Tony Yayo is speaking out about 50 Cent’s feud with The Game, which he says came from another business conflict.
Tony says in a recent interview with VladTV that the pair’s tough relationship sprang from an intense rivalry between Jimmy Henchman, who represented Game, and Chris Lighty, the manager of 50 Cent. Yayo alleges Jimmy and Chris disliked one other and were envious of each other, which reflected negatively on the artists they represented.
“I’ll tell you the poison and that was Jimmy Henchman,” Tony told Vlad. “Jimmy Henchman never liked Chris Lighty. It was always jealousy… So, Chris Lighty always had hate from people because you know he had P. Diddy, he had Fifty, he had Foxy. […] I feel like the Henchmen beef was inherited from Chris Lighty, like, he never liked the guy.”
Tony also addressed the shooting outside of Hot 97 back in 2005, which further fueled the feud between the Game and G-Unit.
“When you are in a group man, it is egos man. Motherf*ckers are from the hood. N***s ain’t got no money. No financial experience. Nothing! Ain’t made a dollar. You know there is egos there, man, it’s egos. But, for Game, I looked at it like I heard the songs that were co-written by Fifty and it was fire. I just looked at it as the ultimate assist.”
