Appearing on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, G-Unit member Tony Yayo made it very clear that The Game does not define the legacy of G-Unit.
In a recent clip released on My Expert Opinion podcast, Tony Yayo is not feeling any questions related to his former G-Unit member, The Game. According to Yayo, it was The Game who “bit the hand” that fed him, as a result put a whole in his own pockets.
“At the end of the day, we f****d up a lot of money because we could have went overseas,” he said. “Without 50, Game, Banks, Buck, Yayo. We could have went out and made millions overseas. But [he] started the G-Unot. When I was on that balcony in Battery Park and I heard 50 giving him all those records, I’m looking at him like, ‘You giving him all this sh*t bro?’”
It has been well documented that The Game’s debut album on Aftermath records ‘The Documentary,’ initially sounded like a duet project featuring 50 Cent. Fif helped The Game with many of the hooks heard on the album, to the point, where Nate Dogg was called on to balance out Game’s studio album and replace 50 Cent.
Tony Yayo says it all came down to jealousy and differences between two coasts. ‘You gotta think about this, you got L.A. n***as blowing up an East Coast n***a. What you think n***as in the studio was saying? We New York n***as. ‘You gotta blow up West Coast n***a, the West Coast the best coast cuz,” Yayo continued. “When sh*t goes sour and the money slow up, n***as start tripping. Never bite the hand that feeds you. What’s up with loyalty, homie? You know the era n***as came up in, man. Loyalty is everything.”
As the interview continued, so did The Game questions from Math Hoffa which annoyed Tony Yayo. “Y’all keep acting like Game is the real legacy of G-Unit,” he replied. “No, it’s Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and 50 Cent, n***a. ‘Cause any New York issues that happened, I had to deal with when n***as pulled up. Understand? When I was on [Rikers Island], I had to deal with issues G-Unit had. I wasn’t in PC. No, n***as is real n***as. Game is on the West Coast, that’s his s***. We had to deal with Jimmy Henchman.”
“He was messing with Jimmy Henchman. It’s deeper than rap. Y’all keep asking that dumb question. When his OGs just had Feds knocking at my door. It’s like the industry y’all don’t get it. It’s the streets. Y’all don’t get it…My views of the industry is there’s a lot of snakes in it. Game was a snake that won. It was perfect timing for him. G-Unit was blowing. Understand? 50 was in the studio with Dre. He was in a little studio…We helped him. So, it’s like G-Unit we always the bad guys, but nobody ever see what anybody else does.”
Tony Yayo also questioned The Game’s involvement with Henchman, due to the fact Henchman and Tupac had a fallout in the mid nineties and The Game’s public admiration for Tupac Shakur.
