Tony Yayo Says G-Unit Was Better Broke "I Would Love To See a G-Unit Reunion...When We Were Broke, We Had So Much Fun" [Video]



MTV writes:

They say money is the root of all evil. That may or may not be true, but it definitely is the root of the G-Unit rift. That's if you ask 50 Cent's right-hand man Tony Yayo.

"You know what's crazy? It's like when we didn't have any money, things were better," the Talk of New York told MTV News last week when asked about the possibility of his group G-Unit reuniting.

50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Yayo were the founding members of the group, which made their mark on rap's underground mixtape scene in the early 2000s as Fif's career was skyrocketing. At one time, the group boasted as many as five members with Young Buck and Game joining the clique. By the time the crew dropped their sophomore album T.O.S: Terminate on Sight in 2008, Game was long at odds with the group and Buck was on his way out. Lately however, it seems as if even the core trio can't get along, with a notable distance between Fif and Banks.


"When everybody got money, it's like things just went downhill, so it's like, I dunno, egos," Yayo said trying to give some sort of context to the rift. "I would love to see a G-Unit reunion. I would love to see me, Banks and 50 definitely onstage."

Having Game or Young Buck rejoin the fold however seems highly unlikely. "My problem with [Game] is that once he got to the point where he wanted to be, when he sold 5 million records, it was G-Unot," he said. "So it's like why would you want a reunion now if you want to be the guy to bring down the brand and the name."

All the dysfunction has Yayo frustrated with the hip-hop game. As a soloist he's released one major label debut and a slew of mixtapes, but lately he's just not feeling things like he used to. "When we were broke, and we didn't have a pot to p*** 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, 'F--- rap,' " he said candidly. "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."

Listen to Kevorah's new single "Pull Up" after the jump!Coming from the city of Toronto it's not hard to see how this 20 year old MC stands out from the rest of his predecessors. We have covered many rappers from Toronto with the city's signature RnB fused Hip Hop/Trap sound (many refer to as the "Drake effect") but Kevorah's intricate lyricism definitely separates him from the crowd.
