Once he started dating Nicki Minaj and the two superstars went on a huge international tour around the world, playing in front of thousands of people, his name reached a whole new fan base. The Philadelphia native has been involved in a number of beefs during his time in the spotlight, with most of the feuds still ongoing.For the past two weeks, the two rappers have been trading diss songs and social media jabs.The rapper has a five-year deal with Reebok, his own Vitamin Water flavor, launched a body spray with Right Guard, started a condom line called Magic Stick Condoms, published an autobiography, and has an acting career.Jackson has one son, Marquise Jackson, with former girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins. Though authorities are reportedly interested in speaking with Tony Yayo about the murder of a man on the set of a Busta Rhymes video on Sunday morning, the G-Unit member's lawyer said his client has nothing to say."He has not been questioned, and based on my conversations with the New York police and the Brooklyn County district attorney, he is not a target of the investigation," attorney Scott Leemon said.The iconic crew began releasing a new track nearly every week upon the announcement, and later organized a few of the original records for their Beauty Of Independence mixtape.
According to Newsday, Yayo was supposed to be in the video but was ejected from the studio for unspecified reasons, and was later heard by witnesses saying that no one tells him to be quiet and that he is on parole.I say that because after what happened to Martha Stewart and Lil' Kim, I don't think any competent lawyer would allow his client to speak to authorities, and it's not in [Yayo's] character to speak to the authorities." An NYPD spokesperson said Tuesday (February 7) that the investigation into the incident is ongoing.He would not comment on whom authorities are seeking to interview.Collecting 50 Cent and Tony Yayo, it sounded like yet another classic G-Unit cut, complete with some Scott Storch-esque stacatto chords.It's still not entirely clear where the song will end up, but the crew's album, The Beast Is G-Unit is said to be coming soon.
He also started his own label, G-Unit Records, that manages Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks.
