    G-Unit Q&A Sessions Part 2 Interview

    Our Q&A Session with G-Unit's Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks continues as the two discuss their future albums, ventures, and what they have in store for fans worldwide in the coming months. You can read the interview below or scroll to the bottom for the 20 Minute audio clip.



    Defsounds: Speaking of hit records, I got beef to pick right now, who's leading the project as far as marketing goes, 50 or the record label—who's picking the singles?

    Yayo: Interscope's involved, 50's involved, we're involved, its the same machine.


    Defsounds: Who's picking the singles?

    Yayo: it's collectively being done, like right now Rider Pt 2. Is killing them, we didn't pick that single, it was for a mixtape, the fans and the people in the streets pick the single.


    Defsounds: Alright so here's my question to you, what happened with The Way She Do It, why would you go from Rider Pt 2. which is some hardcore street shit to the way she do it?

    Yayo: Because we're not just for one market, we just came from Australia, Melbourne, Angola, Tanzania, Johannesburg, we just came from everywhere..I like the way she do it rocks in different markets.

    Our hardcore street fans might not like it in New York City, I could go to Paris and perform that and they'll love it, I can go to Amsterdam and they'll love it cause we're the biggest rap group in the world. So we're performing for different markets.



    Defsounds: It seems to me and a lot of the fans--

    Yayo: People like the record, when we do go overseas and people that go on line, they like it just as much as they like Rider Pt2. A lot of artists, including me, are just going overseas for the first time—I couldn't cause I was in jail. What I'm learning from Banks and Fif is that they make music for the world—you might wanna hear a Rider Pt2. Record but someone from Germany might wanna hear I like the way she do it.


    Defsounds: Well it seems to me like you guys put out more quality material that you do on mixtapes than you do when you put out an album, The Way She Do It just seems like the cheesy track you put out for girls.

    Banks: Now you're just going into opinions, we don't want none of that.

    Yayo: Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one. You might think or your friends might think its a cheesy girl record but when we go overseas we're performing in front of 11-13,000 who like the record.

    Banks: You're saying its a cheesy girl record, you gotta ask your girl how she feels about the record.



    Defsounds: And she'll like it because it's a cheesy girl record, I'm not saying its a bad track—you're misunderstanding me

    Banks: well there you go, you're just a fan of Rider Part 2. I had to do like two clean versions for that record—so as cheesy as you call it, it's really not. I had to do two clean versions for Rider, I had to do two clean versions for the cheesy girl record cause that shit you're talking about..that Rider, we're at a time of day that it's not gonna get played.


    Defsounds: I understand that, you're misundestanding me—all I'm saying is that you guys...

    Yayo: You know why feel I disrespected, because you're saying its a CHEESY girl record, it's a girl record.

    Banks: Yeah, thats too much of an opinion, thats your opinion.

    Yayo: You don't like the record, but you like Rider Part 2, I'm not mad at you, opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one. But what I'm saying is, we want your girl to dance on us too! When I'm in the club, and a girl got a fat ass—I like the way she do it! Uh Uh!..You're gonna dance! If a girl with a fat ass is dancing in front of you in the club, you can jump on that ass and you're gonna like the record. That cheesy girl record is gonna get you laid later on that night! Know what I'm saying?



    Defsounds: Alright, what about my question that it just seems like you guys have more fun when you do mixtape records than when you do actual songs for the album—and it shows in your music..

    Yayo: I agree with you on that, I agree with you on that.


    Defsounds: So what's the differen...

    Yayo: You know what the difference now, we recorded T.O.S. Like a mixtape album. Some stuff that was supposed to be on mixtapes is actually on the album this time. Wasn't nobody over our shoulder, we did it our way.


    Defsounds: Right.

    Yayo: So “I Like The Way She Do It” was really supposed to be on Elephant In The Sand too. We were recording for Elephant In The Sand and we just started making astronomical records. But when you're saying it's a cheesy girl record, I look at it like its just a girl record. That's just your opinion but I'm not mad at you because I understand theres fans out there—theres a catch 22 to everything in life, meaning when you move to a nice neighborhood all your neighbors are white but they don't talk to you. Back in the hood your neighbors are more nice to you, know what I'm saying?



    Defsounds: Yeah but you don't want them to talk to you anyways, they borrow your shit and never return it.

    Yayo: There's a catch 22 to everything, you get money now everybody wants to shoot you. It's a catch 22 to everything. We make a hard record, our hard fans love it but when we make a girl record our hard fans don't like it. But we still have a female fan base. Bitches like Banks, bitches like Yayo, bitches like 50. Who could possibly like Fat Joe? Like, no homo, not to judge him but I'm not overweight and got stretch marks everywhere. Bitches actually scream for us.



    Defsounds: Right.

    Yayo: I don't know if they scream for you! But the scream for us!



    Defsounds: Nah, they do, they do—I'm not even gonna lie—bitches love me.

    Yayo: Know what I'm sayin, we not RN!..a RN is a regular *****...not a registered nurse...a regular *****. We extraterrestrial. When Banks in a Lamborghini, gotta make them chick records—bitches love Banks. Bitches don't love Lloyd Banks?



    Defsounds: Speaking of Banks, let me ask him a question

    Yayo: Banks could probably bag YOUR girl, no disrespect!



    Defsounds: Yeah he could, I'll take a picture

    Yayo: He got a girl fan base..



    Defsounds: If Banks takes my girl I'd have her interviewing him while they're fuckin—that's how it is. Get me some exclusive shit!

    Yayo: That's what I'm saying!



    Defsounds: Let me ask Banks a question, what's going on with your next album? Sha Money has dropped details here and there about it—when is it coming out, is there a due date—anything you can give us as far as that?



    [Silence]



    Defsounds: Banks fell asleep?

    Yayo: He got disconnected.



    Defsounds: Well let me ask you a question then Yayo, cause you said you didn't know where that “50's Tax Write Off” album title came from—and it actually came from you from a prior interview...so what's the deal, you don't remember saying it or...

    Yayo: Saying what?



    Defsounds: That you're going to put out an album called “50's Tax Write Off”

    Yayo: Yeah I did say that. I collectively have like over 60 songs that I've been working on. That title was something I was thinking about, you never know, I might change it.



    Defsounds: Are there any features on it, do you have any other titles in mind?

    Yayo: I got tracks from Eminem, I got tracks from everybody..but right now we're just promoting T.O.S.



    Defsounds: Are you guys making an appearance on Detox?

    Yayo: I'm not sure, I know Fifty been in the studio—I've been in the studio where I've actually seen Fifty recording for the Detox album. I actually saw it but I really can't tell you what Dre's gonna do with Detox, but I know Fifty has done about three songs for it so far.



    Defsounds: So the album is real and it's definitely coming out then?

    Yayo: Yeah I definitely know Fifty has definitely recorded for it cause I heard some of them myself.


    Defsounds: Hows the [release] process working, you guys are dropping T.O.S. And then are you focusing on solo projects?

    Yayo: we're really just gonna wait and see how the outcome of T.O.S is and see what the people wanna hear. We'll be coming out with solo projects—Fif is gonna drop Before I Self Destruct in the fourth quarter, that'll be his last album with Interscope. Then we'll figure out what the boss wants to do from there but for right now the whole purpose is to promote T.O.S July 1st featuring Swiss Beats, Palaow Da Don, and a whole bunch of new producers.


    Defsounds: There's a rumor that Newscorp, Fox, offered Fifty and G-Unit 300 mil for their portfo--

    Yayo: I can't negotiate that money right there...



    Defsounds: Well it's not negotiating..

    Yayo: I don't wanna talk about of Fifty's deals because I don't want to disrupt anything, because the contract that you're talking about is big money so I don't want to talk about anything like that.



    Defsounds: Fair enough..

    Yayo: You tryna get me in trouble maaan!



    Defsounds: Naaaah

    Yayo: You tryna talk about 300 Million dollar shit! I'm not saying nothing cause you're gonna fuck up My money!



    Defsounds: Naaah, you don't get in trouble-- you say the dum...

    Yayo: I'm not gonna get in trouble but I don't wanna fuck up MY bag of money! I'm tryna buy me a couple of houses before the summer is over. I got two—I wanna get two more.

    [Banks gets back on the line]


    Defsounds: Banks I wanted to ask you about...

    Yayo: Banks you gotta watch this guy! This guys slippery. I like him though.


    Defsounds: I'm a good guy, what are you talking about...let me ask Banks about your forthcoming album. I don't know the name of it because I don't think you've chosen one—Sha Money has said he's been working with you own it, can you give us any details?..a release date or something?


    Banks: A release date on my third album?

    Yayo: He's talking about your new album that you're gonna be coming out with

    Banks: nah nah nah, I mean, actually Sha Money doesn't have anything to do with my third album.



    Defsounds: Sure has been talking a lot about it...

    Banks: I mean, he's heard some songs so thats probably why he's talking about it, but I'm still in the beginning stages though. I got over a hundred records but I also plan on releasing three mixtapes by December. So a lot of material that you'll consider to be album credible is actually going to end up on mixtapes and things of that nature but it's going to be a long ride this year.

    I've learned that you can't be away for two years and expect people to run to the record store for one record. It's a build up, the same build up that I had with Money In the Bank, and I feel like I owe that to my fans.



    Defsounds: Have you picked a title for the album yet?

    Banks: Not yet, not yet. Hopefully somebody could pick it for me like they always do.



    Defsounds: Any features, any producers working on it?

    Banks: Honestly, I don't want to say that my doors are shut because they definitely aren't. I feel like a lot of people feel that way because I don't really work with a lot of artists but that's just been because of MY work ethic. I never really had time to fly to another city and chill for three or four days and make one record. So, I don't know, I don't want to close any options but at the same time I'm not thinking about features because the record label's kind of crazy. They'll boos you up and talk about all these features on your album and when it comes down to it, it doesn't really connect because of all kinds of reasons. So I'm really focused on Lloyd Banks as a solo artist and don't really care about the features right now.



    Defsounds: So are you guys planning to branch off with your own deals?

    Yayo: We're doing that already. We're doing stuff already. Right now I'm in negotiations with movies—going to acting school. I've been on set of Righteous Kill with Deniro and Pacino and Fif's shooting a movie with Val Kilmer and Sharon Stone. Banks has shit he's coming out with like tomorrow! We have a bunch of stuff, we can't let the cat out the bag. I'm gonna have like 10 McDonald's or something, you never know.



    Defsounds: You're gonna franchise McDonald?

    Yayo: I've been looking into all kinds of things, movies, acting. I actually got a part in Fifty's new movie, Ski Mask Way—I've been practicing my part for that. Banks'll tell you about that producing—he's the man with that, he has to let me borrow some of them porno chicks he has.

    Banks: Yeah you can expect a couple of films under Bank Shots Productions, my first film—groupie love was nominated for a couple of awards at the AVN awards. It's a billion dollar business that I'm very very interested in and I'm able to do and execute based on my lifestyle. They [fans] can expect the KamaSutra edition this year. 1,001 positions—I'm going all angles as well as the Blood In the Sand video game they can expect later this year. But for the most part I'm really focusing on the music. I'm not really in the same space as every artist. I'm jut focused on me as a solo artist. I feel like I got a lot to prove with my music before I put my attention on the other things. Music is actually what drives me and pays all the bills and make people want to talk to you.



    Defsounds: Right, what releases are guys looking forward to this summer. I know you're mostly focused on Terminate On Sight but as far as other rappers, since there are a lot of new rappers coming out


    Yayo: I'm gonna tell you the biggest release I'm looking forward to is----TERMINATE ON SIGHT JULY 1st SWIZZ BEATS, PALAOW DA DON...



    Defsounds: Alright, can I get a honest opinion aside from a Promo?

    Banks: What records am I looking forward to?


    Defsounds: Yep

    Yayo: T.O.S!


    Defsounds: Yeah but you've heard T.O.S. A thousand times, I want to know when you're not listening to G-Unit or what song comes on the radio that you listen to it, let it rock?

    Banks: Me personally, I like Prodigy's new album, HNIC 2 for a lot of different reasons. The first one came out—it was incredible to me, the second one coming out its kinda like reminiscent of that. Shout out to him, I don't really have too much insight as to what albums are coming out but that's one thats definitely in my changer.

    Yayo: Lil Wayne!, I want to see what his album's gonna sound like.


    Defsounds: see, thats a good answer Yayo.

    Yayo: I wanna see what his album is gonna sound like but I know what T.O.S. Is gonna sound like!..It's gonna be aggressive..come on man!.

  • #2
    Defsounds: Alright, let me ask you about some recent headlines, what do you guys think about the whole Remy Ma and Papoose thing—I know Pap is cool with Fif so what do you guys think ?

    Yayo: I was on the phone with Pap the other day, I did the KaySlay radio show and he called in. I did time on the island so I know what it is. I just did two years and Remy got eight so big shout out to her. It's messed up but you know—its crazy out here in the streets. It's a rainy day—its raining out here that means someones dying. Somebody probably got killed in Queens. I don't know how these other rappers are living but its real out here, New York City is the jungle man. Murder rate's up, crime rate's up, we got aggression and thats why T.O.S. It's gonna be my favorite album—cause it has that aggression. That aggression in hip hop—it's not there any more.

    You remember listening to “Hail Mary” for the first time?



    Defsounds: Yep.

    Yayo: Remember listening to “Who Shot Ya” for the first time?This is what Banks is talking about like a man can kiss another man, a man can be on a game show, a man can pee on a little girl, a man can do anything in the industry and people'll still go buy their records. But me and Banks, we came up in a totally different time. Big L, Biggie, Pac...

    Defsounds: Big L was hot

    Yayo: You forgot about the Big L, Big Pun, Big L!...Ebonics was one of my favorite records...


    Defsounds: Yea, Children of the Corn was hot---before Cam'ron got hit on the head and slowed down...let me ask you one more question that you don't have to answer. I'm sure you heard about T.I. And his case and how he got off, now Yayo being that you've been locked up and Banks you've had your run ins with the law here and there...how do you think he got that deal?

    Yayo: umm..to be honest with you..I don't know how he got that deal.


    Defsounds: No clue?

    Yayo: From what I know from the feds, I've been in the feds—I had two years probation, ankle bracelet , I did state time---by the fed guidelines, I don't know how he got that deal. It's impossible. In my eyes, from what I know...you don't even have to ask me all you have to do is look at Fed guidlines—the federal information thats available to the public. It goes by points, so I don't see how he got a year for that.


    Defsounds: Right.

    Yayo: They was tryna give me a year for smacking Jimmy Henchmen's son. So I don't know.


    Defsounds: I thougth you said you didn't do that, you're incriminating yourself!

    Banks: Nah he said they tried to.

    Yayo: I said they



    Defsounds: It's aight, I'm gonna leave that out the interview.

    Yayo: I mean, you know what's funny about the media. What I like about ya'll. I'm so observant of ya'll. I don't give a fuck about the media no more. I know how to play the media now. Cause ya'll get people to twist their words and say crazy shit.

    For instance, I'll give you the perfect example. I was talking to my friend from Far Roc [Far Rockaway, Queens] about this guy that had something to do with the Ghostface album. We were just talking on the sidelines and the interviewer decided that he was going to go and talk about our conversation in the media and say that I said that Ghostface didn't write his album.


    Defsounds: Hold up Yayo, now you're playing victim. There's audio of you--

    Yayo: Listen! I'll never play victim cause I'm a gangster. Now you're just trying to get me upset, now you're trying to play me. I'm telling you what was said. I was talking to somebody and the Ghostface thing came up—yeah I did tell Ghostface to suck my dick, cause he told me to suck his dick. So don't tell me I'm playing victim cause Yayo doesn't chose his words for nobody! And you know that! I'm telling you what happened, Ghostface went on and told me to suck his dick and all this shit out of context.


    Defsounds: I'm talking about before that...

    Yayo: I told Ghostface to suck my dick too! Cause it's a sign of disrespect. I don't back down from nobody—from jesus homie. In that situation, the media hyped the shit up just like how you was just about to--


    Defsounds: Nah nah nah, hold up, you said your words were twisted when theres audio of you saying he didnt write his own album..

    Yayo: What I was telling you is that I was TALKING to somebody, I wasn't talking to the interviewer


    Defsounds:...during an interview

    Yayo: I was talking directly to him, understand what I'm saying?


    Defsounds: right but you're saying it like thats not what you meant...

    Yayo: listen, I'm not gonna sit here and explain to you something that you think—there's audio out there—it is what it is. That's where the media be fucked up out there cause they be OD'ing sometimes.

    Like how right now you're trying to tell me what I said, so why I never heard the audio!? You're the only one that heard the audio?!


    Defsounds: everyone's heard the audio, thats why everyone knows you said it.

    Yayo: well listen to the audio when I told the ***** to suck my dick cause he told me to suck his dick. It is what it is, I'm never gonna be a victim cause I'm a gangster. Like I said, I'm riding around in a bulletproof vehicle right now—200 thousand, you wanna hear my window go down? They go down very slow, Terminate On Sight, July 1st I'm out.

    [Yayo hangs up the phone]

    Defsounds: Welp..I guess that wraps things up. Thanks for the interview guys

                            Wow, that was the stupidiest interview EVER!

                            Props to the interviewer, he really got some balls.

                              this interview was kind of stupid.

                              All it consisted of arguing between then and the interviewer and ass kissing by the interviewer
