  • windeez yosh

    i dont know why everyone hates on yayo so much........i dont really enjoy the slower flow he uses now but this is a hot mixtape with features and hot beats....stop hating if this was wacka or gucci everyone would be gun riding the shit out this song...this shit is raw just cuz you cant snap your fingers to it....thanks yayo keep making shit like this....that snapping slurring rap will fade out

    • Alex_P

      Serious, man? This isn't raw; it's sloppy. Raw is early Nas and Wu-tang, music born from poverty. This asshole's an ex-con with rich friends, spewing passionless tripe to net more money for his conglomerate. I call bullshit, and so should everyone else. Gucci also sucks too, regardless of what the Pitchfork hipsters declare.

    • !!!!!

      it's not hatin if it's true. yayo, waka flocka and gucci mane are ALL wack.

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    DAMN THIS SHIT IS HOT.................YAYO is top 5 in New York as we speak................ 50, JAY, BANKS, YAYO, FAB top 5 in New York right now

  • DUBEM

    G-unit is just trash now... 50 still gettin that money but it's sad how wack they music got

  • als_360

    this retarded nigga probably can't spell obama

  • em is life

    i need a new trash bag for all that shit. GARBAGE

  • geico lizard

    50 cent is a Republican so he likes to make fun of President Obama. This was a chance for Interscope to use the Presidents Name to get more downloads and views.

    • jeremiahftw

      50 just said that out of sheer spite. He was bitter that hip hop fans were rejecting him and his music, so that just was his petty way of flipping off the fans.

  • datingblack

    Wowwwwwwwwwww!!!Recently, I came across a hot military dating site. ----**Black military friends dot come**---- There are many sassy ladies and handsome military guys seeking fun, friendship, love ,marriage and even more!!!!! Maybe you wanna check out or tell your friends.

  • why

    Obama should sue the flip out of 50Cent and Tony Yayo for using his name on this wackness. With all that money can't he atleast get a decent ghostwriter? Some better concepts? Do people actually buy his albums? Sad times!!!

  • ....

    Terrible video- terrible hook- video hookers ( payed for by 50 cent) - lazy video + money shots ( courtesy of 50 cent) and an obvious hotel (payed for by 50 cent). Cheap + Lazy = Failure. (PS. 50 cent cant direct)

  • MadEnvy

    Welcome to Yayo's Minstrel Show...Where the black faces tries to fulfill what whitey already stereotype us as. All we want is money, masta, hoes, no respect. You want more shiny shit on your car, black face? You want more ice on that chain, black face? I dare you to say something smart, black face? This video is straight buffoonery and needs to leave Obama's name out of it. We don't need ignorant niggas representing Obama.

  • Alex_P

    This is easily among the worst videos I've ever seen. This makes Immortal's Call of the Wintermoon look like Thriller in comparison. (If you don't know who Immortal are, check it out. It's... European.) This guy just sort of stares at the camera, shifts back and forth, taps ass and mumble-syncs along to his uninspired studio delivery. It doesn't help that the song is terrible. I love the money shots in this. They seem to be such an afterthought. This video looks like it was directed by a person who hates rap. That's probably the case. Lose the panoramic shots, but if you must have them then for the love of whatever fucking deity you worship PLEASE don't shake the fucking camera around. This video would fail a high school class.

  • I-rep

    Hey yal gotta check out this new artist "Rick Jay aka Yo/Conchus". He's got a song called "Dying Inside"!! Google Em!!!

  • jeremiahftw

    obviously this dude is only rapping because he has nothing else to do with his life. He clearly has no passion for it.. just doing the shit because his best friend blew up and got rich off of it. He's an ex con trying to find purpose and happiness beyond that of monetary gain, which is never enough to satisfy the human soul... Add all those factors together and this is what you get... bad videos and even worse video's.. All the black people I know are embarrassed of peopel like tony yayo. The only thing that baffles me is how this guy hasn't even remotely improved after 6 years of fucking around with this rap shit. Human's naturally adapt right? but he still hasn't.... wtf? Yayo it might be time to turn to god for direction. This rap shit was never for you, and it never will be. It's bad for you and you're bad for it.

  • deesure

    yayo is a big fucking joke just play the background nigger.

  • Potato w/ Jive

    So this video "directed by" 50 Cent translates to: Rent a hotel suite, pay for a few hookers, set up a few money shots with...money and set up the remaining shots in front of the cornball artwork in the suite? Cmon man even IM not that lazy. This video is extra fail.

  • jesterdx

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha 50 dont waste ur £££ on this fuckin fool... u shud have got cory gunz or papoose & dropped this lame!

  • Ceazar

    Ok here's wht ill do 4 Tony yayo, I'll fix him for 2 beef squashes, Kanye West and Rick Ross, yall record 4 diss tracks send them 2 each other, declare it constructive critcism and play each other on xbox 360 on the web. Now tony had 1 of the hardest quotes" Tony get the Yayo" heres all u have 2 do is change the food u eat and when u eat, eat ramen noodles like water, that was easy

  • Rapologist

    Damn this is sad. I think I can explain Tony Yayo's entire rap career.. Yayo and 50 are so tight, when 50 blew up rapping, Yayo asked him if he could do it with him. 50 couldn't say no, and signed him. Simple as that.. If anyone actually believes this is good rap, they're fooling themselves. 50's first album was one of the best albums ever. He lost that hunger. Same with everyone in G-Unit. Everyone has money, what makes you different from the next mother fucker rappin about money. Dude needs to study a Nas album, or T.I.'s Paper Trail.

  • Gangster Iz Dead

    People Are Growing Up And Have Left That Drug Dealing, Gangster, Loser Sh$t Behind. Obama Stands For Education, Acountability and Excellence. How Does This Song Equate With That???? G-Unit Stay Losing. If 50 Thinks He Blew Money With Olivia..........

    • fukwethebest

      man tell that to rick ross cause he still talk about that same shit these niggas got money dont hate at least these niggas real not trying to be something they aint

  • Ah hell

    "Fuck is you rhyming about, your 30 just gettin' in the game, you should be trying to get out!" -Cyssero (dissin' Yayo). Fuck tony gayo.

  • dmack

    • Dfrance

      Man this song has absolutely nothing to do with love for Obama are you an idiot? And Jeezy's song was a joke too.

    • thizzledance

      Jeezy's song was an embarrassment too, even if it was well intentioned. listen to what he's sayin in the hook. And I'm a big Nas fan but that joint was wack

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    G-UNIT TO THE END

  • blockbully

    Really tony yayo! how many niggaz is gona pay attention to this? the only niggaz thats gonna be payin attention to this bull is the g-unit stans. yayo has been a fuckin wreck since he came out. he has no rappin skills no type of flow to look forward to and no swag to wat he does. he needs to just stop rappin and do sumthin else wit his self 4reaal.

  • thizzle dance

    For the love of God, Yayo, please don't make a song with Obama's name in it. 50 and Yayo making a track called Obama will be an embarrassment for black people. Dudes holding a half of coke in the video right there... NO

    • FRANCO

      Of course I read the fuckingg article. how else am I supposed to draw a reasonable opinion about something numg nuts? I hate dumb ass people who dont know how to defend their views logically, so instead say that paying attention to something you may dislike is some kind of contradiction. Would you prefer if I were a troll and just typed "fake and gay" without any sort of objectivity?

    • Ah hell

      Gayo is holding a bag of coke on the video, you don't have to actually click the video to see that. Fuck Tony Gayo.

    • CUTTBOY

      Yet, @Franco,You can't stand Yayo...But you read the article,watched the video,and took time to comment.....smh

    • franco

      co sign. yayo has never made anything worth hearing. he by himself makes me want to put my head down in shame,.. let alone when he's trying to come off serious addressing the president. Just please be ignorant and embarrassing in ur own name, dont throw the president under the bus with ur wackness,. thanks
