Rapper drops bombshell during Funkmaster Flex's radio show Monday.

The G-Unit just got smaller. 50 Cent announced Monday night (February 28) that the Game has been excommunicated from the crew because he feels the Compton rapper isn't loyal.

On New York radio station Hot 97, 50 told DJ Funkmaster Flex he was
disappointed with comments Game made on the station Saturday night, when the West Coast MC revealed he would not be getting involved in the beefs 50 is stirring up with "Piggy Bank" (see "50 Cent's LP Pushed Up, Harsh 'Facts' Sound Like Disses On Leaked 'Piggy Bank'").

According to Flex, Game even said he was going to do a song with Nas. "He's gone," 50 scoffed. "He might as well make the record."

50 also said Game should stop saying "G-Unit." "He thinks he's doing me a favor when he says that."

During his conversation with Flex, 50 claimed Interscope was going to drop the Game until 50 stepped in and got involved with The Documentary. 50 also insisted that he's making more money off The Documentary than Game is, and that he wrote more choruses than he's credited for.

Believe it or not, Game was on Hot 97 earlier in the evening, talking to host Angie Martinez. When listeners called in to ask about his and 50's problems, Game simply said he was going to continue to make "good music." Two nights prior, Game had said on-air that he and 50 did not have to be friends as long as they worked toward that same common goal: making good music.

For weeks there'd been rumors of friction within the G-Unit camp, but they'd always downplayed or outright dismissed the talk, and they even held it together long enough to shoot a joint video for The Documentary's "Hate It or Love It," which debuted Monday on "TRL."

50's interview seemed to end abruptly around 10 p.m., and it was later revealed that the reason was a shooting that occurred either at the station or just outside. An NYPD spokesperson said a male in his 20s from Los Angeles was shot at least one time in the left leg, but no further details were given.

According to sources on the scene, 50 and his crew, which included G-Unit members Tony Yayo, Olivia and Lloyd Banks, were not involved and were escorted out another entrance.

In February 2001, Lil' Kim was at the station when a shooting occurred outside, and she was later indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice for allegedly lying to police and failing to cooperate with their investigation (see "Lil' Kim Indicted For Lying About Hot 97 Shootout With Capone"). That case is currently in the jury-selection phase.


A rep for Interscope had no comment on the implosion.
