Back in the 70's and 80's, the baby boomer Italian's from NYC used "yo" like an equivalent of whistling out loud to get someone's attention-- usually someone at a distance or if you wanted to immediately get attention up close. The word was also preceded with a "hey" in many cases, as in "hey, yo." This was the old-Italian guard usage. When African Americans got a hold of it, "yo" was not only used with the "Italian usage," but also became an abbreviation for the possessive, "your."
Otherwise, see Lili2344 for a history lesson on where the slang originated.
Brooklyn vernacular:

Hey yo, Joey, wutsamatta. I ask'ja ta trow me the ball tree times already.

African American colloquialism: (now used by all ethnicities despite class, education, and geography)

Yo! Rick baby, what's with yo ride yo?
