“We on fire, up in here, it’s burnin’ hot we on fire!” March 16, former G-Unit member, Lloyd Banks, made a post on twitter that had people believing he was ready to retire from the rap game.
“I fell in love with Hip Hop over 25 years ago..it was that thing I turned to during good times and bad..just wanna say thank you to the artist B4 me that inspired me..and send my appreciation to everyone that supported me till this day THANK YOU!! With that being said…I think it’s time to lay it down.”
Despite what the people thought, Banks responded shutting down the rumors with a video of Ric Flair, the wrestling legend, saying “he will never retire.” He also shared more of his thoughts by saying, “Just goes to show you what a mess the industry has become,” he said of the quick reactions. “They’ll rather cover everything that happens around the music than the actual music itself. I hope all these outlets support me when I drop.” 50 Cent, head of G-Unit, even went ahead and made jokes about the retirement rumors on his Instagram.
The lyrical vocalist is best known for being a part of the rap group G-Unit as well as his own solo career. He’s definitely made a name for himself throughout the years which is why his fans were pretty disappointed when they thought he was going to retire. Banks formed G-Unit along with childhood friends 50 Cent and Tony Yayo and have been inseparable ever since. As far as his solo career, Banks last dropped H.F.M 2 (Hunger for More 2) in 2010 and has released mixtapes ever since. With the false announcement, maybe Banks will have some new music in store for us. As for now, we can keep listening to the ‘Beamer, Benz, or Bentley’ rap mogul.
He makes this rap stuff look easy.
