Despite releasing a gold-selling album back in 2005, “Thoughts of a Predicate Felon,” Tony Yayo got the boot from Interscope Records two years later. (*deeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaad*)
Currently still signed with G-Unit, Yayo is without a distributor and considering the independent route. But apparently Yayo has no interest in joining one of the biggest independent outlets in hip-hop.
When asked if he’d consider signing with E1, [formerly known as Koch] the label 50 Cent has previously dubbed “a graveyard,” Yayo assured it was out of the question.
“Would I consider signing with Koch? No,” he told BET.com. “Because I know 50 would structure a better deal than Koch would give me. So I would just stay over here, you know, G-Unit’s a good label. I mean, we got our own people that work for us, so I feel like even on the “T.O.S.” [Terminate on Site] album, I felt like we was independent on that album, like Interscope didn’t give us the push that we need like iTunes and other places.” – BET
