Tony Yayo and Cormega project on the way

For the Queens native, the title was a no-brainer. He had just seen the Johnny Depp film “Public Enemies” when someone gave him a crime encyclopedia. So Yayo has learned a lot about John Dillinger lately.

Somebody who Tony didn’t need to research for his mixtape was former Firm member Cormega.

“I had to bring the general out. Mega Montana. I know a lot of people he knows,” Yayo said, explaining how the collaboration originated. “Real recognize real. I feel this dude. His music is c’mon. When you look at an artist like Nas, you put Cormega on that same plateau, to me, in my eyes. The Firm. Everything he did in hip-hop. I love hip-hop. I remember ‘Dead Man Walking.’ That’s one of my favorite joints.”

“I was telling Yayo, when he was in jail the Yayo buzz was one of the biggest buzzes I’ve witnessed in hip-hop, period,” Cormega said. “I remember 50 before all that. I remember 50 Cent in my man Junior’s crib… always smiling, always talking. When he got on, he blew up bigger than I even thought.”
