I told him to go to the wardrobe department and go put a sock on.” The G-Unit mainman then reappeared wearing the biggest sock anyone had ever seen.

Mase tells MTV News that he’s looking to leave Bad Boy and head over to the G-Unit crew. “When I came back to Bad Boy, they didn’t want me to go where I wanted to go [with the music],” he said about the content of his comeback LP, last year’s ‘Welcome Back’. “They wanted me to do what was safe for them. I had to pretty much sabotage myself. Everybody knows who I am. I ain’t going to be 50. I ain’t gonna be Usher, but right in between.” Read more, including Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ reaction to the news, here.

Sean John did $23 [million] and Rocawear did $18 [million],” he said. “So like I said, I don’t mind doing deals behind pole, as long as I do it better. I have their information.

Looks like G-Unit are keeping a clamp down on discussion about The Game getting the boot. The official forums for G-Unit, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and Tony Yayo are down — as is The Game’s. They all read: “This message board is down. Please check back later.”

Admin posting at G-Unit World: “Basically G-Unit was on one radio station Power 105 and Game was on Hot 97. There was fans calling in and taunting Game and telling him that 50 was talking about him on the radio station and …yes…its true…50 kicked Game out of G-Unit. Game is rockin it solo. 50 is mad towards Doc Dre too because he didnt spend much time on his album like he did with Game’s. This sh** is going crazy like, 50 said basically he is done with Shady/Aftermath.”
GUnitWorld.com caught up with 50 Cent to discuss his new album ‘The Massacre’, due out March 8th, and what the other guys G-Unit have going on. Asked how it will be different from his ‘Get Rich or Die Trying’ debut, 50 responded, “Oh man, there’s some major differences between these records. I went back, I put the things that I missed on ‘Get Rich Or Die Trying’ and I added a lot of details. I feel like this record is better than ‘Get Rich Or Die Trying’. I can’t wait to see how the general public embraces it.”
