MTV News reports that according to a spokesperson for the New York State Division of Parole, Tony Yayo met with his parole officer the day after his release and was asked to provide all his current identification documents as part of a standard, post-release review. Among those included was a fake passport — a violation of federal law. Yayo is now being held in federal custody at a prison in New York City for possession of a forged instrument. He had a preliminary hearing last week that set another hearing date for February 24. Because he is accused of violating federal law, his case is being handled by both state and federal authorities.

Asked what he’s learned along the way, he says, “Appreciate any publicity. Press is priceless. Whether it is good or bad, it is priceless. I have also really learned that everyone has an opinion and to respect it. But at the same time, opinions are like assholes–everyone has one.” Check out the entire interview here.

Big Boy’s Neighborhood (Power 106) had another one of their famous breakfasts and this time it was with none other than the G-Unit. The G-Unit was joined by Big Boy, Fuzzy, Joe, and Liz for the “intimate” interview. 50 lucky fans (the number had to be brought up due to demands, the usual number of tickets given aways is 20) won tickets by calling up the radio station and answering trivia questions to be in studio for the breakfast with G-Unit.
As usual, the interview inlcuded alot of joking, laughing, and not to mention free doughnuts courtesy of Big Boy. Of course, the fans got to ask questions, take pictures, and get autographs. Even thought the majority of the fans in the studio were males, the females made their presence felt by asking sexually explicit questions, which made all the males in the room roar out in laughter and shock, but of course, there were all sorts of questions by every fan in the room.
