Buckle up G-Unit fans, it looks like an official reunion could be on the horizon. Last night, 50 Cent showed up at DJ Drama's video shoot for his new single "Wishing" to make a cameo appearance in the visual. Apparently, The Game and his crew were also in the building, as Game's Blood Money Entertainment signee Pharaoh Jackson tagged a couple of Instagram pictures of the two chilling in the same location. The big story, however, was the caption of one of his posts. HHNM first pointed out the connection.
“The BEATLES AKA “G-UNIT” are joining forces again… “STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON” the movie captivated the Globe…. NOW what’s gone happen when we do the “G-UNIT” movie with all the drama… G-UNIT aka the Hip-Hop Beatles TOOK OVER THE WORLD, BUT EGOS CAUSED THEM TO BREAK UP PREMATURELY….” he wrote. Not only does this directly mention the possibility of an official reunion between the two longtime rivals, but it even drops the possibility of a Straight Outta Compton-style movie about the group.
This might come as a surprise to some, considering 50 and the Game have famously been rivals for years now, but signs of their potential reconciliation have been popping up all over the place recently. Game posted a drunken Instagram praising 50's Effen Vodka back in March, and they peacefully partied at the same club later that month. He even met up and chilled with fellow G-Unit member Lloyd Banks in Dubai back in February. And while 50 didn't seem too pleased about it at the time, it looks like the cooling hostilities between the two parties might finally be starting to mend their relationship.
Of course, 50 and the Game were once very close, uniting the East and West Coasts with their work in G-Unit and the Game's hugely successful debut album The Documentary. Things went south for the two soon after though, with 50 kicking the Game out of the group for alleged disloyalty. Tensions quickly boiled over, resulting in an infamous shootout outside of New York's Hot 97 station in 2005. Diss tracks soon followed, and for years it seemed like the two camps would never reconcile.
With King Pharaoh's announcement, however, it looks like the two might finally be ready to squash their beef. Considering the rest of G-Unit put aside their differences in 2014, adding the Game into the mix would mean the whole crew would be working together for the first time in over a decade. We'll have to wait and see where things go from here, but the possibility of a full G-Unit reunion is looking more promising than ever.
