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.

  • dark vanilla

    Where’s ur source Jonny Highsocks, cuz there is no way that G-Unit clothing is ranked 3rd on urban designers. No one wears that garbage.

    • Jonny Highsocks

      I read that in the last GQ. That one nigga is right. Yall will support a white designer with no problem. Man niggas hate 50 so much it’s a damn shame. Yall really think this nigga ain’t selling?? Yall keep saying only white boys wear it. Who cares?? Theres more white people in the US the last time I checked than anything else. If I designed clothes I would hope white people, brown people, whoever with the money to pay would buy my gear. Wake UP!!

  • Sol

    “They aren’t shutting down,” a source told AllHipHop.com. “They may be leaving their partner, but the G-Unit brand is a base business of $75 million dollars annually.”

    I agree that hardly anybody wears it like that, but evidently niggas still be coppin it. But as usual, here the haters come.

  • Saint

    I think he can get a new partnership but he really need to switch up to a new design team because all that writing all over design is real kiddy!!

  • fireforreal

    G-unit clothing is only wore by white teenagers who think 50 is hot and middle school kids who have there parents buy there clothes for them.I can see Ecko sayin fuck G-unit becuase it’s not worth having another contract because of the rapid decline in sales.So let’s end it like this

    Fuck G-unit as a staff,record lable(clothing line)and as a mutha fuckin crew and if you want to be down with G-unit Fuck you too.Mase fuck you too.

  • DADE COUNTY 305

    peace out

  • hahahah

    why do people post when they are hatin?? oh yeah nevermind they have NO LIVES lol FAGGGGGSSSSS

  • G-Soldier

    Thats not true….i just heard an interview where 50 said he was renewing his clothing line deal

    http://allhiphop.com/stories/news/default.aspx

    It was one of the highest earning clothing lines a couple years ago and i still see people all over rocking the G-Unit brand….i kinda doubt it has lost that much in sales if any

  • hey

    the unit has some tight clothes. u have to go to tha right retail store. and no they dont sell no g-unit in mutherfuckin walgreens. dude i gotta few shirts. nice as shirts, pimpin. fuck tha haters, yall wouldnt know a real dude if they were in front of ur face

  • Vicious Seiger

    This isn’t exactly a major loss to the world of hip hop fashion. I mean many brands as stated before run their course while others just never really appeal to their attended customers. To go this long is a whole lot better than many other artist brands have gone including the likes of Busta, Outkast, Wu, Naughty, Snoop and many, many other including Em himself. To tell the truth in the last 15 years I’ve seen designs & colors far beyond just horrible … I’m sure everyone has seen some kind of radioactive bright ass color sweatshirt that even your girl wouldn’t wear and said to yourself “You want me to pay you for this sh%t!” or some rag-tag looking jeans that make you say “I’m paying for your to dingy and rip up these joints before I buy it?”. I just think fashion is a hit or miss thing and when it’s time to go… just go. I mean more than half of the designs for these lines are not by the artist and they are by people not really in touch with the market they are trying to appeal to or they just have to specific an audience as to who they are marketing to. Either way this is not a major disappointment or a surprise when a business isn’t making money, there is no need to pour more money into it trying to postpone the inevitable.

  • me

    ALL THE PEOPLE THAT BUY THE G-UNIT CLOTHING ARE FROM OVERSEA’S THATS WHY 50 KEEPS TOURING IN EUROPE CUZ THATS WHERE HE MAKES MOST OF HIS MONEY AT…

  • chucktown

    R U SERIOUS!! Me and my dogs be wearing Gunit clothes.. Let me guess, yall got be from UK or from the west coast.. lol.. yall niggas cant dress over there.. YALL NIGGAS IS WACK . GGGGGG-unit

    • BEZ

      THEN YOU AND YOUR DOGS ARE WACK

  • Flymasta

    I SEE NO ONE REALLY SUPPORTS 50 AND SOME CLOTHES STILL SELL LIKE APPLE BOTTOM JEANS ALL THE FEMALES WEAR THEM

  • Tris

    It makes me laugh how much peopple hate on these forums…

    For one I cant see G-Unit Clothing shutting down just yet, as far as I’m aware the manufacturing deal with ECKO is coming to an end and G-Unit clothing, I guess will have options to take the brand to another manufacturer or whatever. They’re not going out of business, they still making money!

    And some of you people have to wake up, wherever you can make money then go make it. I dont see Bill Gates or Steve Jobs saying “..fuck Europe, I aint selling shit over there, US only…” you fucking crazy!!! If you really know business then you know its about being global….

    Fifty aint stupid…he tours Europe like crazy because the money he earns doubles when he gets back home due to exchange rates etc. Wouldnt you go and do the same…or you just gonna stay in your hood and make local money!!!lol

    People need to stop hating and see the reality of situations. Too much 50 hating going on…

    Yeah and I’m from the UK and to say we cant dress…well….do ya research dude!

  • JAY STONE

    Now that G-unit is over it`s blackwallstreet time bitch.

  • http://www.picturemedia.co.za I RUN THIS..

    …lol..He’s not gonna shut down, come on now, yal know better.Chances are he’s gonna go on his own or get silent partners..TI’s like Roca Wear did years ago..

  • latino heat

    cosign everything Vicious Seiger said. all the artists he mentioned had clothing lines that ran for maybe 2 years and that was it. and to Flymasta don’t forget nelly had Vokal for dude’s but since it’s only the females that fuck with nelly only applebottoms made money. i heard big boi say that all u need is 3 years of a successful clothing line and you’d make all the money u need. so if that’s true 50 aint mad at all. he had a better run than most. but seriously nobody’s fucked with g unit clothes for the last 2 or 3 years. all these lines are designed by old ass white dudes that have probably never heard and can’t stand hip hop. have ya’ll ever seen the head designer of rocawear? he’s old as shit. there just in it for the money.

  • FORTY

    JUST BECAUSE YALL LAME ASS HATA’S DIDN’T WEAR THE SHIT DOESN’T MEAN THE NEXT MAN DIDN’T. SOMEBODY HAD TO BE WEARING THE SHIT SINCE THEY STAYED IN BUSINESS THIS DAMN LONG!!! FIFTY DAMN SURE AIN’T GONE BE HURTIN FROM THIS LOST.

        “We run this…” huh? Sounds an awful lot like American slang.

        I fucks with everybody from everywhere. I was just in Paris, Venice and Rome in November. But, nobody gonna start talkin sideways about the states.

    Dont care. I would never rock a G-Unit shirt or anything.

  • http://xXLMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

    Who cares if yall rock it or not. 50 made his money from the brand now he can sell it. Just like FUBU, MECCA, and all other clothing brands do. You pimp it for what it’s worth then u keep it moving.

  • dors

    lemme run that sh*t, then it’ll be something… otherwise, shutting it down is a good idea…

  • flyy

    i think that g-unit clothing is tight. yah they have had some wack stuff but so has errone else. is jus part of the industry u try new things and get a result and learn. maybe 50 has had a few too many learning experiences i dnt knw. all im sayin is that i think if 50 went independent he might hav a better chance and maybe he’ll surprise yall and blow up!

  • king DAVIS

    I ROC G-UNIT JEANS CUZ THEY COMFORTABLE BUT OTHER THAN THAT I CANT SAY THAT I ROC HIS SHIT I WOULD IF IT DIDNT SAY G-UNIT ON THA FRUNT THAT SHIT LOOKS DUM

    fuckin haters

  • http://xxlmag.com The_Truth

    **SOME OF YAW ARE CONFUSED**

    How is not supporting 50 a sign of “hating on a brotha?”. . .50 is the PERFECT example of the Willie Lynch syndrome! He’s done a better job than the white man could ever do by dividing &hating on any black succesful artist. . .he’s been brought-out by the white man &has attempted to destruct many black careers out of sheer egotistical enjoyment. He’s seen smiling with white men &kissing Paris Hilton, then disses countless black celebrities.

    With that said. . .phUCK ANYTHING HE’S INVOLVED IN!!! HE THE POSTER BOY FOR THE 21st CENTURY SELLOUT!!!!

    No wonder G-Unit Clothes can be found in any discount store marked 75% off. . .

  • http://www.myspace.com/maxprofit Max Profit

    I don’t care how much or little 50 makes off of the clothes. The bottom line is that the stuff horrible.

  • fireforreal

    Wow You couldn’t have said it better.

  • Ryan

    Hahaha! G Unit is white trash gear. G Unit t shirt, Shady Unlimited hoodie, Southpole jeans, Busted up white on white’s or some huge ass and a lime green sweaty ass Yankees hat. Straight up hicks rock shit like that.

  • s.H.A.K. N3W

    AKADEMIKZ ALLDAY.

  • real talk @ the truth

    you got a point my dude. But 50 dont do it for the white man, he’s just greedy. He wants to be the center of attention forever. He cant do it out of talent no more so he does it out of controversy. thats what rappers who are falling off do. and the sad part is it works for most of em. Im not saying 50′s music is terrible or nothing. “center of attention only last 15 min. Its not how long you had it its what you did with it” And he aint doing shit but coming up off other peoples down falls.
    real talk

  • FlyReign

    yes g-unit has haad some ugly stuff but so has errone else. its just part of the industry, you try things and learn. maybe 50 has had too many experiences and has yet to learn i dnt knw. all im saying is that i think it would change if 50 went independent with the line.

  • http://sfa S on my Chest

    It’s BWS time? Come on! The niggah ain’t done shit with BWS really since he left the unit. I was waiting for the shit to blow but it never really got past the simmering stage. In fact did he even bother to promote that shit on his own album? Do I really need to say anymore?

    Stop hating. It obviously sells to someone otherwise he wouldn’t be that damn fucking rich!

  • ukkh

    kev lomax u a idiot! i aint gon claim dat england is runnin fashion but its for damn sure dat america aint wen it cums 2 clothes!! we all borrow from each other for styles! an wtf are u onabowt american slang ur speakin fukin english!!

    • Kev Lomax

      Before you comment on somebody’s shit why don’t you fuckin read it. And I’m an idiot?

      I never said American fashion ran shit, dickhead. Why don’t read the entire thread before jumpin in some shit.

      And as for me speakin English, that was about the lamest, bitch made point you could’ve made. There’s obviously a difference between the two (American and UK). For instance, “muppet” isn’t quite that offensive where I’m from.

      These two mufuckas talkin bout we bite off London and I was clearly pointing out that they’re talkin like we do, cause they got that shit from Hip-Hop. Incase the shit has slipped your fuckin mind, you’re surfing a site dedicated to a culture that was created in the U.S.

      Now to be totally honest, I could give two shits who listens, likes, talks, walks, dresses and acts like they’re down with Hip-Hop or where they’re from. But, I’m proud of where I’m from just like you probably are too. I’m just not gonna let some dumb fuck start talkin like we bite shit off London, when it is absolutely not true. Especially, when the dudes facts were fucked up. And Europeans call Americans arrogant?

      In the end I just wasted 4 minutes of my life thinkin about this dumb shit and defending it. Who cares?

      Nice talkin with you chap, now step the fuck off.

  • dozer

    respect to fifty man hes doin it big n his clothes racked in 250 million in sales ppl only hate em cuz they r jealous he has the number one rap dynasty in the game (mop-mob-young buck-lil scrappy n freeway affilates to g-unit) y hate he will be around 4 ever unless sum jealous hater shoots em lol

  • mac

    wo ur all stupid so wat if it closes n who cares if it doesnt close if u roc it if u dont u dont

  • Jack

    the close is ugly but i don’t think it’ll shut down 50 will get someone else to sponsor it or fund it himself he’s a brilliant business man he’ll think of something since that seems like part of his demise if it goes under it just looks bad for him. especially since all these little dudes poppin up with there own clothing lines.

  • dark vanilla

    I’m gonna make two points:
    1. Only 12 year old white boys wear G-Unit clothing. Seriously, who wears that garbage except G-Unit dickrydahs.
    2. America>>>>Europe.

  • gkid12345

    the kicks was hot when they first came out and the fitted’s are aiight but i dont think 50 makes much bread off it.

  • http://youtuberecessing.blogspot.com Leonor Belcher

    If I had a nickel for each time I came here… Amazing read.

  • Lil Bit

    Word up! I didn’t know they were still on the racks. It just may very well be the best thing for G-Unit. Either shut down or re-create the look. Fashion is always changing.
