Could you have pictured that six years ago Tony Yayo, 50 Cent‘s right hand man, would be attempting to find his footing in hip-hop’s digital age side-by-side with Shawty Lo? Well, thanks to Fiddy’s CEO-like decisions, Yayo gets a second chance for solo success (and a sophomore album at that) with the new single Haters. Flipping the sample from Dey Know, Lo proclaims his newfound G-Unit affiliation proudly on this southern-esque banger, produced by the always-busy Scoop Deville. Elsewhere on the mic, newly-signed Kidd Kidd sounds like a certain Young Money member with another repetitious name, as Fiddy fulfills chorus duties quite nicely and Roscoe Dash takes a rare break from his club anthems . Oh, and Yayo’s verse? Typical NY tough talk. Haters will have plenty more to hate on when Yayo’s upcoming, untitled album drops…eventually.
