50 Cent Done Helping Lloyd Banks & Tony Yayo’s Careers

Posted By on May 27, 2014

Music mogul 50 Cent was recently interview by GQ magazine and the New York rapper spoke on his relationship with estranged G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo.

According to 50, he has put too much of his time and effort into his friends without seeing much growth from either.

 “Imagine a plant, he says: “If you spent ten years watering it, it’d f*cking grow.” And if it didn’t? “Doesn’t that tell you you need to get new seeds? F*ck this. New seeds–let’s do something different now.” He’d made Banks and Yayo famous by letting them stand next to him on stages around the world, given them every opportunity to succeed, and yet they couldn’t get there on their own. “I enabled these guys,” he says. Now they felt entitled to success they didn’t earn. … I wouldn’t have been a friend if I didn’t help them. But helping them hurt them. Can you see that concept?”” (GQ)
