How Did Villanova Get 50 Cent and Yayo to Perform?

Not that they didn't absolutely love it, but how did Villanova students get so lucky as to have a concert last Friday night with both Tony Yayo and 50 Cent? The man to thank seems to be men's basketball coach Jay Wright, a "big friend" of Yayo's, Yayo told the Villanovan. After Wright persuaded Yayo to play at Friday's Hoops Mania event, Yayo persuaded Fiddy. "I called up 50, who's like a brother to me, and he said he wanted to roll up," Yayo said. "Jay Wright wanted to surprise the students by having me there, so I had to outdo him and surprise everyone with 50."
