50 Cent and Game may have turned enemies in recent years, but the one-time collaborators seem to still think alike.

The former friends recently announced the titles of their respective upcoming projects and, what a coincidence, they share very similar names. Fif's album, slated for a July 3rd street date, is titled Five (Murder by Numbers) while Game's late-2012 set is called F.I.V.E.: Fear is Victory's Evolution.

Five being the common denominator, XXL decided to come up with five other moments in which the G-Unit general and the G-Unot ambassador commonly shared the odd figure. Stop it, Five.—Gina Montana

The beef between Fif and Game became public right around the time Game's first album dropped at the top of 2005. The two managed to put their differences aside for the anticipated album's release, as 50 appeared on three tracks. In fact, the release date of 50 Cent's 2005 album, The Massacre, was pushed back to accommodate Game's debut. But tension allegedly arose again during the filming of Game's "Hate It or Love It" video, when 50 refused to shoot a scene in the front seat of a car with Game, choosing instead to sit in the back. 50 then went on to dismiss Game from G-Unit during a Hot 97 radio interview, but that was followed by a public reconciliation, which didn't last long. G-Unit criticized Game's street cred and Game allegedly launched a G-Unot campaign, a myriad of diss tracks were released back-and-forth and the rest is history.

After Game released "240 Bars (Spider Joke)" and "100 Bars (The Funeral)," both attacking G-Unit, Banks jumped in the mix, replying to Game during a "Rap City" freestyle booth session. The Game retaliated by releasing a diss record called "SoundScan" where he pokes fun at Lloyd Banks' album, Rotten Apple, falling thirteen spots on the Billboard 200 chart and disappointing second week sales. Lloyd Banks replied on his mixtape Mo' Money In The Bank Pt. 5: Gang Green Season Continues, with the song "Showtime (The Game's Over)" specifically aimed at Game.
