50 Cent On Tony Yayo, Young Buck: “They’re Babies”
“At different points they throw the tantrums and stuff like that and I just watch them,” 50 Cent said.
Speaking again on the falling out between himself and G-Unit members Tony Yayo and Young Buck, 50 Cent sat down with CGMofficialTV and referred to his fellow rappers not owning up to their responsibilities.
“They’re babies,” he said. “They’re babies. At different points they throw the tantrums and stuff like that and I just watch them. Just watch them do what they’re doing. It’s not like their responsibilities is gonna change. They’re grown. They’re adults. They behave like babies at points. They have to. They have to do it. It won’t be long before you see some different things from them.”
Speaking further on the development of G-Unit as a record label, 50 Cent cited signing Mobb Deep and M.O.P. as significant steps towards the legitimacy of the imprint.
“When I signed Mobb Deep and M.O.P., it was me changing G-Unit from me and a couple homeboys from my neighborhood into an actual record company,” he said. “Mobb Deep was established long before. I was a fan of the actual group. M.O.P. put out material, unfortunately they didn’t actually do everything they needed to do to get the actual record out, to get it released. Well Mobb was there, they did what they had to do.”
Alluding to another possible but oft-forgotten collaboration called DPG-Unit between Dogg Pound members Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger and G-Unit, 50 Cent hinted that the project was unlikely to see the light of day.
“I’m not sure if it’s actually gonna happen now because with Snoop and him moving around so much,” he said. “He’s touring now. So he’s out. But you always see me do things with Snoop because prior to Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, Doggystyle was the largest debuting Hip Hop album. Rightfully so, that album was a classic. That’s why the first opportunity I had I actually featured with Snoop. I was a fan of his work. On ‘P.I.M.P.’ I put out the remix. I didn’t put out the original version. I shot the music video with him in Los Angeles. It’s been a cool experience and I got a good relationship with him.”
Last year, HipHopDX reported that years ago plans were underway for Snoop Dogg to sign with the label in a partnership-type deal. “It was kinda close,” DJ Whoo Kid said. “It wasn’t like [Snoop] was gonna sign. He was gonna have like a joint deal [with G-Unit]. During those days, he had joint deals with everybody—he had one with Master P…he was signed to everybody. But he wanted a G-Unit connection because ‘P.I.M.P.'”
Elsewhere in the interview, 50 Cent detailed remaining close with frequent collaborator Dr. Dre despite his recent departure from Interscope.
“It hasn’t changed,” he said. “We still work together. It’s cool. You understand why we both have passion for music. What happens is, I’ve become an immediate competitor to them. I get so many comparisons. It’s difficult for me because they’re my friends and they helped me my entire career—Dre and Jimmy [Iovine, Interscope Records executive].”
