“When We Didn’t Have Any Money, Things Were Better” Says Tony Yayo
Though 50 Cent has given his key issues behind G-Unit’s demise, such Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks’ work ethics (or lack of), Yayo has his own point of view.
“You know what’s crazy? It’s like when we didn’t have any money, things were better,” explained Yayo in an interview with MTV News. “When everybody got money, it’s like things just went downhill, so it’s like, I dunno, egos,” he guessed.
Though 50 recently said a G-Unit reunion was very unlikely, Yayo is more open to the idea. “I would love to see a G-Unit reunion. I would love to see me, Banks and 50 definitely onstage.”
Yayo stuck to his belief that not having money was extremely significant to G-Unit’s early unity and success. “When we were broke, and we didn’t have a pot to piss in, we were all callin’ each other’s phones and that’s the thing that just upsets me the most, and it makes me just want to say, ‘Fuck Rap.’” he said.
“Loyalty is my biggest thing. 50 helped all of us eat. We all had mansions; we all had Bentleys; so if Fif is in a bad mood or feels a certain way that day, you just eat that. You learn to judge your friends for who they are.”
G-Unit’s last album was 2008′s T.O.S.: Terminate on Sight. Through the years, 50 Cent has expressed in many interviews that the paths of communication between him and his G-Unit crew have been cut.
