Stunters: G-Unit Riderz & 50 Cent
What do you get when you combine death-defying motorcycle stunts, a multi-cultural band of brothers (blood & otherwise), Lloyd Banks’ "Hunger for More 2″ album, & a co-sign by none other than 50 Cent? You get the G-Unit Riderz.
Officially part of the G-Unit brand, the G-Unit Riderz are a multi-cultural team of motorcycle stunt riders who are personally co-signed by none other than 50 Cent himself.
As 50 Cent’s oldest childhood friends, leaders/brothers B JAY & Moe Santiago have taken the G-Unit Riderz all over the world to exhibit death-defying stunts that have impressed audiences all over the world.
Of course, the connection to one of the most successful rap brands hasn’t hurt their cause, either. "We have a lot of style and swag to us, as far as our style of riding goes," said B JAY Santiago.
"That, combined with our humorous personalities and the connection to one of the most recognizable brands in the world – G-UNIT – and the support of a superstar like 50 Cent, has been nothing short of remarkable."
The Riderz ride Kawasaki 636’s, Honda F4i’s, and Yamaha R6’s. The stunt bikes are all customized with G-Unit logos, and are custom equipped with crash cages, third rear handbrakes, rear wheel sprockets, and modified handlebars.
In addition to performances in many parts of the United States, the Caribbean, and Japan, the G-Unit Riderz are going to be filming for a new reality show, set to begin filming in Spring 2011.
Moreover, the G-Unit Riderz and 50 Cent have been in talks for a movie co-starring the Riderz, and the Riderz are also hosting a custom-car DVD (release date TBA), for which they hope to be traveling the globe to film.
