G-Unit's Tony Yayo has dreamed up a tour with 50 Cent, Eminem and Dr. Dre and offered to take a position on the road crew.
From Yayo's perspective, a tour of that magnitude would be money in the bank.
"You know what? I would love to see Eminem, Dre and 50 do a big tour, so I could make millions of dollars," he said in an interview. "I'll be a stagehand and work in the back. I wouldn't even care. I know I'll make a million dollars lifting stuff. It's an honor to be in their presence. With guys like Em and Dre and Fif, these guys got busy schedules. Em is working on another album. Fif got about 15 movies; he's working on another movie right now called 'The Gun.' Dre -- come on, man, you see them Dr. Dre headphones selling like hot cakes everywhere you go. Those guys are busy guys. I feel blessed I could say that I know Eminem, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. A lot of artists beg to do a song with Eminem, beg to do a song with 50 Cent, beg to do a song with Dre -- I've experienced all those worlds." (MTV)
Young Money's Drake recently announced plans to begin his first headlining tour this spring.
Titled the "The Away From Home Tour," Drizzy plans on making stops at Penn State, Michigan State University, West Virginia University, University of Central Florida and the University of Kentucky among other schools. He will also be performing at this year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The Grammy-nominated artist will be taking fellow Canadian-bred MC K-OS with him on the road as well as synth pop band Francis and The Lights. "Away from Home" is part of 5th Annual Campus Consciousness Tour, produced by Pretty Polly Productions and non-profit environmental organization Reverb. The tour will kick off on April 5 and run until May 8. Fans can visit prettypolly.com for more info and a full list of tour dates. (XXL Mag)
Yayo recently spoke on his stance toward ex-Unit member Young Buck.
"Look, I told you, I'm not talking about a n*gga that has zero, nothing," Yayo told radio host DJ Whoo Kid. "I'm good man, rest in peace to Tick man...He frustrated. N*ggas know it's rough in the rap game right now, only the strong are surviving. Riding in nice cars, rappers are gonna have to start rapping for food soon...A n*gga can keep saying what he wanna say, but as long as those checks keep coming for me, I'm good...He's broke, what do you want me [to say?] How you spell broke? B-r-o-k-e. What do you do when a n*gga's on his last legs, don't have nothing, baby mom's all over the place, you was eating Olivia." (Radio Planet TV)
Preparing to tour in the next few weeks, Lloyd Banks spoke on his rap group earlier this week.
"Well the status is, I am the present, the past and the future," Banks explained in an interview. "So they can definitely look forward to that. Tony Yayo, of course. The founding members are always gonna be there. We built this up, gave opportunities to other artists that were signed including [Young] Buck and Game and so on. But as long as that structure is there, we're good. We're solid. You can look forward to me, I'm the future. This summer [for my album]. It's a tight schedule...hopefully we can push for late summer." ("KG Radio Show")
