Lloyd Banks Disregards Claims Of G Unit Departure
Posted on April 29, 2008 by Jamie Slaughter
Following Young Buck's departure from G-Unit, there has been much speculation as to who will be next to break away from the group. Much of the speculation has hinted at Lloyd Banks being the most likely member to next part ways. Banks recently told MTV that his loyalty towards the group is unconditional and that he will remain loyal to 50 Cent until their possible demise.
I'mma ride the wave when [the fans] are yelling, 'G-Unit,' and I'mma ride the wave when they saying, 'G-Unot,' "Banks told MTV. "That's it. It's like being a hard-core Knick fan. I'mma be a Knick fan, and they lose every year. But I'm not gonna be the one to just come at the [championship] parade and be like, 'Yeah!' I wouldn't feel right in here. When they doing my 'E! True Hollywood Story,' its not gonna [say that] I changed."
The accusations flying around suggesting he will be next to leave, seem to be taking quite insultingly towards his character.
"I hear people say things like, 'Banks is next [to leave].' It's frustrating," Banks says, "because it takes away from everything I put into the brand. This [G-Unit logo] is my first tattoo. Co-founder! We play just as important a part as 50 does.
"When you say, 'He's next,' it discredits everything I put into this. I wasn't riding the wave to go with my own wave. I was riding the wave 'cause this is what I wanted to do with the people I grew up with," he continued.
Banks also commented on the recent departure of Young Buck. "If you don't like , I don't like you: plain and simple. I don't understand why it's so hard for people to get that," Banks told MTV. "I don't hate Buck or nothing like that. He just made decisions that were premature. A lot of them were affecting 50. And at the end of the day, it affects us too."
