Before 50 Cent left Shady/Interscope, it was no secret that the once almighty G-Unit had run it’s course. A couple weeks ago, Yayo hopped on Instagram to voice his opinion but Banks has been rather quiet with it all. Sitting down with the homie Rob Markman, Curtis speaks on their relationship and breaks down how it all fell a part.
“I think he wanted his independence. [Yayo and Banks are] like my little brothers, so at points I say things that make them uncomfortable. There was one point where you can even say I was a bit insensitive.
His father passed away and I was like, ‘All right, he passed away but you can’t just go home and stay home.Ask Kanye, his mother passed away while his record was at a peak point. If he didn’t go on tour, he wouldn’t be the Kanye you know right now,” 50 said referencing the 2007 death of Donda West. “He worked his way through that situation; the world doesn’t stop.
When one of my homeys get killed or they pass away, we don’t stop doing what we’ve been doing. Five or six people got killed when we were on the road prior to [Banks] actually behaving like that. To me, it’s an excuse.”
