Tony Yayo

Biography

What's your life like? Tony Yayo's is real. G-Unit's incarcerated scarface, who's bounced in and out of federal penitentiaries during 50 Cent's ascension to the top of the pops, is real, like milk. And his debut album, undoubtedly the most long coming and anticipated release from G-Unit, Thoughts Of A Predicate Felon, bleeds this reality. "My album is all fact no fiction," says the 26 year-old Yayo, "Everything on there is things I've done or seen--as a matter of fact, most of the album was written in jail and that's why the aggressive records are so hard." Replete with brooding, violent beats, courtesy of super-producers like Dr. Dre, Eminem and Havoc of Mobb Deep, and vicious punch lines, Thoughts promises to be G-Unit's most street release. "I been with 50 since day one, so I've studied the way that he makes records," he says, "So I know you gotta make the club records and the records for girls, but I also know that what makes G-Unit G-Unit is we make the best street records in the industry."
