G-Unit joined Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club this morning, and while Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks chimed in during the 45 minute conversation, 50 Cent had a lot to say about his relationship with Dr. Dre and whether or not he still loves music.
For starters, the Jamaica, Queens, rapper-turned-mogul agreed with the notion that album release dates are played out, and confirmed with Yayo and Banks that the music that they have been releasing and will continue to release was birthed the week after they took the Summer Jam stage. Charlamagne and DJ Envy questioned why 50 Cent still makes music, considering the fact that it's not his main bread and butter these days, but true to his form, he had an answer for that.
"It may not be the biggest financial piece, but it’s still a passion connected," he said. "It’s the reason I’m able to do all those things.”
When it comes to his relationship with Dr. Dre, 50 Cent believes that the disconnect between him and Jimmy Iovine ultimately caused the distance between him and Dre to grow on top of the weird East Coast-West Coast dynamic at Interscope. At this point, Tony Yayo chimed in with how he feels about the situation.
"We beat somebody up for Dr. Dre, I can say it now. No disrespect to L.A., but it was a whole lot of New York dudes beating somebody up for Dr. Dre," he said. "He’s cool, I like his music and everything, but I feel like when you beat somebody up, they owe you a little bit."
The crew concluded the interview by reiterating that they have a lot of music coming down the pike, and since 50 thinks that release dates are played out, it's time to keep your ears open for new G-Unit drops.
