Tony Yayo

Let’s be honest: Tony Yayo’s rap career wouldn’t have gone anywhere without the assistance of 50. But Tony's shine was also aided by his criminal bona fides: 50 would frequently shout "Free Yayo" on tracks during Tony's incarceration for bail-jumping and other charges in 2003 and 2004. And in 2007, Tony allegedly smacked the 14-year-old son of rival rap exec (and convicted con) Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond.
