Written by on May 7, 2020

In an effort to proceed his world domination, 50 Cent has launched a memoir-ish e book, Hustle More durable, Hustle Smarter. The media mogul shares tales of his rise to fame and his potential to go from operating the streets to proudly owning a number of companies, having a profitable rap profession, and elevating a media firm that has produced various hit exhibits. Additionally within Hustle More durable, Hustle Smarter, Fif speaks on his days with G-Unit—particularly, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo’s incapability to succeed in the identical ranges of success that he was capable of attain.

“I all the time felt that if I had perhaps completed a greater job instructing Banks and Yayo the way to evolve and alter their habits, they every can be in higher locations proper now,” 50 Cent shares in his e book. He felt that because the chief of G-Unit, he ought to have been a greater information. “Whereas I used to be out hustling (I truly hustled together with his father), Banks was extra content material staying on his porch and watching the world from there. Banks wished issues to come back to him, versus going out and getting them for himself. That’s not me attempting to assassinate his character—the man has ‘Lazy Lloyd’ tattooed on his arm. He actually wears his laziness on his sleeve.”

Fif went on to say that he did attempt to get Lloyd Banks to adapt to the altering occasions, particularly as social media superior, nevertheless it did not work. “To me, one reply was to vary how he interacted with the tradition,” the rapper reportedly wrote. “That’s why years in the past I informed Banks to movie a video of his life and put up it on YouTube. Introduce folks to his life-style. Let the digital camera observe him round for some time and see how he strikes. Possibly one thing he says or does will create a spark, go viral, after which he’ll have some warmth round him once more.”

When that did not work, 50 Cent tried to get Banks to be extra lively on Instagram, particularly as a result of he might be “a little bit awkward in particular person.” Banks wasn’t having it. It was then that Fif determined he did not wish to spend money on Banks anymore. “Age isn’t about what 12 months you had been born—it’s about the way you strategy the 12 months you’re in proper now. When you’re open to new experiences, prepared to take probabilities, and inquisitive about new matters, you’re younger. Interval.”

Tony Yayo, however, was allegedly nonetheless caught in working by the code of the streets. “If I acquired right into a disagreement with one other artist, Yayo’s response was ‘Let’s simply bang ’em,’ as a result of that might have been his response again within the neighborhood. If we acquired $100,000 for a collection of membership appearances, Yayo wasn’t eager about placing it within the financial institution. His first thought can be ‘Hey, this might get us three and a half kilos of cocaine. Let’s flip these, and we’ll be sitting on some actual cash.'”

That wasn’t how Fif wished to do enterprise, and finally, issues started to disintegrate. He additionally added that the issues he’d written about had been all points that he’d spoken together with his cohorts about, so he is not saying something they have not already heard.
