4. 50 has a history of helping New York acts succeed.
Okay, okay, so M.O.P. might dispute this! But 50 signed Mobb Deep to a deal back in 2005 and helped them put out their 2006 Blood Money album when their career was at a bit of a standstill. He's also overseen the successful output of Lloyd Banks and turned Tony Yayo into a minor rap star in addition to releasing his own albums. If Kim did get into the fold, we'd also have an increased interest in hearing another New York-centric G-Unit project, which could help strengthen the group after 2008's lackluster T.O.S. (Terminate On Sight) release.
