Lloyd Banks Speaks on Lost Boyz Comparison [With XXcLusive Video]

Back in 1995 the Lost Boyz had the hip-hop car anthem with their hit, “Jeeps, Lex Coupes, Bimas and Benz.” Fifteen years later, fellow Queens, New York rep Lloyd Banks has everybody singing along to his similarly-titled single with Juelz Santana, “Beamer, Benz or Bentley.” XXLMag.com recently caught up with the G-unit rapper to see if he was inspired by the classic LB track.

“’Lex Coupe, Bimas and Benz,’ that’s something I thought about after,” he explained. “’Cause I asked somebody, ‘When was the last record that was like that?’ Then you hear like ‘Chevy Ridin’ High.’ It was always old-school records. So ‘Lex Coupe’… that was probably like the last one.” [Watch Below]

“It’s crazy ’cause we grew up in the same neighborhood,” he said of the Lost Boyz. “Rest in Peace to [Freaky] Tah, I actually went to school with his brother.”

Banks dropped the video for “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” earlier today (March 15). —Elan Mancini with reporting by Anslem Samuel
