Tony Yayo says that 50 Cent's Final Lap Tour was a “movie” he made “six figures” as a support act for the run of concerts. Speaking with VladTV, the G-Unit rapper explained how lucrative the tour was as well as his plans for getting into podcasting. The topic began with Yayo discussing his decision not to sell merch on the tour despite 50 making millions in that lane alone.

“His merch is in the millions. He’s an icon,” he said. “You can ask anyone — the people that ran the tour from Live Nation — they’ll tell you, ‘Your favorite rapper can’t do what 50 just did.'” From there, he explained: “I don’t ask for too much. I’m making six figures, so why would I bother you for more? It’s cool. I’m not worried about that. Trust me, I’m making a great check […] The money is great, the money is excellent.”
