Tony Yayo Speaks On 50 Cents New Movie & G-Unit’s New Album

Posted By on January 11, 2008

Tony Yayo is speaking out about everything going on in the G-Unit camp, just a day after his court appearance yesterday where he feels the charges will and should be dropped against him. The G-Unit rapper is getting ready to go to the Cannes Film Festival for a screening of 50's new movie, "Righteous Kill." As you've probably heard, it also stars Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.

"Who wouldn't want to meet De Niro and Pacino?" he laughed. "I'm a fan. I went to couple of photo shoots and a couple of things."  On the music side of things, the entire G-Unit are working on a new group album, the forever-in-the-works Lock and Load.  "Me, [Lloyd] Banks and [Young] Buck went to 50's house and was working," he said. "We got a couple joints coming from [Dr.] Dre, Eminem. We're just working. Fif is still working — he's working all the time. Oh, man. 50's a beast in that studio. You never know, it could be his last day [recording,] and he'll write the biggest record he ever did in his life. Or it can be his first day. When you look at 50, he has spurts. He has moments when he can write incredible records. … He can come with that two or three big records, then fall back, then come with more." Lock and Load doesn't have a release date yet.
