TONY YAYO
He got his first break with a very small-unknown record label, First Choice. There, Tony rapped on local mix tapes and earned neighborhood respect as a good rapper. Since he knew 50 cent, he hooked up with him in about 1998, when 50 cent was signed to Columbia records. 50 took Tony under his wing and brought him places. Around this time 50 cent shot his first video in Cancun and took Tony along with him. Here Tony says, "I seen people wearing houses around their necks and BenZ's on their wrist." In Cancun Tony realized that the entertainment business was definitely real. He realized that these rappers were making more money or just as much as big time drug dealers. He realized selling drugs had no future for him, but death or jail. Tony realized 50 cent was the only one around the block he looked up to that was still around to enjoy and talk about his life. This was the change that Tony wanted, and is now pursuing. Currently Tony is one of the hottest underground street rappers on their verge of signing to a major label. He sticks with 50 cent because he knows 50 cent is definitely going places and is a great mentor to the game. Their g-unit cd is taking them to the top. Tony feels he is still a hustler but with music now. He says, " I'm not trying to be 30 still on the strip, I'm trying to be 30 filthy rich." He feels that through the music industry he will stay young because there are always new aspiring young individuals that will keep him motivated to work hard and do what he does best. Tony says, rapping has got to be the way."
