Lloyd Banks Takes Shots at Rick Ross During NYC Show

Last night (December 21), Queens rapper Lloyd Banks performed at New York City’s B.B. Kings. The streets may have been filled with snow and slush, but the bad weather didn’t stop fans from coming out to see the G-Unit solider.

Banks ran through classic mixtape cuts, including “Victory Freestyle,” before he took fans back to choice selections off his platinum debut, The Hunger For More, like “I’m So Fly” and “On Fire.” Blue Hefner balanced out the show with more solo material from his second LP Rotten Apple.

Towards the end of the show, Banks told the DJ to stop the music so he could ask the crowd a question. “How do y’all feel about the police,” he asked. In true N.W.A fashion, the audience replied with, “Fuck the police!”

Banks then got the crowd to chant “Fuck Rick Ross,” which set the stage for Banks to tear into the Miami boss’ character on “Officer Down.” From there, Banks closed out his set spittin’ his verse off crooner Joe’s “Ride With You” and G-Unit classics, like “Rider, Pt. 2.” —Donovan Moore

    G unit a ready lost
    te brand is dead
    bank is just try hold to beef with ross kep him going
    bet thimg for banks is do his own thing and dont let 50 cent produce is next album

    50 cent wil flop it

    • GregSIDE

      I co-sign that. Banks gotta lot of talent. His first LP was fuckin dope. He was spittin’ some real slick shit. He needs to figure out what he’s gonna do when G-unit breaks down. As soon as Jimmy and Interscope realize there will never be another Get Rich or Die Trying it’s over.

  • gift

    banks got spits to a degree, but that rotten apple album was horrible. I fucks wit his first shit though

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

    We all know Banks got raps, & we all know Ross doesn’t. I’d hate to think such a talented dude feels like Rick is his piggyback ride back into our conversations. It’s time to let that shit go, & get back to that hardwork ethic that earned him his respect. & that shit was way before ‘Officer Down’. Fire, indeed, but c’mon Banks. Leave that clown to his finest linens & crabmeats.

  • General

    I’ve said a million times, as long as Banks stays under 50′s shadows, he will only be known as a member of the group G-Unit and one of 50′s weed carriers…

    He’s got the talent to be on his own, but ain’t never gonna happen until he mans up and steps out on his own and leaves nonsense like this to clowns like 50

  • Prototype81

    Grands, its beyond publicity and using ross as a crutch to conversation. Its a point hes trying to get across. Banks hates ross and everything he stands for. If i was a rapper on a similar level I would be saying the same shit. its not about publicitty or name droppin its about getting as many people to hate ross as possible and maybe someday he will disappear. ross is a fucking disgrace to hip hop music, a joke, a mockery to the artform. The more people that hate him the more chance he’ll leave. 1 man cant make a difference but many can.

    • Cami

      Prototype81 if you believe that Ross is a mockery and disgrace to “hip hop” then I suggest you upgrade your beliefs about every so called “rapper” that has hit the stage in the late 90′s early 2000′s BECAUSE MAJORITY OF THEM MY FRIEND ARE A DISGRACE there is only a selected few that IS REALLY HIP HOP!!!!

      as far as Mr. Banks goes that whole outburst was childish, seems like Mr. banks is a HATER if you ask me….and yes if you do follow the media you would realize its all being done for ratings. with that said Banks did that so people could have something to talk about after the show. a move that prolly would have been pulled by his “Daddy” 50 Cent…..Banks did what he was paid to do and that is “entertain”, the same SHIT Ross does!

      P.S Banks isn’t that “powerful” or GOOD that he can get PPL To hate ROSS if 50 Could NOT DO IT HE DAMN SURE CAN NOT!

    V5 mixtape comin soon

    • General

      Funny cuz Ross got 3 #1 albums and Banks ain’t even got a label to drop his 3rd album…

      • Jseres

        Funny since when do record sales dictate talent? Banks has flow, Ross has none. Just because little white girls buy Ross’s fucking albums doesn’t mean he is good what so fucking ever.

  • Naughty NYS

    Yall niggaz is some true Rick Ross haters but what yall fail to realize is that his musical career is doing better than Banks right now. I know Banks got flow but I feel as ross got it in his own way. He might be flamboyant with his “fine linens and crabmeats” but B.I.G. did the same shit in a different way. Not to compare his lyrical stature to Ross but the fact that them niggaz is sayin the same shit on that aspect. Ross may not have the thrown for best lyrics but he could deliver something decent. Listen to all his music and mixtapes before you make a full judgement. Like I said banks is fire and his first album is still in my disc changer but that hating shit is a stunt. Ross is never going to go to one of his shows and say “Fuck Lloyd Banks gay-man-fuckin ass. We hate faggots!” and thats just real talk. Plus that fuckin beef is old as Moses. Let it go.

  • DV8

    its time to let that “Fuck Rick Ross” campaign go. If you want to spark some interest take a shot at Jay-Z (for the fuck of it) or T.I. (again) or Jimmy Iovine for dropping G-Unit like a bad habit after the riding the wave for so long. Or better yet why dont banks focus on putting out better mixtapes and developing a personality that would attract more fans like Tony Yayo has done.

  • ThE illesT

    hell yeah get em’ Banks…. FUCK RICK ROSS!!!
    lets keep it real… Officer Ricky is straight fuckin GARBAGE!

    I’ll put it this way… Ross cant see ANY of u guys’ TOP 10 rappers, no matter who they are!!

  • TheRefriedMexican

    Whateva.

    But Ross is still taking shots @ them so it is what it is…

    • General

      True, I just think Banks need to be more concerned with gettin distribution for a record before he worries about Ross…

      • $ykotic/Don McCaine

        Even we the people can see that getting distribution these days ain’t really a big deal.

        With that being said, seeing how duke is w/o the Unit doing this gig can kinda show & prove he’s doing him right now.

      • nicholasdelorejo

        General, I think the best option for Banks right now is to still be unber 50′s wing. Whenever I hear somebody claim that a side-kick rapper needs to leave their boss’ label and become a solo artist, I never hear about that shit going through. Has that shit ever worked out for Buck? While Game was more successful, his career pails in comparison to 50′s. Right now Game’s career is comparable to Ross’s. I’m just saying that if not too many people bought your albums while under the wing of a major artist with strong label backing, what makes you think leaving that situation is going to make your situation any better as ab independent artist. I’m just saying sometimes the best position for an artist now is to be somebody’s Memphis Bleek.

    Ross is a fake and deserves everything as far as negativity he has comin to him. banks is still nice on the mic and with or without a deal you cant take that away from him. he will drop another hot cd again it will be a matter of time.

  • js416

    banks needs to leave g unit

    also how is rider pt 2 a classic gunit song?

  • Mutada/Mullah Atari

    I appreciate his lyricism and the effort he puts into his lyrics. But his punch lines are derivative of past NY MC’s and nothing truly unique. His “presentation” (No 50) is not much better when compared to other NY rappers living up to their States pedigree, or any of these semi clever battle rappers you see from time to time on WSHH

    Plus

    I Never got the infatuation with cookie monster. yes, he has punch lines a plenty. But the flow is beyond tired, **and some refuse to admit** but duke is a son of Fab.. Duke uses his whole flow sometimes and takes bits and pieces at will. It was funny seeing banks interacting with his father in that WSHH video a few days ago.

    Not to mention his beat selection is terrible 80% of the time, his mix tapes always sound like trash as in no mixing , no mastering, half of the songs do not knock in the the TL.

    Duke needs to focus on his career instead of getting at Ross… Love it or hate it but Ross is actually relevant

  • http://-- gaddic

    @Prototype81
    Real Talk
    No matter what a Rick ross stans say
    Banks is by far better lyrically and better flow wise

    The PLK series has way more quality lyrics than Ross’ three albums

    So what if he’s better commercially than Banks -doesn’t mean he’s more talented

    Ross is fake ass rapper that is exposed and instead of leaving in shame you moral less spineless fools still support his music

    Down the line when more “Rosses” show up in the game your support for them will run this rapg ame into the ground
    And it wil be truly DEAD!

    I hate when stupid F*cks bring sales to question a rapper’s skill

    Only two rappers commercially adept are anywhere on the GOAT list
    2pac and Eminem!

  • tommygunz

    this is for the dude name like mines….change itt im the real Gunz…. nd Lloyd bank has no flow….the whole G UNOT!!!

  • Vic De Zen

    Lloyd Bank is alright. I find the Rick Ross beef pointless, like most beefs in hip hop nowadays. Just concentrate on making good music, that should be it.

  • http://theinternetbully.blogspot.com THE INTERNET BULLY

    SCHOOL MUST BE OUT NOW CUZ A LOT OF LIL NIGGAZ TALKIN A LOT OF TRASH. I EXPECTED THE USUAL ONE OR TWO COMMENTS, CUZ THIS SHIT AIN’T NEWS, AND WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT BANKS? ROTTEN APPLE TANKED, IF YOU AIN’T IN THE CITY OR THIS IS 50 THEN YOU PROBABLY HAVEN’T HEARD HIS MIX SHIT, AND THAT FIRST ALBUM IS SO FAR BACK, HIS ‘FIRE’ DONE COOLED THE FUCK OFF. I’M NO FAN OF THE COPS, BUT THAT FAT FUCKER ROSS HAD A CD THAT SMASHED 50 AND ALMOST EVERYONE ELSE THIS YEAR. DEEPER THAN RAP HAD DOPE BEATS AND SOME DECENT MC’ING PLUS MORE VIDEOS THAN ANYONE, IF YOU CAN’T RESPECT THAT…THEN KILL YOURSELF BITCHES. THE BULLY HAS SPOKEN

    Go Banks what a way to stay relevant going at Ross When trying to stay Relevant goes Wrong

  • Mc macoy.

  • daydeezy

  • KoolClint

    Regardless of what ya’ll say about Ross, he ain’t going nowhere…He’s part of the Yacht Club.

  • mrproh

    stop with g-uit groupie shit..that shit been dead…..move on

  • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

    You know Hip Hop is in bad shape when heads start supporting fake rappers.Ross cant rap his beats get him by. Dude stole his name from a real drug dealer named Rick Ross. And he is a renta cop. Ooops I mean was a prison guard. Then tried to lie about it and cover it up. Man get your heads out of your asses. So hypothetically you all would basically still support 2pac and Biggie if you found out one day that their music was actually made by some white dude in a garage and they just portayed like they made the music and where really just paid actors. MAN IM JUST SMH. Hopefully this doesnt become the standard in hip hop. Though it is startin to look like it. Kinda like Lil Wayne talkin about bein a hard ass blood, and sayin in his song that he aint never ran from a nigga and aint goin to pick today to start runnin. Though when keepin it real went wrong he hid in his truck like a little bitch when him and birdman’s little entourage rolled through colton city cali .And that dude 40 gloccs posse stopped it and asked them to get out and they wouldnt.
