When G-Unit rose to fame, the world knew them as 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Young Buck. There was always a fourth member mentioned, Tony Yayo, who initially was serving a prison sentence. Released in 2004, Tony Yayo joined 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks with Young Buck and Game for the 2005 run.
During this 2005 run, Tony Yayo released his debut album, Thoughts of a Predicate Felon, which included “So Seductive” with 50 Cent. G-Unit has been on a steady downfall since 2005, with Game and Young Buck leaving the crew and 50 Cent saying he only trusted Tony Yayo. In the time since then, 50 Cent has distanced himself from Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks.
50 Cent recently said there will probably not be another G-Unit album, which is disappointing for longtime fans. Tony Yayo, who once was so close to 50 Cent he titled his shelved sophomore album I Am 50?s Tax Write-Off, spoke on the situation with MTV News. The longtime member of G-Unit feels it was the money that ruined the crew and said he feels they would have been better off broke.
