Lloyd Banks Talks Collabo With Joe Budden, Fabolous & Royce Da 5’9” [VIDEO]

As fans already know, Lloyd Banks was a chatterbox during yesterday’s Spotlight UStream show. Besides revealing that Nas may possibly be included on his collaboration with Kanye West, the Boy Wonder told XXL how he got together with former rival Joe Budden.

The G-Unit rapper is just one of four lyrical heavy MCs to be included on the New Jersey MC’s highly anticipated posse cut, “Remember the Titans” from the JB’s forthcoming release, Mood Muzik 4. Apparently Banks was at first very hesitant about jumping on the song when Budden initially approached him during last year’s Thisis50 Fest.

“First time I met [Joe] was in the Governor’s Island show that we had last summer,” he said. “We had spoke…and he was like, ‘Yo, I want you to get on a record’ and I’m like, ‘Joe, I’m so used to you talkin’ shit.’ I didn’t know what to make of this right here.” [Watch below]

Banks said that all four rappers were not in the studio at the same time to lay down their verses and that he hasn’t heard the finished copy, but he’s not worried about who had the best verse. As far as he’s concerned, “that’s the part of hip-hop that got a lil corny.”

Mood Muzik 4 is coming out on October 26, while Banks’s Hunger for More 2 comes out a month later on November 23. —Jesse Gissen

    Banks is one of the best out.
    I think he can be one of the GOATS if he got in the studio wit the right people and made timeless music.
    He’s always been a top tier lyricist, i only thought he was missing the production.


    XXL, PLEASE get rid of that old lady…we wanna hear banks, not her.

    I think Banks can be one of the game’s best as long as he stays away from all that suck ass fake beef and just make good music. This year is the 1st sense o4 where I really looked forward to his music coming out. He’s focused again.
