RUMOR: G-Unit Clothing Shutting Down?
According to industry gossip and a recent post on clothing retailer Dr. Jay’s website, 50 Cent’s G-Unit Clothing may be just days away from shutting down their offices. Since being founded in 2004, G-Unit has operated through a joint venture with Ecko, who manufactured the company’s product. Rumor has it that that deal has run its course, and the two companies will now be going their separate ways, as exhibited by the recent firing of high-level design and marketing employees. Friday is expected to be their last official day of business operations. It’s not yet clear if 50 will be taking the G-Unit brand to a new partner, striking out on his own or shutting down his clothing enterprise all together.
