Tony Yayo Confessed G-Unit Was Better Broke

· January 29, 2013

When a group breaks up 9 out 10 times it involves money. I think 50 Cent’s right-hand man Tony Yayo was basically saying that money is the root of all evil.

“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.

To this day I will say 50 and G-Unit’s downfall was when they stopped making mixtapes of other peoples beats sound hotter than the original. They toured off of mixtapes got some money and stopped using the formula that made 50.

    I agree with what Hahz said

  • BzB

    every hip hop group eventually breaks up over money, egos, creative differences or something. epmd, lons, nwa, fugees, atcq, outkast, wutang, bone, threesix, the list goes on. that hunger never lasts once you taste success. sometimes they get back together but most times they don’t.

    But why would 50 make another mixtape when all his albums were multi platinum including one that was diamond? I wouldn’t make $hit for free again either. G-Unit fell off when they’re act got old. Point blank. U supposed to lose the hunger when u eating good. That’s the whole point.

      he dropped albums with no mixtapes everyone to this day is doing that. He started a trend and stopped doing it when he started selling records. Making a mixtape isn’t for free these days livemixtapes and those sites pay artists to drop mixtapes on there sites and it’s promotion for your upcoming album which your making money off of. The biggest singles on a mixtape usually end up selling on itunes.

    Huh? 50 is doing just fine the last time I checked. And aside from LL Cool J’s run during the mid-80’s to 90’s, and Jay-Z’s current go, how many rappers have there been that stay hot or relevant for any good amount of time? Money didn’t ruin G-Unit, time did. And Yayo’s problems stem from his lacking the talent and smarts to take advantage of his opportunity. Everyone is not a leader.

    evil existed before money…money just enhances your weaknesses…it will expose who you really are.

  • Mister Mister

    He has some valid points, even Jay-Z once said “Truth be told, I had more fun when I was piss poor”

    It’s crazy how it is. You don’t have money & your starving, you want money so bad. But when you do get it, at times, and you have everything – you become miserable for various reasons
