Status Ain't Hood Interviews Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo
G-Unit Records seemed to expand a whole lot a couple of years ago when you had everybody signing. Now, for a variety of reasons, it seems like it's shrunk back to the three of you.
Yayo: Well, contractually, everybody is still on G-Unit, from Hot Rod to M.O.P. to Mobb Deep. Prodigy, shout to him, he's incarcerated now at Downstate Correctional Facility with my man El Dorado. Shout to them. Havoc, he's still making beats. M.O.P., they just have to deal with their own issues. They have to get theirselves together, but they still contractually still with G-Unit, along with Hot Rod and Spider Loc, and everybody else. It's not shrinking. It's just going back to the original formula of just me, Banks, and 50 in the studio going hard. And Buck, he's contractually under G-Unit too. He's still on the label. You could believe anything you want to believe, but he's still on the label, and he's still under the Unit. Nobody did anything to disrespect Buck. These are all the moves that he wanted to make. He complained about royalties. I never had a royalty problem, a publishing problem, ever in my life. I never had no complaints about it. I live in a million-dollar home. I own numerous properties. I have nice vehicles. I live the life that you supposed to live, being on G-Unit. - Villagevoice.com
