you are not pushing it!!

    • yey

      Youre crazy man. CC2 was a classic production and lyrics was stellar and Im not even a lloyd banks fan. Big 10 had 2 good songs. but i guess we can agree to disagree. I think most people on this site would say CC2 was waaaaay better

    • Anonymous

      wow yey you're a bit sensitive I see. Big 10 is still one of the best mixtape that dropped the last year or more. CC2 was good but not that great.

  • banks fan

    I agree with 50, Banks is talented but his work ethic sucks ass! CC2 was a dope ass mixtape but the general public doesnt know that because banks hasnt promoted it or dropped any vids. you see wack artists like french montana, 2 chains, gucci n waka gettin shine becuz them niggas grind they asses off.

    • Anonymous

      If under shining you mean getting public appearences, then the key is not the grind, but P Diddy / Def Jam promotional team and money. Of course, you can't reach that without grindin, and I agree that Bank's work ethic sucks when it comes to promotion. But the point is if you have to choose what do you want to do best, music or promotional - you should choose the latter. Because without proper promotion, no matter how nice is your music, it won't be recognized. The greatest example of the opposite are Gucci and Waka ... Not saying that French and 2Chainz would be better so much, but they had a few decent songs. Overall, everybody in that branch extremely sucks. Skill-wise Banks probably better then these four guys combined, but when it comes to promotion ... either get a real major contract or step up your game in that.

  • Anonymous

    i haven't seriously heard anything form tony yayo since his first (and i believe only) album, and the production/features were what made it listenable. i haven't really been listening to that much of banks' recent music. he's always had talent, but it seems like after his 2nd album and after a few of those mixtape, all his shit just started to sound the same. HFM2 wasn't bad, but i expected more. i miss the old unit

    • anon

      u got a legitimate opinion i respect what u said. but at the time when all the ny rappers was tryna "southern" their music banks kept that gritty sewer rat ny sound and thats y i respect him cuz he stayed tru to his roots when nobody was. when rotten apple came out wasnt nobody still on that ny sound

    • Anonymous

      Yayo made 16 mixtape in the past 4 years, most tape had 10-11 songs, while a few others 14-15. So you can count ~180 songs overall. How many can you recall from the top of your head? Yeah, I thought so. What's the point behind dropping 16 mixtapes filled with subpar material? I respect that at least he is trying, but come on, its clear that he doesn't belong to the rap arena. In the other hand, Banks' mixtape game are already legendary. He definiately got the skills, the lyrical content, the flow, everything. The problem is that he is not versatile enough (well, more like boring) and can't manage himself. The independent route he is trying to do is nice, but he should consider signing to somebody with mad promotion skills.

      well what i really meant to say is i haven't heard anything decent from yayo in a while lol. i still have to check out that new banks tape, i've been slackin on that. but honestly, i cant get that excited for new music from him like i used to. i remember when that halloween havoc tape came out with the fuckin pumpkins on the cover i was like "shit this is sick!". idk i think sometime after that, i havent heard a whole lot of bangers from him. gotta check out that new tape maybe ill change my mind

    • Hmm

      Yayo released like 20 mixtapes since his album and Banks recently released his new mixtape, V6: The Gift.
