What's your life like? Tony Yayo's is real. G-Unit's incarcerated scarface, who's bounced in and out of federal penitentiaries during 50 Cent's ascension to the top of the pops, is real, like milk. And his debut album, undoubtedly the most long coming and anticipated release from G-Unit, Thoughts Of A Predicate Felon, bleeds this reality. "My album is all fact no fiction," says the 26 year-old Yayo, "Everything on there is things I've done or seen--as a matter of fact, most of the album was written in jail and that's why the aggressive records are so hard." Replete with brooding, violent beats, courtesy of super-producers like Dr. Dre, Eminem and Havoc of Mobb Deep, and vicious punch lines, Thoughts promises to be G-Unit's most street release. "I been with 50 since day one, so I've studied the way that he makes records," he says, "So I know you gotta make the club records and the records for girls, but I also know that what makes G-Unit G-Unit is we make the best street records in the industry."

Muze PNote On 50 Cent posse G Unit's platinum first release, 2004's BEG FOR MERCY, Tony Yayo appears as a ghost, pictured in the flap but unable to rap on the record due to his incarceration on a weapons charge. When Yayo was freed from prison he cut his debut solo record, THOUGHTS OF A PREDICATE FELON. It bears the mark of a man releasing a lifetime of pent-up rhymes in a torrent, yet he delivers his raps with the kind of deliberation that helped made Biggie Smalls a household name.
Muze PNote The album opens on a note befitting its title, as Yayo spins a grim tale of vengeance on "Homicide," followed by glimpses of violent autobiography on "It Is What It Is" and a scathing indictment of snitches on "Tattle Teller." Despite his harsh presence, Yayo excels on tracks of love and desire, as on the soulful slow jam, "Curious," and the brash club crawler, "So Seductive." However, these respites from the dark are rare, as Yayo and the ever-ready Eminem make plain on "Drama Setter," where Yayo's disturbingly focused lyrics are consummate tension builders. THOUGHTS OF A PREDICATE FELON has the feel of a horror movie, but the kind where the terrors are the products of a tortured mind.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (No. 984, p.152)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...Like every G Unit release, FELON wraps its gun violence and over-the-top boasts in opulent, catchy streetscapes..."

Vibe (pp.143-144)
- 3.5 discs out of 5 - "[T]hough Yayo holds his own playing the role of the uberthug dominating the club, it's his incarcerated Scarface mind-set that makes the strongest impression."


Tony Yayo

During the mid-nineties while 50 made inroads to the industry, working with Jam Master Jay and then the Trackmasters, Yayo got his rep up on the battle circuit bringing it to other Queens rappers like local stars, the Lost Boyz.. "I was taking everybody out back then," he remembers. But just when 50 was about make his leap to stardom he was gunned down with the infamous 9 slugs. But the two, now joined by young boy Lloyd Banks, turned the seeming tragedy to triumph. "As soon as 50 recovered we went to work on the mixtapes," says Yayo who loyally played his position despite the seemingly insurmountable opposition against them, "and that's when he created G-Unit." The trio went to war with the industry that was afraid to touch them and recorded "Bad News", Yayo's first official vocal appearance, and then went to work on 50 Cent Is The Future, which secured Fif his fortuitous Shady/Aftermath deal. Yayo stood out on the early mixtapes due to his unbridled energy and laugh out loud punchlines, which anchored the nimble wordplay of Banks and sing-songy fluidness of 50.
