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.

G-Unit Signs Distribution Deal With EMI

Earlier today, G-Unit Records announced that they signed a distribution deal with EMI. The  first project off of the indie label will be Lloyd Banks forthcoming LP Hunger For More 2, in stores and online November 23rd.

In a statement Banks said, “It’s refreshing to see the EMI staff excited about my project, they have the passion and energy I haven’t seen in while”.

Yayo said, “The EMI staff is creative and willing to think outside the box.  They are fans of my music and career.  I’m looking forward to marketing and promoting my upcoming album with them.”

I recall a few years back, (February 1, 2007) 50 Cent said “artists goes to indie labels when the majors don’t want to invest in them anymore.” I guess the majors don’t want to invest in G-Unit anymore. Listen to the audio of 50 Cent and Cam’ron arguing on Hot 97 FM in NYC.

New Video: Tony Yayo “Pass The Patron”

G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo just released the official video to “Pass The Patron.”  This is the first offical single off of  Yayo’s forthcoming LP.  As of posting, no word on the name of Yayo’s new album, the release date or what label it is dropping on.

In my opinion, the hook is very catchy and I like the song. Good way to come back Yayo.
