A Tony Yayo album, which will include the single, “Pass the Patron” (featuring 50-Cent) is slated for release in early 2011.

“We are delighted to join forces with G-Unit and artists who are truly marquee names in hip-hop,” said Mike Harris, executive Vice President/General Manager for EMI Label Services and Caroline Distribution. “G-Unit is a huge force. Lloyd Banks knows how to deliver a lyrical punch and his single has already generated huge anticipation for the album.. Tony Yayo is a totally unique talent, and ‘Pass the Patron’ already has the hip hop world buzzing about his album coming out next year.”

According to Lloyd Banks, “It’s refreshing to see the EMI staff excited about my project, they have the passion and energy I haven’t seen in while”.

Per Tony Yayo, “The EMI staff is creative and willing to think outside the box. They are fans of my music and career. I’m looking forward to marketing and promoting my upcoming album with them.”

Banks solidified his star power with the release of his double platinum solo debut, “Hunger For More” in 2004, selling more than 450,000 copies its first week of sales making it the #1 album in the country. The album garnered Banks a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance for “On Fire,” and included singles “Karma” featuring Avant and “I’m So Fly.”

Tony Yayo was catapulted onto the music scene in 2005 with the release of his debut album “Thoughts of a Predicate Felon” which went certified gold, and his smash hit single “So Seductive.”

We know they can push pop records but can they do hip hop? Sony had that problem in the 90s, they got lucky with Nas. Columbia tried to revive their hip hop section with Rick Rubin being head and signing Jim Jones after the success of Ballin' and then Jimmy comes out and bricks. Be interesting if this happens with Lloyd Banks cd.
