Eminem is Praised by Tony Yayo For Helping Him in His Career
Recently, Tony Yayo appeared on Vlad TV to speak with DJ Vlad. He thanked Eminem for being Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the broadcast and recalled how the Detroit rapper helped him when he first started out.
“Eminem just got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, shout out Eminem,” he said. “One of the greatest. Shout out to Eminem. Always loved Eminem. Big accomplishment, one of the best emcees in the world. Shout out to Eminem. Give him his flowers while he’s still here.”
“He always helped me in my career, He’s on my first album. He wore a free Yayo shirt at the Grammys. So, I’m always gonna show him respect, love and salute him as well as Dr. Dre and everyone else who built this legacy. As well as Jimmy lovine too. Cause I mean Jimmy Lovine was a genius, Eminem was a genius, Dr. Dre was also a genius. And we all fell in line. I feel like that was the best deal ever.”
“I feel like Eminem always got hated on. Benzino and Source Magazine was big at that time, they were calling us ‘house niggas’ and all kind of shit back then when we were signed to Eminem. Color never really meant nothing to me. I’m from New York. It’s a Melting pot of a color. I went to grade school and my first too friends was Ralphie and Frank Harveen, he was an Italian. I never seen colour. It was white, it was black, it was Indian, Jewish, Spanish, Haitian, Jamaican, Trinidadian, Guyanese…It was always a melting pot of people So, I never felt that way.”
“Nobody ever did anything in my career besides Eminem and 50 Cent. And I always say, Em doing free Yayo while I was in jail, I only had to go about two years and they kept my name alive. They started putting my name in videos and stuff like that and free Yayo shirt was selling. I’m always gonna salute him….Being attached to Eminem was the best deal, without Eminem and Dr. Dre we would not have that much of a success. Jimmy lovine, interscope, Shady, Aftermath. It was a fucking movement that was just fucking unstoppable. And you’ve seen how Eminem singlehandedly took down the Source magazine cause Benzino was always just fucking mad. I don’t know why but he was just always mad.”
