Tony Yayo Says 50 Cent Funded Entire "Final Lap" Tour Himself

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is really taking a stand to get rid of the stigma that Black companies don’t pay well. After coming out in defense of entertainers like Mo’Nique, Taraji P. Henson, and Terrence Howard being shortchanged for their previous roles and making sure the cast of his “Power” and “BMF” series are paid correctly, now comes news that he also financed his music tour.

On a recent episode of DJVlad’s podcast/interview series, G-Unit member, Tony Yayo, who has been rolling with 50 since childhood, discussed some of the things that took place during the “In Da Club” rapper’s tour. Yayo joined his friend on the “Final Lap” tour that started last July and recently ended. The artists traveled to perform in 70 cities across more than 20 countries. But, as well as being paid as a performer on the road, Yayo shared that 50 is a great businessman and not only that, he financed the tour that took care of many people who worked feverishly for the television producer.

“Everybody’s coming there, of course, to work for 50, ’cause 50 cuts the budget. But when you think of everything that’s behind it, from production, road management, catering, dancers, f**kin’ stewardess on the jet, pilots, everybody’s like one big team,” he said. “And 50 pays for everything.”

Yayo even remarked that he made six figures being on the road with 50.

But, don’t get it twisted! 50 is not only a successful rapper and television producer, he also has a spirits company, Sire Spirits that has been making deals with various teams throughout several sports leagues.

According to the Orlando Magic, 50 Cent and his company, Sire Spirits, have agreed to a multiyear partnership with the NBA team to make 50’s brand the Official Spirit of the Orlando Magic. This deal will include Sire Spirits’ award-winning Branson Cognac and Le Chemin du Roi Champagne brands. This is just the latest as 50 also has partnerships with the Houston Rockets, the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Indiana Pacers, and the Sacramento Kings, among other professional teams in various leagues.
