G-Unit Reloaded : Take A Look Inside of the Clique’s Journey, Thus Far

Just like ordinary people, things were said in the heat of the moment, lips were poked out, and at one time even, certain members of the clique stopped speaking, but all that stuff could be considered as growing pains and part of maturing. And now once again, after the differences have been settled and communication amongst the fellas began flow normally, everything is set for another 50 Cent and G-Unit takeover.

This is literally a family, and tell me what family doesn’t have bickering and conflict every now and then… As we take a closer look at the following documentary, it is clear that the mutual respect amongst these gentleman is organic.
