50 Cent Addresses Possibility Of G-Unit Summer Jam Reunion

50 Cent says Nas called to question him about his Summer Jam performance, requested that he be kept in the loop.

As one of the headlining acts at the upcoming Summer Jam music festival, Queens rapper 50 Cent was recently asked about the likeliness of a G-Unit reunion at Summer Jam. While speaking with Hot 97 personality Funkmaster Flex, 50 didn’t shoot down the possibility of a reunion, but revealed that his fellow G-Unit members would have to put in a lot of work in order for such a feat to happen.

“There’s a possibility for us to do things, but they gotta get themselves together…I think it’s the work,” he said.

50 Cent later stated that he was even questioned about his upcoming Summer Jam performance by fellow lyricist Nas. He says that prior to watching the Queensbridge emcee at rehearsals for his Illmatic anniversary show at New York’s Beacon Theatre earlier this month, he talked to him over the phone about Summer Jam.

“We good. I went to see him,” 50 Cent said when asked about Nas. “He was in New York recently at The Beacon Theatre…It was the 20th anniversary of Illmatic. I didn’t go to the concert. I went to see him ahead of the concert when he was actually doing his rehearsals and stuff. He called earlier that week…He was just saying ‘I know you got something crazy planned. I just gotta make sure we in the loop. We know what’s going on.’”

The G-Unit helmsman also discussed his fallout with Interscope Records head Jimmy Iovine. According to 50 Cent, the disconnect may have happened when Iovine revealed that he didn’t like him.

“Me and Jimmy, I don’t even know where the disconnect happened,” the rapper said. “I know where my actual issues with him were created from…We had a communication. We speak to each other and he expressed that he didn’t like me…It stems for his passion for Beats. When he sees me with SMS. And you know what I didn’t understand was because I had things in the past. Exact things we could make comparisons to. Like Phat Farm. Russell Simmons when he had Phat Farm he didn’t tell us to not have Sean John, Rocawear, or G-Unit…They didn’t come right away when I’m the guy to come to right away. Like Em’s deal with Beats happened during his last album. They did the deal with him when they were sure that they were getting ready to spend marketing dollars on it to promote that next album. And that’s why you see Beats in every video that he created.”

After spending 12 years at Interscope Records, Aftermath Entertainment, and Shady Records, 50 Cent announced his departure from those labels in February of this year. The rapper is now slated to release his next studio album, Animal Ambition through a new agreement with Caroline/Capitol/UMG.

    Ross and crew ran up in 50's crib with H&K's and forced Kurtis to hand over Gunplay's chain, plus 5k for pain and suffering.

    "plenty of work into a free mixtape that makes no one money" I was referring to 3 studio albums.

    I actually get to be on the actual Summer Jam stage now that my carrer is irrelevant and the almighty G Unit records no longer exists to the general public. My new album wont outsell French MontNa but my dickriders say sales dont matter anymore. G G G G Unit!!!

    "their just lazy and feel entitled" Banks has put in plenty of work. Yayo, not so much, but being lazy and dealing with the reality that new deals are hard to come by, are two entirely different things.

  • Big Willie Roberts

    I'm sorry that me and The Untouchable MMG won't be at Summer Jam. We booked 4 da whole summer. We 'bout 2 tour and do shows at every Wingstop across da country... BAWSE! FREE GUNPLAY'S CHAIN!

    "no jimmy didn't like 50 because he didn't want to stay in his place and just be a rapper" But that's exactly what he was. All 50 had to do to get in good with Jimmy for the long haul was to grow G Unit, and expand the label. Everything else would have just happened. When your ego gets out of control that's when you feel you can do anything, and naturally the guy cutting the checks isn't going to like the idea of you wanting to be bigger than he is.

  • smh

    If i was Banks or Yayo every time I read some shit like this Theres a possibility for us to do things, but they gotta get themselves togetherI think its the work, he said. it would make me so fucking mad. bcuz you know what they aren't? almost billionaires like sir 50 is; he can afford to "do more work" for G-Unit, Banks and Yayo can't. This was their group their clique their music and 50 just goes eh YOU guys are too lazy. Sorry. And now a reunion? I would tell 50 okay yeah sure we will be there, make his bitch ass advertise it everywhere, and then not show up.

      Neither Banks or Yayo is broke. Both of them have more than enough money and exposure to create their own buzz, their just lazy and feel entitled... Your as ungrateful as they are

    50 cent said in this interview that he told banks one time "u need me for your records i dont need u on mine, i dont need u." man as much as i used to follow 50 cent its so fucked up how 50 thinks about the people around him. that attitude that he doesn't need anyone is why he's blackballed himself in the industry. banks has always been the best spitter in gunit and im sure banks got tired of sittin in gunit interviews with 50 always runnin his fkn mouth. Banks FNO mixtape shits on 50's animal ambition garbage and after listening to this interview im so sick of 50 spittin out dirty laundry about banks, yayo and anyone he can think of. 50 is so full of himself he constantly shits on the people that were closest to him, and now what who he gonna bring out in summer jam? who the lox? fat joe? nas? so what all those niggas would do it jus to get on the summer jam stage they aint really rockin with 50. im sorry but after listening to this interview 50 jus lost a fan.

  • Kidd Kidd is a poor replacement for Banks and Buck

    No one gives a fuck bout banks n yayo being there maybe if buck n game hopped on stage people would be kinda interested but that game shit is never gonna happen. 50 Fucked up his own shit by shitting on the hood that ayo technology single n just being a rich asshole for too long. Its crazy too cause all the music I heard off this new animal ambition album has been dope as fuck but people aint checking for 50 no more the album is never going gold in the states and aint gon do more than 70 thousand first week. I don't care bout numbers myself cause the 3 best albums this year aint sold shit Freddie Gibbs Pinata Pharoh Monch PTSD and Styles P Phantom and the Ghost but 50 has made such a big deal bout how much you sell since he came out that people cant wait to shit on him for doing such lame numbers

    I hope Nas disses him on stage like he has done in the past. Banks and Yayo will be paid to perform but nobody will really care. Nas is legend but this Summerjam is all about Wayne and Nicky bringing out Drake Imagine a kooon so stupid that thry dont see SMS as stepping on BEATS toes, no wonder the label failed.

    • Anonymous

      nobody will care about banks? ur a fkn idiot banks has a huge underground following, mainstream sheep like urself won't care but best believe Banks stay droppin heat with mixtapes and his FNO tape he dropped in october is nothin but fire. dont talk like u know shit about real hiphop, jus cuz banks aint on mtv and interviews like 50 dont mean he aint working or got fans. do ur homework before u talk dumb shit

      50 Cent is a legend so this Summer Jam is all about him closing out the show and bringing out Tony Yayo and Biggie's hologram.

    • Anonymous

      Nas is a mature grown man so he's not going to diss someone on stage after calling him up, being all friendly with him and having him at his rehearsal.

  • dan

    He was just saying I know you got something crazy planned. I just gotta make sure we in the loop. We know whats going on. What do you think Nas is reffering to when he says CRAZY planned..We know whats going on..??? Sounds like 50 about to do some unexpected shit. I been having this feeling like NEW YORK needs to get back on the map and the only way to do it is for the legends to lead the way.. NExt thing you know 50 got a song with fat joe... all sudden 50 with LOX all sudden 50 talkin to Nas.... WE ABOUT TO SEE NEW YORK HIP HOP STAND UP AS ONE!!!! LETS Bring this music Vibe back to where it belongs.
