News Stories - WuTang

50 Cent: You know I think it’s clear, that even the public understand, that there is no direct comparison to any group or crew prior to G-Unit, like who would you point out that had an entire crew, if you pointed out.

AllHipHop.com: wu-tang maybe?

50 Cent: wu-tang is probably the only that you can say that established having each one of their artists recognized. But they can’t say that each one of their artists went platinum individually. You see what I’m saying? And have success when they actually come together to create the project at the same time. It’s a tough task for you to actually accomplish that. Like you got St. Lunatics when there’s members in the group that you won’t actually know their name. You feel what I’m saying? And the same for D12. They had that issue. That’s why they did “My Band.” Eminem created that actual song because it would be people having those issues not paying enough attention to the group. So I was conscious of those situations initially. That is why after completing Get Rich or Die Tryin’, I went straight to Beg For Mercy instead of my follow up, The Massacre. Of course Interscope wanted another solo album, and I said, “Naw, I want to do this and then we went into The Hunger For More and Straight Outta Cashville to release those records.
