Tony Yayo

Marvin Bernard (aka Tony Yayo) is a New York–based rapper and founding member of 50 Cent’s G-Unit crew. Throughout his career, Yayo has been embroiled in legal troubles and setbacks, including jail sentences for bail jumping and weapons charges. When G-Unit’s debut disc, the multi-platinum Beg for Mercy, was released in 2003, Yayo was serving a prison term and was only featured on two songs. His solo debut Thoughts of a Predicate Felon was trumpeted by the 2005 club hit “So Seductive,” a successful departure from the run-and-gun 'hood content.
