Lloyd Banks is finally free of all the drama with his label – Interscope and he’s gettin’ back to the streets where he came from. Pop the hood for more
Last week, Lloyd Banks showed love and broke down his new mixtape. Now, the G-Unit soldier is focusing on making a real LP. He’s excited to be free from Interscope for his solo projects.
“I was ready to make a move,” Banks said about leaving the ‘Scope. “I’m a brand-new engine. If anything, it’s their loss. It’s been a dark shadow cast upon that. That’s why you hear [Funk Master] Flex on the radio [boycotting Interscope], because it’s an aura created around that machine, and the artists automatically get smacked in the head.”
Banks is referring to a recent on-air tirade from Flex, who promised to not play any Interscope music because of the way he was treated by one of the label’s executives.
“[An artist signed to Interscope] doesn’t even know what’s going on,” Banks added. “You just turn on the radio, and they’re saying, ‘F— Interscope Records,’ and you fall into that batch. So it’s almost a foul taste in the mouth when they deliver the record. I felt it’s time for me to go somewhere where it’s not biased and I get a fair shot. There’s a lot of stuff on the table right now. You don’t wanna speak about it until it gets ironed out all the way.”
By the way, the rumors can stop right now: Banks isn’t leaving G-Unit. Even though 50 is the boss, Banks and Yayo are co-founders. Can you imagine the Unit without either one of them? Banks said he’s still moving under the team’s umbrella, whether he goes with another major or even independent.
He’s not stupid, he’s not gonna bite the hand that feeds him like Young Buck did. We all know how Young Buck ended up.
