Word last week of a G-Unit and The Game reunion may have been prematurely reported, as Game himself has shot down rumors of an official reconciliation between he and 50 Cent. Hip-hop optimists were given good reason to hope for the best, as Game’s Blood Money Entertainment signee Pharaoh Jackson posted a video with Game and Dre, writing, "The BEATLES AKA 'G-UNIT' are joining forces again.”

On a recent video shoot for his song "Roped Off," Game addressed the reunion rumors, saying that it isn't likely to work out. "Yeah, I don't know where that came from, man, but I can't see that happening no time in the near future," he said. "He doin' his thing man, I’m doin' my thing. Banks, Buck, Yayo, they all doin' they thing. Everybody just doin' they thing. Positivity is all love these days. 2016, we tryna keep everybody alive out here."

Lending some credence to the idea was the fact that Game posed with G-Unit general Lloyd Banks back in February while the two were both in Dubai. 50 Cent later called the picture an act of publicity and promotion. While Game and 50 aren't planning to link up themselves any time soon, the former did offer praise for 50's Effen vodka, suggesting that at least he doesn't harbor any ill will.

Watch his interview up above. With Puffy's Bad Boy reunion show turning from concert event to full-fledged tour, nostalgia is at an all time high, with G-Unit hopefuls unlikely to get their wish any time soon, at least according to The Game.
