Lloyd Banks Wants to Work With J. Cole, Nipsey Hussle & Jay Rock

XXLmag.com caught up with Lloyd Banks at his show with Reflection Eternal in New York City on Thursday (April 29) and it seems like the G-Unit rapper is really feeling this year’s XXL Freshman Class.

Banks—who was also celebrating his 28th birthday last night—said he would love to work with three students in particular. “You got your J. Coles out there, you got Nipsey Hussle…Jay Rock. There’s so much new talent out there, I just wanna work and make classic music.”

Speaking of collaborations, LB told XXL that he recently finished the remix to his hit song “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” and the song will feature a lot of unexpected guests. Although he refused to reveal the track’s lineup, he did say it will feature six different artists.

According to Banks “Beamer, Benz” has had huge success on SoundScan and has made several labels take notice of him, now that he’s a free agent. “I done sold over a quarter million singles…completely independent…labels are calling; even my old label’s calling.”

Look out for the “Beamer, Benz or Bentley (Remix)” to be released shortly. —Amber McKynzie

    Can’t hate on banks. I hope more established artists be willing to work with new ones instead of tryin to parasite off them.

    I can’t wait for that remix, but damn, 6 niggaz going to be on it? WTF! I hope they are only dropping a few bars and they all blended in together. One of the best parts about the original is it was a short track which helped give it alot of replayability.
    He has to have Juelz on the remix for sure. And we already know FAB is on it because he did an interview where he said Banks asked him for a new verse for it.
    Also wonder if they will use the same exact production or tweek it a little.
    I hope it lives up to the hype.
    And please, this time, make a quality music video for it. That last shit was brutual to watch and did the song no justice at all.

    HFM2 Summer 2010!

    I’m glad to see NY starting to work with each other again and make a strong come back. Sad to say but Lloyd Banks being under 50 Cent kept him from the spotlight. We all know 50 really caused NY’s Hip-Hop downfall. Starting beef with everyone caused the south to jump in and snatch the Hip-Hop spotlight. Almost everyone in the south collabs with each other…that’s why they’re on top right now. Since Banks is a free agent, I think he’s realizing that he can’t be one sided. But he wants to work with J Cole, and Cole is signed to Hov…hmmmmm, we’ll see how this works out.

  • Gift

    GLAD TO C BANKS BACK ON HIS SHIT. tHE SINGLE IS BANGIN, AND NOW THAT HE’S A FREE AGENT, IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S DOING BETTER. A QUARTER OF A MIL INDEPENDENT? SHIT JUST GIVE ME A THIRD OF THAT PAPER LOL! DO YA THANG BANKS.

  • heartlandG

    Mayne, I been sleep on J. Cole AND Nipsey, jus got they mixtape this weekend…FIRE oh and I just got on dat Wiz Khalif too that ni99a cold!

  • bylaw99

    I been tellin niggas dont sleep on banks, he had that rotten apple album that was dark because 1 of his parents passed and one was sick but he still had that joint Keri Hilson which was dope. Now that he’s independent and 50 made peace with other NY rappers he can collab more. Good shit banks. PLK Season

    “unexpected guests”? Hmmm… haha now I wanna know who they are! Everybody’s already doing freestyles on that beat, so I don’t know who they could get. Hopefully they get someone who hasn’t freestyled on the beat already. I’m thinking Nicki Minaj for some reason, but maybe not? I don’t even like her that much, but I’m just speculating.
