50 Cent Labels Tony Yayo And Lloyd Banks Troy Ave’s Hype Men
The morale in G-Unit continues to spiral. During an interview with Hot 97 for his new album entitled Animal Ambition, set to drop June 3rd, 50 Cent labeled his former group mates Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, as hypemen for upcoming rapper Troy Ave.
When 50 was asked whether he liked Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks collaborating with Troy Ave, 50 swung his former partners in crime a backwards compliment.
“[They sound] good. They actually like his hypemen,” said 50.
When Ebro addressed 50 for taking a shot at his crew members, he claimed the statement wasn’t a shot, but more so, him labeling the two veterans as “supporting cast” to the budding star.
“Who are you looking to listen to on a Troy Ave record?” questioned 50. “So those guys are there to just support.”
While 50 Cent isn’t too happy with the current rap scene in New York, he did applaud Troy Ave’s come up.
“I like the idea of Troy Ave. I would want it to work; you see what I’m saying? Just because I would want something to happen in the city period. But, in reality I see a lot of me in Troy Ave.”
Last night, Tony Yayo released a new track featuring the exiled member of G-Unit, Young Buck, which may have further divided the now dysfunctional crew.—Carl Lamarre
