G-Unit or Wu-Tang: Which Reunion Will Happen First?

Besides being two of the most monumental groups to ever come out of the New York rap scene Wu-Tang Clan and G-Unit also have another thing in common- neither camps have been able to stay in the studio long enough to record an album. In a recent interview stand-out Wu member Method Man confirmed the possibility of a new Wu-Tang Clan album coming to fruition. Game’s manager Taydoe also revealed to the WSJ his behind the scenes peace talks and negations with 50 Cent in hopes of making a G-Unit Reunion a reality.

Truth be told, the Clan hasn’t put out an album since 2007’s 8 Diagrams while the Unit has yet recorded a follow up to their 2008 T.O.S. : Terminate On Site album.  Although both groups are legendary and their musical contributions have definitely helped push the culture forward, in all fairness five to six years without and album especially in today’s touch and go rap climate could spell disaster or even worse, Detox-land (the mythological place where would-be great albums go to be magically recorded like the projects from Outkast and D’Angelo we keeping waiting for.

Upcoming albums from these camps are a hard truth to sell, especially since the full G-Unit outfit (50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, Game) was officially disbanded in 2008 and the Wu put out a forgettable album that same year sans the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Much hasn’t happened in both camps in the last five years, so now that we hear Method Man talking about a Wu-Tang reunion album and Game’s manager attempting to negotiate peace between Game and Fif, we’re listening, but we’re not buying stock in the hype. It’s been difficult for the OG’ Killah Beez to swarm the mic together since a few small public rifts ruptured the harmony since their seminal debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). RZA maybe the mastermind behind the Clan but as of late all he’s minding is becoming the master of Hollywood with films like The Man with The Iron Fist.

Perhaps if Game chose to peacefully run up on 50 and explained his rational behind diss records like “300 Bars & Runnin’” and countless other disrespectful taunts we could start some dialogue to a reunion. Without picking sides Game’s gripes with his old boss have been a tad bit confusing to say the least. Earlier songs like “Why You Hate The Game” echo remnants of him wanting a truce, but  later Game also expressed his colorful and explicit desires about 50’s girlfriend. But who really knows, Game sure did seemed open to reunite with his old crew last month. Maybe the G-Unit leader will one day forgive forget and record again with Game for the greater good of hip hop. But we all know Fif’s been known to be a bit stubborn and rightfully so if Game’s attacks were indeed unprovoked and without warrant.

It’s more likely that the whole Clan will gather together and kidnap RZA’s new bestie filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino, and hold him hostage in exchange  for 13 banging productions from Bobby Digital before the original G-Unit crew can get together in the same room without anyone having to visit the emergency room. So while my money’s on getting a Wu-Tang LP before a G-Unit album sees the light of day, I still wouldn’t hold my breath for too long (okay maybe I will, I’ve still got iron lungs).
