For those not supportive of this year’s reunion of G-Unit, New Orleans, Louisiana rapper and G-Unit member Kidd Kidd says those people have a hatred for Hip Hop and the whole rap culture. Kidd Kidd addressed the reunion of the group while appearing in a G-Unit documentary released this week by XXL magazine.
The rapper also added that those who hate on him as an artist ultimately hate on themselves since they were where he was at one point.
“The chemistry that we have is just—it’s ridiculous,” Kidd Kidd said. “You’re not gonna hear that nowhere else. It’s nobody else that’s in our lane talking about the things that we’re talking about. Doing the things that we’re doing. And how we doing it. So, the reunion is perfect. You can’t hate on it. If you hating on it that mean you hate Hip Hop. You know? That mean you hate the whole rap culture…If you hating on me, you hating on yourself. Because at one time you was me. You was me. You didn’t have nothing…I was that dude. And I got put in a great position. And who wouldn’t want to be here right now. Just the reunion period, man is great. It’s the perfect timing right now cause everybody went through they own differences. And as you can see it came back. That’s what brothers do.”
As part of the documentary, Tony Yayo addressed the pressures of being in the limelight as a member of G-Unit. He credited the public for blowing up an incident that he says was him merely “being mad at my brother.”
“We went through what we went through,” Tony Yayo said. “But, you know the public always make shit bigger than what it is. That’s just me being mad at my brother. That’s the pressures of being in the limelight. You gotta have thick skin, man. This business will suck your ass dry if you don’t know what you doing. And don’t know how to control your emotions and be humble.”
G-Unit helmsman 50 Cent also appeared in the documentary as he offered his take on how G-Unit compares to groups like the St. Lunatics and D12. According to 50, unlike the other groups, it didn’t take a long period of time for the public to gain interest in the other members of G-Unit.
“Nelly, the St. Lunatics, Eminem and D12, were different setups because their lead artist out of those crews had music that was so effective that it took a large period of time before the record labels and other people wanted to hear everyone else that was connected to it,” 50 Cent said. “Like me, I was conscious of them because we had already been rapping together so much. The world is acknowledging 50 Cent as a talented artist. The rest of them are just there as sidekicks and just that they’re people that I pinpointed and selected as real talents. You heard me, Tony Yayo, and Banks’ voice in the very beginning. 50 Cent Is The Future, all those early tapes, mixtapes. My life is the backdrop to G-Unit. The energy that was connected to the entire brand is 50 Cent.”
