G-Unit was once the strongest crew in hip-hop. In addition to 50 Cent, members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo saw success under the monster that G-Unit was. However, in recent weeks, it seems the chapter is officially over, as Tony Yayo — in late February — said he’s done with music, while adding taking a stab at 50 for not appreciating his loyalty.
Though, it’s clear Yayo and the hip-hop mogul has had a falling out, people don’t know the situation with Lloyd Banks.
In an interview with MTV, 50 discussed Banks, admitting that he’s been “a bit insensitive” toward him.
“I think he wanted his independence,” he said. “[Yayo and Banks are] like my little brothers, so at points I say things that make them uncomfortable. There was one point where you can even say I was a bit insensitive.
“His father passed away and I was like, ‘All right, he passed away, but you can’t just go home and stay home,’ ” 50 recalled telling Banks.
Though Banks went on to release 2008’s T.O.S. (Terminate on Sight) with G-Unit and his The Hunger For More 2 solo LP in 2010, each year he’s continued to pull away from his old crew.
