Tony Yayo.

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. Now, Yayo raps in The Game's "Hate It Or Love It" (Remix), that was released on 50 Cent's newest album "The Massacre". Also, in that song The Game says "We had the whole crowd screaming: Free Yayo!". While he was in prison, his daughter, Maniyah was born in 2003.

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 called Thoughts Of A Predicate Felon coming up in 2005. Anticipation has grown since new tracks are hitting the streets:

- "So Seductive" featuring 50 Cent; #76 US

- "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 known for his clever rhyming and by his own words: for being the "Talk Of New York" (T.O.N.Y.).

Free Yayo

A movement iniatated by G-unit with the intention of creating a support network for the imprisioned Tony Yayo. The movement got to be much larger than any member of G-unit had predicted and resulted in the sale of clothing and accesories with written 'Free Yayo' on them. The movement was responsible for the excitment and anticipation created for the realese of the imprisioned G-unit member. As a result, Tony Yayo's appearences on underground mixtapes greatly boosted sales of DJs such as DJ clue and DJ whoo kid.
