50 Cent Expected His Tony Yayo Relationship To Be Similar To Jay Z & Kanye West's

50 Cent recalls being a fan of Hip Hop when artists wrote about their lifestyle and personal experiences.

Queens rapper 50 Cent’s commentary on his fellow G-Unit members, particularly Tony Yayo, continued this month as he spoke on the sense of entitlement some artists have, during an interview with Philadelphia-based radio station Hot 107.9.

50 named Yayo as an artist who he believes felt he was owed something or should have been given freely to thanks to 50 Cent’s success.

He also revealed that at the start of their music careers, he expected the relationship between himself and Yayo to be similar to that of Jay Z and Kanye West’s.

“I think that his frustration when he gets a little frustrated it goes, ‘Or you could just give it to me.’ Like ‘Why do I have to do it if you can just give it to me,’” 50 Cent said. “When it’s like, ‘But who’s gonna give it to me?’ I gotta work for everything that I have…He had an easier perception of how things actually took place…What were my expectations? I was expecting possibly for us to have that—what Jay Z experienced with Kanye.”

In addition to Yayo, 50 Cent says Olivia and Young Buck were two artists who he also gave freely to. But in the end, the G-Unit helmsman says he was out of $250,000 due to a loan he gave Young Buck and $600,000 for a home he bought Olivia.

“When me and Buck fell out, he owed me $250,000,” he said. “Let’s say that G-Unit member owes me a quarter of a million dollars. When Olivia, when we ended up resolving that she had a home that I purchased for $600,000…When I’m constantly having to face the reality of how people actually conduct themselves in business, it doesn’t make any sense. Like when you say, ‘Because we’ve been friends I should just give it to you.’ It’s like they really feel like ‘Yo, come on you got it. Just give it to me.’”

Towards the end of his interview with Hot 107.9, 50 Cent was asked how he felt about the lack of genuine artists in Hip Hop. He said that artists portraying something that they aren’t has become the norm in today’s music.

“I don’t think it means anything anymore,” the rapper said. “In the very beginning when I fell in love with it, it was everything. It was important that you actually was writing something that related to your lifestyle or your actual experience. And it was what made you special as an artist. You didn’t get a chance to just say and do anything. But now I don’t think the audience that consumes it actually is aware of it. So they just accept what sounds good.”

Although 50 Cent has addressed the status of his relationship with those in G-Unit on several occasions, he’s become even more vocal in his commentary about the group following remarks Tony Yayo made in February.

According to AllHipHop.com, in a handful of comments made on Instagram, Yayo informed fans that G-Unit was not together and that 50 Cent was not “rocking” with him or Lloyd Banks.

    "but give 50 cent credit for putting his niggas on and cashing the fuck in when he was hot. he could have put out the massacre before that g-unit album" But that was at a time when CD's were flying off shelves. G Unit success was inevitable. MMG has done all this with low sales, bad WOM, and bootlegging. It may be easier to praise the niggaz that went platinum, but I'll buck the trend and praise the niggaz who parlayed their dreams all by going gold.

      Only a fool would have dropped the Massacre before the G Unit album, you out out the Gunit album and you set up solo albums from Yayo and Banks to make you even more money since they are signed to your label fool. Never take 50Crnts advice on running a label, look at the careers of his artists right now they went and signed with Koch/E1 just to eat. That label is dead.

    "Niggas defending Gunplay for being a career weed carrier LOL." People pick up phrases and slang words and use them out of context, especially online. We used to call the hanger-ons in the crew "weed carriers" because they were unsigned guys in the entourage that werent involved in the music process. I dont know if its an attention thing or ignorance.

      50 Cent says he has already started working on the follow up to his current "Before I Self Destruct" album, an album he is called "Black Magic." The G-Unit general says he is working outside of hip-hop, perhaps some techno-type songs. "I actually recorded three songs," Fif revealed in a recent interview. "I had this idea, I went to a nightclub, afterparty, and it was a different kind of music going on there a little while before I actually got there. You know they play your music when you come, but the music they played before, they started playing material I created, which was more uptempo, more dance. I wanted to make a song like that so I went to the studio because I'm traveling with my live band, I took the band with me and we sequenced it and recorded the actual record while I was out there. I did two of the songs I had production for and I had been writing those songs for a while so I finished them and actually recorded them while I was out hereBlack Magic project, I'm excited about it. It has a different vibe, I won't allow myself to be placed in a box where I can only do one style or do one kind of musicIf they can understand how I enjoy different genres of music, for the people who have various tastes, they'll really like it."

      Depends on what you consider a flop.

When I first read this I wanted to react in anger and immediatley respond to let the OP know that what I read effected me so here is what I want to say. JayZ may play the high road but he isnt the best example to use due to his fallouts with Jaz-O and Dame Dash. If you want to see true loyalty then look at De La Soul and the Roots. Black Thought could have gone solo a long time ago and Pos Da Noose could have too. Memphis Bleek has a couple Gold albums released on his own label (Get Low) so he is not just another sidekick.

    C'mon, everybody knew when Yayo first came out that it was the first and the last time he gets a release date from a major label. The skill gap between him and other members was always noticeable, but their albums made it crystal clear. But it's not just about that, he lack every other aspect that could make him interesting as a rapper. Weed carriers / hype mans (even if they have strong vocals) should stay in their lane.

Time has changed, back in the day 1million copies used to be Gold, when sales slumped they made 500k Gold. 50 sold well in the past based on a couple of factors 1. His Rap skills-His back story 2. Affiliation to Dr Dre n Eminem 3. Universal Records(Interscope Parent Company which distributes like 55% of music worldwide).Universal has close to 300 offices worldwide 4.

      Those numbers prove what we have been saying forever: 50 Cent and Gunit were an overhyped Interscope creation that was more hype than substance who got lucky to ride the coattails of the Eminemn hype when Eminem was at his peak. JayZ had a #1 album on Billboard back in 1998 and he just had a #1 album on Billboard in 2013 50 had a #1 album on BillBoard back in 2005 and hasn't had one since..... 15+ years and JayZ is still on top while 50 fell off after only 3 50 only has 3 Platinum solo albums JayZ has 12 platinum solo albums... Numbers don't lie. JayZ had his first Top 10 single back in 1998 and another Top 10 single in 2013 50cent had his first Top 10 single back in 2003 and his last Top 10 single in 2007 Hype like MC Hammer wont last but a true artist has longevity in his career. This dude made a bogus list for JayZ and excluded Kanye and Camron but then he puts Game on the 50Cent list. LOL. JayZ has 52 Grammy nominations with 19 wins 50 Cent has 19 Grammy nominations with only one win. JayZ is a true artist self made who came in the game with no co signs and crawled his way to the top and has stayed on top for almost 20 years, 50 had the biggest two cosigns in the history of rap with Dre and Eminem and in less than 7 years he was no longer a platinum selling artist. Numbers can be skewed and manipulated to suit a persons agenda but the number that comes to mind when we think of JayZ is the number 1996 when the God Hov first debuted his classic.

    50 is more like Nelly and Tony Yayo is more like Murphy Lee, G Unit records is were artists go to die. Jay-Z and Kanye are icons while 50 was just another MC Hammer who was huge and then fell off after the actual audience got bored with him.

  • ROC is runnin this rap sh1t

    This Nascar nigga must be smoking Meth. JayZ and Kanye?! NEVER. Nope not even close. JayZ mentored Kanye and taught Kanye how to be a Boss and that's why Kanye has Good Music Records with relevant artists like Big Sean, Pusha T, Jon Legend, and Kid Cudi dropping albums. JayZ taught Kanye how to build his own brand outside of Roc A Fella because thats what a real man is supposed to do for his brother, JayZ didnt want some yes-man chauffeur type dude up under him he wanted a Capo to his Don.

      yall faggots take shit too literal. he meant he wanted tony yayo to be a self sustaining artist standing on his own and running his own company. no one said he had to be the next kanye or that 50 cent sees himself as jay-z.

    • POPE

      nah kanye wanted to be a boss from jump. yayo aint got that in em. he's just a good soldier.

    Get rich or die trying = 8 million (2003) The Massacere = 5 million Curtis = 1 million Before I Self Destruct = 475,000 (2009) The buffoon lost over 7.5 million fans in 7 years, each year of his career he lost millions of fans. Every album that 50cent dropped sold HALF or worse than half of what the one sold previous. No artist in the history of rap music has fallen off harder, his G-Unit records is virtually dead and he hasn't released an album in 5 years while his enemy Game who helped dismantle his label and damage his career is dropping albums every year. KANYE WON!

      He sold 8 mill on hype, and The Massacre sold on being at the top of the rap game and dissing everyone (Jada, Joe, Nas, Game in the Piggybank video) He didn't 'lose' 7.5 mill fans, as most of these were fairweather dick riders that only bought the album because it was hot at the moment. How much was Power of the Dollar projected to sell? His core fan base is nowhere near the size of Kanye, Jay, Drake, Wayne, Em, so that is why he is suffering in sales. If he worked on that he would still be selling well.

    50 is high. How the hell u and Yayo gone have a Jay / Kayne relationship when that nigga can't rap. You know he can't stand on his own in this game. Yall needed a Jay / Bleek relationship when Jay said as long as he living Bleek is a millionaire. He held his end and rode for u, u dropped the ball and turned your back.

    Name dropping isnt just about being an attention whore or an obsessed Dickrider, sometimes its strategy because the names are bigger than your own. To look at Kanyes mentions at @KanyeWest and look at how many times obsessed fanboys drop his name.

The guy you labeled a "fake homosexual midget blood gangster" was on 50Cents BOSS Emienmes album while 50 wasnt which say a lot. The guy you labeled an "obese corrections officer" had 50Cents BOSS Dr Dre on his album and on film giving him 100K Hublot watches on his B Day which says a lot. Jimmy Iovine who is 50s BOSS made sure that French Montana and Diddy have ditributiin for Bad Boy records on Interscope which says a lot.
