Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent are in a healthy place when it comes to their friendship. It's something that Banks told GQ in a newly released interview.
The two rappers were close friends before fame, which carried over to their group G-Unit. But they had a falling out afterward, with 50 calling Banks "Lazy" in his book Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter.
“We’re brothers," said Banks. “We came into this together. We’re never all going to be doing the same thing at the same time at this point in our careers ... The last conversation I had with 50 was basically him telling me to get whatever I left out there. Because some hiatuses were planned and some weren’t ... But I can’t sit and cry about spilled milk. I’ve gotta go out there and make it happen. We did something special that will never be done again. Honestly, there are more positive moments than anything else. That’s where I’m at with [50 Cent and Tony Yayo]: We’re brothers and it’s always going to be that way.”
Banks spoke about 50 in his interview with Joe Budden as well and said that he learned how to write songs by watching the G-Unit leader.
