Last week, Game reached out to 50 Cent, his longtime enemy, about a G-Unit reunion. The olive branch caught the attention of many hip hop fans. Game felt as if 50 Cent would and should be willing to reunite his crew with Young Buck and himself.
However, a few hours after Game reached out to his former boss, he was shot down. 50 Cent said he has not contacted Game in five years and he has no association with him. 50 went on to say he has no desire to work with Game or Young Buck ever again.
Lloyd Banks also weighed in and he had a similar response to his former ally. Banks stated that Game had his chance with the crew. Five years ago, G-Unit was on top of the game and the rapper named Game was right there in the middle. He proudly waved his G-Unit flag until he and 50 Cent began feuding and he quickly switched sides and worked with multiple rivals of G-Unit.
But, now with his The R.E.D. Album having no buzz nor a solid release date, Game needs something in order to keep his name out there. Even after being shot down by 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks, Game feels as if he can convince them to reunite the G-Unit of old. Game said he understands that 50 Cent still does not like him and he said Lloyd Banks is actually a cool person, but he is loyal to 50 Cent. This is why Game feels he shot down a reunion with him.
When Young Buck left G-Unit in 2008, Game had predicted Lloyd Banks would be the next rapper to leave the label. There were rumors of Banks leaving the group and the label, but they did not gain much traction. In the spring of this year, Lloyd Banks put all of those rumors to rest when he released "Beamer, Benz, or Bentley," the biggest G-Unit hit since "I Get Money" from 50 Cent. Now, with G-Unit rebuilding, 50 Cent does not want any distractions, so he has turned Game away.
