Tony Yayo is an American rapper. He is a member of the G-Unit crew. He was imprisoned on weapons charges in early 2003 and as such he only appears twice on the G-unit album Beg For Mercy. He was released January 7, 2004, but was arrested the following day for possessing a forged passport. On the track Stunt 101 fellow rapper Young Buck says "free yayo", also in the video for that same track there's a "free Yayo" grafiti. Yayo has been released since May 26, 2004.
He has recorded with such hip-hop artists as Lil' Flip, Eminem and Dr. Dre, as well as with his original group, G-Unit. Just like the G-Unit's first lady Olivia, Tony Yayo has a Solo album coming up in 2005. Anticipation has grown since new tracks are hitting the streets:
- "So Seductive" featuring 50 Cent,
- "Live By The Gun" produced by Dr. Dre,
- The mixtape "Tony's Home" featuring many of his previous work, jail freestyles, interviews, an Olivia/Lloyd Banks collaboration and a 50 Cent radio intro.
Tony Yayo is know for his clever rhyming and by his own words: for being the "Talk Of New York" (T.O.N.Y.).
