Bang Em' Smurf's mixtape[edit]

The article says that Smurf made a mixtape with 50 cent, what was the mixtape called. I cannot find it anywhere. I am also looking for the mixtape 50 cent did with Jam Master Jay. Thanks. Sp0 (talk) 02:55, 29 March 2010 (UTC)


Hi, can somebody please find a good picture of the group. It would make the article look a lot better. cheese willy

Thanks The-G-Unit-Boss 11:28, 1 June 2007 (UTC)


Sections of this are practically unreadable. This should be massively rewritten. I would consider doing it but I really no nothing about the topic Mswer 19:13, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, What sections do you believe are of poor quality. I will have a look and try to make them more understandable. Reply here or on my talk page. --Thanks

The-G-Unit-Boss 15:51, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

I think replacing slang would help for people who don't understand it.


"Big Fase 100" is mentioned as The Game's brother, but "Big Fase 100" redirects to The Game's page.--Josh1billion 06:55, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I removed the link. Big Fase 100 no longer redirects to the game.

Thanks for noticing this error. --The-G-Unit-Boss 14:18, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

I reverted your edit. Big Fase 100 should redirect to The Game article, just like Hailie Jade redirects to Eminem. Daniil Maslyuk 16:23, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Up at the top of the page, someone changed the names of the people and what G-Unit stands for. so you might want to change that 12:27, 27 March 2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)


I changed website address from to because led to G-Unit Records website (oddly, and are the same website but with different addresses) and leads to G-Unit website. A special note for The-G-Unit-Boss: I will be reverting every your edit that violates Wikipedia:Manual of Style, especially such thing as wrong capitalization. You better stop "making article look better" that way. Thanks and peace! Daniil Maslyuk 06:22, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I dont mean to get on your nerves, but where in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style does it say about not capitalizing website addresses? If you tell me I would be delighted to stop capitalizing them. --The-G-Unit-Boss 11:02, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
First of all, Wikipedia:Manual of Style does not mention anything about capitalizing website addresses (therefore it means website address should be treated like regular words), secondly, note that Musical artist infobox sample template does not capitalize website address, and so do not featured articles (examples include Sly & the Family Stone, AC/DC and Pink Floyd among others). Ya got any objections? Thanks! Daniil Maslyuk 12:40, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
Hi, Yeh I see what you mean, ok ill stop changing them to capitalized as I see that you were only doing what you thought was right. At first it seemed that you was just intent upon reverting all of my edits. Thanks --The-G-Unit-Boss 13:24, 16 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi, There is a proposed WikiProject for G-Unit. Please add your name to the list if you are interested. See--WikiProject:G-Unit Thanks --The-G-Unit-Boss 20:15, 23 June 2007 (UTC)


Article needs more citations. I went through the biography section just now and discovered a fair amount of POV and unsourced statements. I have thus added tags to these so someone more aquainted with the... 'group'... can deal with them. I will go through the remaining sections and hopefully remove any gangster slang and unsourced POV material I find. ScarianTalk 23:28, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Colloquial Slang[edit]

"Disses" and "Beefs" are colloquial slang. They are NOT mainstream words of the English language. Wikipedia is aimed at everyone, but not everyone will know what "Disses" and "Beefs" are. Please, do not continue to use them in wikipedia. In my previous edit, I removed one of each example and replaced it with "Diatribes" and "Altercation's" respectively. Those are real standard grammar words. ScarianTalk 23:39, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

That's really funny. That's exactly the type of words I would expect some editors to use on an article like this. - Throw 20:10, 11 September 2007 (UTC)


Right now, as of July 2007, this article needs a lot of cleanup. Most of this page is about their feuds but there's virtually nothing about their music. A lot of the controversy feuds can definitely be reduced. Spellcast 03:52, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

I have reduced the "Controversy" section quite a lot see here. We just need to add some information about their actual music and expand their biography section. --The-G-Unit-Boss 19:56, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

New Beef Track[edit]

I found something on a website called Datpiff. A G-Unit/Dumout member Mazaradi Fox made a track called "Killa Season" which is taking shots at Dipset Leader Cam'ron on the "HoodBangaz 4 Mixtape", check it out, this is only more information in the "Controversy" section marked under "Other Fueds"—Preceding unsigned comment added by Halo2playa91 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for putting that new information up here. But the feuds section is currently being reduced to meet the Good article criteria. See 50 Cent. Thanks --The-G-Unit-Boss 16:06, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Its okay, I figured I give more information on the G-Unit/Dipset Fued but if thats what you want to do then I understand.—Preceding unsigned comment added by AHalo2playa91 (talkcontribs)
Thanks --The-G-Unit-Boss 19:55, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

"Founding Members"[edit]

Doesn't Smurf count as a founding member? He did grow up with 50 Cent—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

I dont think that Smurf and Domination where actually "Official" members of the group. Thanks --The-G-Unit-Boss 18:42, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
No, no, I don't mean offical members. Bang Em Smurf grew with 50, along with Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo. And the beginning of the G Unit page begins with founding members, in which Bang Em Smurf is an actual founding member because he grew up along with them.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
I understand what you mean, but Bang Em Smurf didnt actually form the group with them. It was purely Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and 50 Cent was it not. Bang Em Smurf was just affiliated with them. Thanks --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 09:18, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Ok so if Bang Em Smurf and Domination are not classified as official members, then shouldn't their names be removed from the "Former Members" part? If their names should be mentioned on former members, then Oliva should be mentioned as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Olivia was never in G-Unit. She was actually signed to G-Unit Records. Also we need a source to confirm whether Bang Em' Smurf and Domination were actually in the group before we make major changes because the article has included them for a long time. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 08:44, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, that's what I meant. Because Bang Em Smurf wasn't initially in the G Unit group, he is listed on this page as former members, indicated that he actually was a member of G Unit, when in actually he isn't, but he was signed to G Unit Records. Then Olivia, who was also not in G Unit, but signed to G Unit records, should be listed as well then. This would seem logical to me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

During the days of Bang Em' Smurf, G-Unit Records had not been established. It was founded after the release of Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. Also Olivia was never in G-Unit as a group she was on the record label like Young Hot Rod, Mobb Deep etc. We need to establish whether or not he was in the group G-Unit or just an affiliate --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 20:11, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Ok, before I say anything, This is not an arguement ok? I'm just saying. Ok so let's say that Smurf was an associate, and he is listed as former memebrs. Domination is also an associate but he is also listed as former members. Therefore, Olivia who was also not in the G Unit group specifically, but she was an associate. Shouldn't she be listed as former members by that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

No this isnt an argument, just a disscussion lol. Rather than adding Olivia, we should remove the other two? --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 11:56, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, a disscussion. I think removing Domination and Smurf would be correct as it would be logical. The Game is, well to me, is the only Official former member of G-Unit. Removing The other 2 would be logical to do. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Yes, but we need to find out if Bang Em' Smurf and Domination were actually in the group in the first place. thats what we dont know. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 11:46, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

It has never been officially said? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:04, August 27, 2007 (UTC)

Not in any interviews that I have read oor heard. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 10:31, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Wow. Well, how do you confirm something if it's never been said? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:32, August 28, 2007 (UTC)

Dunno lol. It must be in an interview somewhere, I just havent seen it. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 09:50, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

This is gonna hard to figure lol —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:55, August 28, 2007 (UTC)

Bang Em Smurf and Domination acutually founded G Unit, 50 later joined. (talk) 18:46, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, actually 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Sha Money XL, Domination and Bang 'Em Smurf founded the crew, Lloyd Banks was too young.When 50 Cent was shot, Lloyd Banks proved himself as a good friend and was accepted to join the crew.In 2005 Olivia joined G Unit.Also in the following years Hot Rod, 40 Glocc, Willy Northpole and Carnegie joined in.When the crew got their first successes with some Mixtapes, Young Buck joined.In year 2005 when the album 'Beg For Mercy' came out also The Game joined the crew, at this time Tony Yayo was in prison because of illegal possession of firearms and forgery. I want to apologize for my bad English (if there was something bad) and i hope, i could help you. Albert Pavlov =) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:50, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

What is this about Yogi Bear and whatnot? So confusing... the citations do not link to any verifiable information, either, and Citation #2 is broken. I will edit if no response. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jackson Peebles (talkcontribs) 18:54, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Contreversy or Fueds[edit]

How G Unit's fueds count as being contreversial? But for rappers like Lil Wayne, it's only fueds? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:27, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

it just depends how you rename a section header. If its named "Controversy" then it can contain fueds as well as other controversies however if it is named "Feuds" you would need another section if you wanted to add other controversies. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 09:07, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

On Current and Former Members of G-Unit[edit]

I believe that it would do well for the accurateness of your page to include that Olivia was a former member of G-Unit and, likewise, that Spider Loc, Young Hot Rod, Mobb Deep, and M.O.P. are the current artists signed to the G-Unit roster. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

They aren't signed to the G-Unit group, they're signed to the record label. There is a difference. JpGrB 05:30, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Lets not forget that Young Buck is no longer a member of G-Unit but he still is currently signed to the G-Unit Records roster. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Antbanks1989 (talkcontribs) 20:05, 10 September 2008 (UTC)


Tony Yayo is the only member of G-Unit (past and present) to not have been shot before? I just thought it up just now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:06, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Trivia sections are discourages. See WP:TRIVIA. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 18:00, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Former Members[edit]

I put in a cleanup-section tag in this area. It was heavily vandalized and contained questionable edits by users such as Rkorn542. Hopefully some more knowledgeable editors can tackle this daunting task. If it can't be sorted out soon I'll take a stab at it, but that would take the form of some massive revert, and I'm sure someone here can do better.WDavis1911 08:41, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Members of G-Unit[edit]

I changed the members. There are only 4 members of G-Unit (the group): 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and Tony Yayo. Everybody else signed to G-Unit Records, not the group. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:08, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Now Young Hot Rod Is A Member Of G-unit —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nathdawg (talkcontribs) 09:54, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Wasn't Mase a part of G-unit at some point? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:00, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Mase and Hot Rod were both signed to G-Unit Records. They weren't actually in the group G-Unit. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 18:00, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Hot Rod was not in the group. But really neither was The Game. now DJ Whoo Kid is a member they even said he was. Mcanmoocanu
The only members of the group G-Unit were & are: 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck & The Game. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 08:04, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Hot Rod member of G-Unit[edit]

Young Hot Rod Is now a member of g-unit he is the newest member.

Hot Rod is actually an artists on G-Unit Records, hes not a member of G-Unit. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 18:00, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Associated Acts[edit]

What determines who is an "associated act" with artist xyz? For example why is Joe in this category and not Mobb Deep? Dramatello (talk) 00:19, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

I don't actually think that Joe belongs in the associated acts section. Ill change it to G-Unit Records because all artists on the label should be affiliated. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 18:00, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Why cause he did one single with him. Mcanmoocanu

Mixtape Section[edit]

I have added the mixtape section to the page, if that is alright. I thought it would be appropriate to include G-Unit's mixtape work also.

Thank you, but they're not notable enough to be here, their page at the discography is fine. --JpGrB 23:15, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
Yep, No Problem ! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:23, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Albums section.[edit]

It may be because the album is still charting and was recently released and such, but I am not sure why the Beg For Mercy album seems to have a small paragraph, with regards to Yayo not being able to record most of the album; while T.O.S. only had it's release date, while possibly the Young Buck situation may be mentioned, albeit a short summary. I'm not sure, and it may be the same reason as the main Young Buck page (the recentism), but I'm not sure. Just my thoughts and wonderings. --JpGrB 09:32, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Former Members/Young Buck.[edit]

The ref that's provided for 50 "kicking" Young buck out of the group doesn't appear to be working anymore. If someone can fix this? --JpGrB 09:39, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Done! --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 13:10, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Sambav Sharma member on Lloyd banks page.[edit]

On the lloyd banks article which can be accessed from here it has:

"Christopher Charles Lloyd (born April 30, 1982), better known by his stage name, Lloyd Banks, is an American rapper and member of the rap group G-Unit along with Sambav Sharma."

Just wondering if Sambav Sharma is actually a member or if it should read "50 Cent and Tony Yayo" Lochie mac4 (talk) 06:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC) 16/6/09 (Aus)


Someone's changed the picture but I can't revert as I'm new. --Scythre (talk) 11:04, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Done. --HELLØ ŦHERE 11:06, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Semiprotection review[edit]

  • 17:40, 2 March 2008 Spellcast protected G-Unit ‎ (Perpetual vandalism [edit=autoconfirmed:move=sysop])

It's been just over 18 months. I'm reviewing this to see whether semiprotection is still necessary. As well as welcoming the opinions of regular editors, I've contacted Spellcast, the protecting admin. --TS 16:34, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Some BLPs naturally get bombarded with a constant flow of drive-by vandalism and this was one of them. I suspect this is still the case, but it's been over a year, so let's see what happens when the padlock is removed. Spellcast (talk) 16:57, 15 September 2009 (UTC)


fat joe in the controversy has been changed to fat slag —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:30, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Gang affiliation[edit]

You can think they are a great group of musicians all you want. Perhaps they are, perhaps they are not. Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But there have been allegations surrounding the group regarding possible gang affiliations. That's why I put "ALLEGED". The sources suggest (yes, SUGGEST) that they are involved in various criminal activities. The three sources I put involve former members, the record label, etc. I realize G-Unit records is not the group "G-Unit", but the article can further support the claim that they are involved in criminal activity.

I have 2 albums from the group on my media server at home. Some of their rap is good, but as it stands, it seems that many reputable sources believe they could be involved in criminal activity. Until someone completely proves or disproves the claim, it should stay as alleged.

If anyone feels it is too much to put it in the first paragraph, at least put it in a second or third paragraph/sentence, something along the lines of "There have been numerous allegations regarding criminal activity..." blah blah blah. And if not, then at least have a small paragraph on it in the contents.

If someone still feels that I am wrong, please discuss this before simply taking everything I did down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:54, 3 December 2011 (UTC)


G.unit had been in the industry for very long time,and hopefuly it sold and had inspired many up-coming "HOMMIES".g.unit was my favourite crew it inspired me,but for now seems tob be like im loosing hope on them ""HOMMIES"".uhhmm WILL G.UNIT rise AGAIN? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:13, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

G-Unit vs murder inc.[edit]

I think this part only has what the murder inc. said. Can someone add the disses thrown by G-unit and there label mates. it seems one-sided write now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abhinav0927 (talkcontribs) 08:30, 5 May 2013 (UTC)


In the song, Black Child talks about shooting 50 Cent, stabbing him, and other things, "I got a lot of living to do before I die, and I ain't got time to waste, shoot this @#!*% in his face. How you call your self ferrari you dont ride like me in da hood every day ready to die like me."

Since it's in quotes, did Black Child literally say "at/number sign/exclamation point/star/percent"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:29, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Kidd Kidd[edit]

He's officially a member now. He was listed on the album art for their first single NOT being listed as a feature, and on the rest of the singles' album arts, no names were written down, as they were meant to imply that Kidd Kidd is an official member of G-Unit and does not to be acknowledged as different from the original group members. There's no proof that he's not part of it, but there's a lot of proof that he is part of it.

Distortiondude (talk) 23:26, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

We need official word and reliable sources that support it. Without it, it is WP:OR. STATic message me! 01:38, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Static, we need a reliable source that explicitly states Kidd Kidd is a member. 2Flows (talk) 01:59, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
I have been thinking about this a lot recently though. The title of this source jumps out to me, "50 Cent Poses With G-Unit" and then the opening sentences, "50 Cent and G-Unit performed at a New York Mets game yesterday (June 14). The emcee then posted images of himself with G-unit members on Instagram." The caption of said photo by 50 is "This is the UNIT the homie Jeremih rock with use tonight. #smsaudio #power is on catch ep2." The photo includes Kidd Kidd, Jeremih, Buck, 50, Banks and Yayo. The group's first music video since their return was just released too. No feature credit for Kidd Kidd and just by watching the video you see he seems to be considered a member of the five member G-Unit. STATic message me! 06:13, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
  • I thought it would be a good idea to apologize to those I've reverted here, I actually just assumed the whole "Kidd Kidd" thing was IPs vandalizing, Probably should've checked before reverting but nonetheless I apologize –Davey2010(talk) 12:54, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
@Davey2010: No need to, I have reverted it too as speculation, however with the new evidence, if there is consensus to list him, we should. STATic message me! 17:42, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Ah okay, Totally agree, Cheers, –Davey2010(talk) 17:50, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
I watched the video and indeed it seems that Kidd Kidd is considered a part of the group. As Distortiondude said above, he's also not listed as a feature on the songs they've released so far. While this is WP:OR, it leads me to believe that Kidd Kidd is a member. 2Flows (talk) 18:48, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
However, along with the HipHopDX source, we do not have to worry about it being OR, due to the wording of both DX and the caption of 50 Cent's instagram picture. Notice he specifically outed Jeremiah but not Kidd Kidd. STATic message me! 19:36, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
I agree. If you think that's enough to list him, I'll support it. 2Flows (talk) 20:06, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Yeah from what it seems, he's in . We should maybe wait for better sources though or until a mixtape or album drops with Kidd Kidd not being credited as a featured artist. This could just be another Hot Rod situation, who was also featured on many 50 Cent songs and G-Unit mixtapes. 1Sire (talk) 00:48, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
The HipHopDX source says it, there need really not be a better source then that. HipHopWired has always gleamed me as reliable too, which also says he joined G-Unit. I doubt any mixtape will be released, it is not 2003-07 anymore, and the album will not be coming until November at the least. 50 Cent called him a member of G-Unit and he has consistently appeared on the records that have been released. I am pretty sure this would be different than the Hot Rod situation. STATic message me! 01:44, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Well I was wrong about the mixtape thing lol, G-Unit will always be the same. It kind of bothers me that Kidd Kidd did not appear on their first original track since their comeback. I would also support a bit of waiting, if he is not credited as featured on the mixtape, appears on the cover or something else obvious then we can change it. However, in the meantime I think we should mention the significant association in the comeback section. STATic message me! 18:22, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
But 50 also isn't on that song. I think not every song will feature every member of G-Unit for the mixtape/album. Distortiondude (talk) 19:06, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
I changed my mind. Based on these sources [1], The Source: "The original squad of four, plus the addition of 50′s protege, Kidd Kidd", MTV: "Once again, the whole team is here, as 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, and Kidd Kidd all appear on the track.", and [2], [3], HipHopWired "G-Unit performed in Queens for the first time since reuniting at a concert at Citi Field. What was initially slated to be a 50 Cent show eventually became a crew effort with Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, and Kidd Kidd.", discusses his additions, and AllHipHop: "Kidd Kidd is noticably not labeled as a featured artist on this G-Unit song. Every member of the Unit gives their patented style of rap, however it is the newest member of the group who delivers the song’s most impressive lyrical performance:" along with the previous sources brought up. This is no where near WP:OR anymore. STATic message me! 02:04, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 2 July 2014[edit]

Kidd Kidd isn't member of G-Unit. He is just an affiliate or sideman whatever you call him. He shouldn't be on the roster.
