50 Cent Is Still Not On Good Speaking Terms With Lloyd Banks & Tony Yayo; “I think I disabled them.”

50 Cent will be dropping his new album, Street King Immortal on November 13. A couple of weeks ago, he dropped the album’s first single “New Day” Ft. Dr. Dre and Alicia Keys. The song was produced by Dr. Dre and mixed by Eminem. It is good to hear 50 back on the radio! 50 is doing pretty good but that doesn’t means everything at his label is good. In fact, are there some issues in the G-Unit Camp? In a recent interview with XXL, 50 had some things to say about his protégé Lloyd Banks and childhood friend Toyo Yayo and it wasn’t good. Below are some excerpts:

Just last month you were very critical of Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, saying they need to “Get themselves together.” Since that time they each dropped a mixtape, Banks with V6and Yayo with Sex, Drugs & Hip-Hop. Have y’all talked?

I actually haven’t spoke to ‘em very much. I’m to fault for that, though. I think I disabled them.

What do you mean by that?

I did so much for them that they don’t have a continuous work ethic. They got both of those tapes out there, but did you see any visuals? Anything? There’s certain things that the new guy is doing to create momentum or energy. They just sit there and wait. When someone works for you, you have the habit of dealing with things by not dealing with them. You may get in the regimen of coming over and doing it for them.

By them not dropping videos to accompany their mixtape tracks, what does it tell you?

Dropping mixtapes…that was my ’02 strategy. That’s 2002 marketing. That’s old. You did nothing if you did that. Look what I’ve done with The Lost Tape or The Big 10. There’s videos for everything that was on the tapes. If you’re going to just wing it and drop a mixtape…pick the highlights that people like most and shoot ‘em. Go shoot the video.

Also joining the cast are Tahiry José (Joe Budden’s ex of five years), a female rapper named Lore’l (pronounced like the cosmetics), a woman named Lady Thunder, and Winter Ramos (Fabolous’ ex-assistant/friend). Filming for the new season began in the last week of July.”

Drake Confirms New Aaliyah Album; Says He’s Hoping To Get Everyone Involved

So now this entire new Aaliyah album rumor which is rumored to be executive produced by Drake is getting a little too confusing! Last weekend, I posted a new track from the late Aaliyah called “Enough Said Ft. Drake and produced by Noah “40″. Many people including myself thought that Drake leaked the track, was wondering who gave him the approval to clear the sample or clearance to any of Aaliyah’s records and if Timbaland and Missy was left out of Aalyiah’s upcoming album.

On Tuesday, I reported that the track was indeed released by Aaliyah’s camp and Timbaland is involved in Aaliyah’s upcoming project. I also reported that Aaliyah’s brother Rashad, took to Facebook and stated that there is NO Aaliyah album in the works that is supported by her immediate family. “There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family,” said Aaliyah’s Brother Rashad Haughton.

Now the latest in this saga is that Drake confirmed with Much Music that he is working on an Aaliyah album with his producer Noah ’40’ Shebib and he is hoping to get everyone involved.
