Some may view Bang ‘Em Smurf as a disgruntled ex-crew member who hates on his former crew, while others believe he has detailed inside knowledge of the G-Unit family and is just telling it like it is.

So when 50 Cent shocked the world and reunited his G-Unit crew for Hot 97’s Summer Jam and subsequently began releasing new G-Unit music, more than a few people looked to Smurf for answers. During an interview with Mikey T The Movie Star, Smurf gave his opinion on the situation.

“At the end of the day they [sic] money getting low, so they had no choice but to run back to 50. Because 50 got them in contracts, and he won’t let them out,” Smurf said. “Remember at the end of the day, the industry don’t f— with 50 and these n—as no more.”

Smurf says relevant rappers such as French Montana, Rick Ross, and Diddy won’t work with G-Unit because of past issues with 50. And because of 50 being on thin ice with so many, everyone signed to G-Unit is more or less blackballed in the industry.

Pointing to 50’s lukewarm first week numbers for his latest solo album, Animal Ambition, Smurf says the guys are beating a dead horse and the Unit is over.

“[The reunion] ain’t gonna work. It ain’t gonna last. It ain’t gonna get no money. Cause they ain’t selling no more units,” Smurf claimed. “50′s Animal Ambition just dropped some weeks ago, and he flopped. Once he flops, then G-Unit is gonna flop even extra hard.”
