Tony Yayo: “I’m Looking Towards Movies Right Now.”

Tony Yayo refers to himself as G-Unit’s “bad guy” and in the upcoming Juice Crew movie, “The Vapors,” the rapper will fittingly play the legendary outfit’s nemesis, KRS-One. “They came to me about playing the part of KRS-One,” Yayo explained to XXLmag.com “So I was honored to even hear that.” In a recent interview the Blastmaster confirmed Yayo would be tackling the role of the Boogie Down Productions front man in the film. The lyrical icon went toe-to-to with the Juice Crew’s MC Shan throughout the late ’80s and said he was sure he’d be portrayed as a villain in the film. “Of course, and I hope they do,” he said. “I was a villain. It was no joke and that’s what it was.” Yayo said his foray into Hollywood is a part of his plans to grow as an entrepreneur. “I want to make my own [moves], ” he said. “I’m looking towards movies right now. I’m working with people you wouldn’t even believe.”

        • xlwhite

          maybe i was talking about being “on” somebody named mike, maybe meezzzy is your nickname and your real names mike, maybe you need to chill out and stop acting like an english teacher.haha, seriously though, i aint(wrong again) into arguing with people online, so i apologize for my grammer and you guys are right, g unit is a great label for producing actors, and their new videogame looks awesome. im totally going to get it instead of gta4. (funny thing is gta4′s soundtrack will be 10x better)

    • xlwhite

      @bmeezy-sooo sorry,forgot it’s spelled *mic. in the words of Bart from How High,”my bad, dog”
      @ real niggas-no, it was jada, styles, nas, sheek, diddy, the rest of the diplomats,his wife and kid he kicked out of his house, and everybody else hes beefed with.lol.
      and i dont spend all my time on here trashing the unit, i spend it looking for news on good music coming out, something hard to find in rap lately. believe me homie, i liked 50 and the unit as much as anybody when they came out, but after get rich or die tryin he started falling off/slacking off. ill be the first one in line for his next cd if its like his first, but id rather listen to rappers that are making good music, and not vitamin water/videogames/movies. and no, i’m not hating him for doing that shit, i would too for hundreds of mils, but as far as his music, hes sold out and gone too ‘pop’ for me(ill take you to the candyshop, let you lick the lollipop…aint gangsta). by the way, i do have a job and im in college
      p.s.- we should be able to poke fun at Yayo, everybody agrees hes the least talented out of the unit(that dropped a album at least)

    Co-sign Sykotic. I mean who would do a better job of playing KRS-1 than the man himself? He’s still doin his thing. He’s in decent health as far as we know. I don’t have anything against Yayo but It doesn’t appear to be a good move, but I’m gonna hold out to see for myself. Who knows, maybe Yayo will suprise a lot of people….

  • C-Fizzle
