Lloyd Banks seemingly addresses 50 Cent in his new single Stranger Things.
Banks dropped his highly anticipated album, for the first time in over a decade The Course of the Inevitable. Many people notice that Banks may have spit some bars towards his longtime musical partner, 50 Cent, on the song Stranger Things.
He raps, “when you’re f*cked up, behavior turns irregular quick, sometimes the pressure overwhelms when you’re the head of the clique,” he raps, in the opening verse. “But don’t get ahead of yourself, I ain’t bending for sh*t / Nobody sees your vision until you’re successful.”
“Your favorite’s nowhere near me when I’m dedicated,” he continues, in the second verse. “Always humble, usually disciplined and never hated / Call me quiet, call me lazy, talent never faded / It’s frustrating when your grindin’ ain’t appreciated / Should have been dead in my twenties, shit, at least I made it / Guess I gotta prove myself again, increase your payment.”
50 Cent made similar comments in his book Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter. “While I was out hustling (I actually hustled with his father), Banks was more content staying on his porch and watching the world from there,” explained 50. “Banks wanted things to come to him, as opposed to going out and getting them for himself. That’s not me trying to assassinate his character—the guy has ‘Lazy Lloyd’ tattooed on his arm. He literally wears his laziness on his sleeve.”
