Lloyd Banks, You Remind Me of My… Beamer, Benz or Bentley
After a couple years off the radar, Lloyd Banks is back with a brand new single “Beamer, Benz or Bentley,” featuring Juelz Santana. With the record tearing up the charts and spawning a slew of unofficial remixes, XXLMag.com caught up with the G-Unit soldier to get at the heart of the song. Don’t be fooled by the title, the track is about more than just fly whips but fly chicks, too. We combined the best of both worlds and got Blue Hefner to rate 10 notable celebrities as either a Beamer, Benz or Bentley.
XXLMag.com: So the first chick is Kim Kardashian. Does she remind you of a Beamer, Benz or Bentley?
Lloyd Banks: She’s a Bentley GT. First of all, she’s drivin’ in a Bentley… I can’t put her any less than that.
Lloyd Banks: [Pauses] That’s a tough one. I’ll say a Benz ’cause she got some long ass legs. I’m in that 6.3, too, and my shit is like… Yeah, I’ll say she’s a Benz.
XXLMag.com: Halle Berry?
Lloyd Banks: Halle Berry? Out of a Beamer, Benz or Bentley I’d have to say she’s a Bugatti. I don’t have one of those yet.
XXLMag.com: Angelina Jolie?
Lloyd Banks: Aw, man, I was just talking about her too not too long ago. She’s one of the sexiest women in the world to me. I don’t even think she can be in no Bentley either. Nah, she can’t be in no Bentley. Maybe like a Learjet. [Grunts].
XXLMag.com: Lady Gaga?
Lloyd Banks: [Laughs] Lady Gaga? A Beamer, Benz or Bentley…? I’ll pass on that one.
XXLMag.com: Jessica Alba?
Lloyd Banks: Jessica Alba is beautiful, man. She’s kinda petite, small. I’ll say she’s a Beamer. I’d whip that around nice.
XXLMag.com: Alicia Keys?
Lloyd Banks: You know it’s funny, Alicia Key is like, we kinda close in age, but from the very beginning her music has always been, it reached an older audience as well. So she gotta be like a Phantom or something. I feel like one day, if not already, she’s gonna be respected like the artists she respected coming up.
XXLMag.com: Britney Spears?
Lloyd Banks: Britney Spears? Out of a Beamer, Benz or Bentley? I don’t know, man. Just do a record first then I’ll tell you. Just get a record together. She gotta make a comeback.
XXLMag.com: Rocsi from 106 & Park?
Lloyd Banks: Rocsi from 106 & Park? I don’t know. I don’t wanna say the wrong thing. They keep switching my name up with Rocsi. I don’t have no problem with Rocsi, she’s a beautiful young lady. I’ma say a Beamer, too.
Lloyd Banks: [Laughs] Shout out to Olivia, man, she’s keep poking at me in fuckin’ interviews and shit—lying on me. I don’t know; I’m gonna hold off on her because she might say some shit that make me call her another car.
XXLMag.com: Any other girls that you might think might be a Beamer, Benz, or Bentley or is your dream girl?
Lloyd Banks: My dream girl? …I’ll keep it under wraps and let you know what happens after I’m done with her. —Anslem Samuel
