Lloyd Banks jumped on Twitter today and said he was hanging it up.
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!!— Lloydbanks (@Lloydbanks) March 16, 2018
With that being said..I think it’s time to lay it down 💯— Lloydbanks (@Lloydbanks) March 16, 2018
But, apparently, it was all a troll of the media.
He got back on Twitter this evening and posted a video of Ric Flair's famous "I will never retire!" speech.

Then he explained why he pretended he had.
Just goes to show you what a mess the industry has become..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..have a good day— Lloydbanks (@Lloydbanks) March 16, 2018
What do you think of Banks's little experiment? It certainly got him attention.
