50 Cent, Lloyd Banks & Tony Yayo visited The Breakfast Club just in time for the release of their new EP, The Beast Is G-Unit. Using the group’s momentum, they’ve opted to release an EP, as opposed to an album. 50 says:
It’s better to just give them something […] It creates the content that allows us to continue to shoot music videos to stay current virally. People are making different choices for entertainment.
Of course, Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy weren’t going to let the guys leave without getting their perspective on Lil Wayne’s beef with Baby & Cash Money Records. 50 explains:
I don’t know why it’s so much of a problem over there . They [MTV] asked me about Lil Wayne and Baby and I was like ‘No Comment.’ Your Pops – he can forgive you, but he may not necessarily forgive me – you see what I’m saying? It’s their personal thing. They [Lil Wayne and Birdman] have that father-son relationship.
He even went so far as to say that they probably would have let go of Lil Wayne if it weren’t for that special relationship.
He [Birdman] paid him. I think their relationship is different. It can get blurry, and you can feel ‘this is our money’ – because it’s father and son, for a long time he put it into Wayne. Without a passion that a father has for his son, no one would continue to pour money into that.
On the topic Fox’s EMPIRE, 50 remains adamant with his initial comments, stating that he does believe the show is being inspired by his series, Power.
