Tony Yayo has recently sat down with VLAD TV where he talked about being in the studio with Kanye West, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre and Eminem.
“To be in the studio with Dr. Dre and Eminem, that was my dream. I remember Fif calling me, smoking, and Dre’s playing in the clubs. That dude is best producer in the world and I’m in the studio with him. And we New York ni–as so I’m like this is a dream come true. Smoking LA weed, never left the hood, Dre is playing beats and I’m like ‘that’s dream come true!’ That’s why I’m always so humble. I might not have as much cars, chains, b–ches as other rappers but it’s not about that. It’s about experience, man.” said Yayo.
Then he continues: “Then we were in the studio in Detroit. It’s called as a b–ch. We are out there with Eminem. That’s f–king crazy. That dude just sold 16 million records. We used to go in LA with Dre and then we used to go in Detroit to mess with Em. Shout out to Tracy, Paul Rosenberg they all treated us as family over there.”
At this point, VLAD asked what makes Eminem to differ from another rappers in the booth. On that, he replied:
“I think what Eminem makes him astronomical is, when we were doing “Many Men” he was doing the production, cause does a lot of production on a lot of stuff on Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, it was the footsteps in the shots and he was like footsteps came from poltergeist, it’s crazy… Just like NAS, he’s as lyrical as NAS and then a lot of people say ‘I don’t really hear him in the club,’ but nah, it’s not about that, ‘I don’t really hear him in car,’ nah, that’s not about that too! Right now Eminem can sell out the stadium with no problem. 62 million monthly listeners on Spotify! Big boy numbers!”
“What he did for me and what I see he did for 50 and Banks and G-Unit as a whole, D12, Obie Trice, everybody went platinum and gold! Getting co-signs from him we had the overseas connection cause it was not really just Interscope. Interscope was part of Jimmy Iovine but Eminem is a machine in his own. He might not come outside and relate to other s–t that people wanna see him but still bro, look what he did with Griselda. They are fire but that Eminem cosign, when you look at Joe Budden and Slaughterhouse, Eminem cosign is a different kind of cosign. G-Unit would never be no serial video video game, socks, shirts selling millions if not Eminem and Dr. Dre cosign.” – Tony Yayo added.
