Over the past couple of years, 50 Cent has stated repeatedly in interviews that he and other original G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo have become distant, often stating that their work ethic left much to be desired.
Despite this, hope for a G-Unit reunion is not lost.
“People grow in different directions,” 50 Cent said in an interview with Billboard.biz. “[They] have different agendas about things they want to do and they’re sorting themselves out in that way and I’m focused on things that are important to me right now, but there’s a strong possibility there will be a G-Unit [collaboration] with the three of us. But right now, I’m focused on my solo project.”
During the interview, 50 also confirmed that his next album, Street King Immortal, will hit stores February 26. The album, which has suffered numerous delays, will be his first since 2009, a fact he blamed on the audit process that arose from the project being his last on his current Interscope contract. “I kinda got writer’s block until I got paid,” he stated.
50 added that the project will have 13-14 tracks, and that he’s recorded over 70 for it.
