50 Cent Promises G-Unit Mixtape Before Reunion Album Arrives

'We're gonna start over and work like we need a record deal,' Fif tells MTV News.

The G-Unit reunion is in full swing, with multiple releases over the past few weeks, and fans can expect all of those tracks to end up on a mixtape very soon. 50 Cent tells MTV News that the Unit definitely plans to drop a full tape.

“You’ll see a mixtape come out before [the album],” he explained. “The material that you see us putting out, it’s just getting back to the way we did it from the very beginning. We’re gonna start over and work like we need a record deal.”

“But while we’re putting out that music, we’re making the coolest original content and letting that be there for the actual album.”

Fif explained that he, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and Tony Yayo are still trying to lock down the vibe of their upcoming reunion album.

“We’re still trying to find the song that defines the record and then we’ll be able to work off that record,” he said. “The formula we used to make albums in the past [is] I’d actually come up with one joint, one song that kinda felt like, ’This is what the record should be like,’ and then sequence the rest of the record to follow that.”

“We’ve got some interesting stuff already, [and] it doesn’t take long because having that many moving parts, creatively everybody kinda keeps up with each other.”
