Lloyd Banks stopped by the Hot97 studio the other day to discuss his upcoming “Hunger For More 2″ mixtape which is on the way, and he also talked about how different it
was on Interscope from being independent now. I was also a bit
surprised to hear how heated Banks gets about blog comments or being
passed over for things like hottest emcees lists, etc. Turns out he’s
paying very close attention….
I’ll post some clips of our lengthy conversation soon, but on a more current topic…
I asked Lloyd Banks about the Shyne “Unthinkable” freestyle which had leaked that day, with this rhyme….
At the end of the snippet, Shyne says “F–k 50 Cents,” referencing their 2004 beef. Banks had a very strong reaction….not much to the diss line, but he went off on Shyne’s comeback overall…
Banks: “I spoke to Fif today…he just laughed about it. But I heard some other things that Shyne put out, and I’ll be the first to tell you and the world, he’s very wack….you don’t hear it? What kind of style he got right now?…”
Listen, after the jump…
Yikes. Now consistent readers of this blog know that I really like Shyne, he’s always been nothing but polite to me. And with many mutual friends between us, I’ve kept a close eye on his legal struggles and his deportation ones too. Also I think Shyne is very talented (”The Commission“=classic), so I don’t count anyone out.
That said, Shyne is an OG, so he knew that a shot fired would be a shot answered. And Banks isn’t gonna bite his tongue, so this is what both guys are prepared for. Lloyd Banks may be biased because of his
loyalty to G-unit, but in reality, its nothing that isn’t being said,
in way harsher terms on those Nahright comments.
