, he was discovered by Eminem and signed by Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. Dre (who produced his first major-label album, Get Rich or Die Tryin'), Jackson became one of the world's best selling rappers and rose to prominence with East Coast hip hop group G-Unit (which he leads de facto).
In 2003, he founded G-Unit Records, signing his G-Unit associates Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo.
Tony Yayo has come through today with a new project, The Great Escape: El Chapo 3, the third installment in his mixtape series that dates back to 2011, so we can't accuse the G-Unit vet of jumping on the bandwagon.
Yayo dropped two of the tape's tracks, "Always in My Business" and "Billionaire," this summer, and before that, he had been steadily releasing freestyles over classic New York instrumentals.
This year, many rappers have paid tribute to the Mexican drug kingpin known as El Chapo, who, in July, escaped from prison for the second time.
