Yayo Talks Being Dropped By Interscope

Posted By on May 17, 2010

     Getting "fired" in a way is a hard thing for anyone, and in the music business being dropped by a label is close to the same thing. Tony Yayo says when he was dropped by Interscope Records, it wasn't easy to take. “When we got dropped from Interscope it was like, ‘Aww, man,’” he shared. “It was like you know a crushing thing. You know, when you used to being on top and now you feel like, for me, you’re feeling like you on the bottom.”

      Yayo isn't throwing in the towel just yet, the long-time G-Unit member is coming back. “God works in mysterious ways and good things is happening now,” he said. “The new opportunities are coming. I don’t wanna talk too much about them either ’cause I don’t wanna ruffle any feathers or anything, but 50 is definitely bringing G-Unit back to where it needs to be."

      “We was gonna go the independent route, ’cause we put out ‘Beamer, Benz or Bentley,’ all that’s independently,” he added. “That’s with no machine.” But it seems like 50 has something else up his sleeve.“When I got dropped, I’m not gonna front. I was a little down about it,” he explained. “It’s not like it was because of the money, because Interscope, they advanced me for my second album. So I got money that I didn’t even deserve…but it’s just the whole thing of being dropped and everybody looking at you.” Yayo's  will debut his acting career in "S.W.A.T.: Fire Fight" soon.
