Several Rap figures, including Dr. Dre, Lil Wayne and Drake, are participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where people dump buckets of ice on their heads and/or donate money to ALS [amyotrophic lateral sclerosis] research. Each participant then nominates another person to complete the challenge.
Now, the members of G-Unit have joined in these fundraising and awareness efforts.
50 Cent appears in his ice bucket challenge video, sporting a white T-shirt and gold chain. The emcee nominates Ludacris to complete the challenge in his clip. Luda responded to this challenge by re-gramming the video with the following caption: “Ha! #nowthatsludicrous #aboutdamntime #alsicebucketchallenge.”

G-Unit’s Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck have also participated in the challenge. They poured buckets of ice on one another on a balcony in clips that appear on Young Buck’s Instagram page.
