DMX criticized Lloyd Banks by questioning his spot on a list of all-time great lyricists, causing the Punchline King to respond.
During a conversation on Instagram Live, DMX questioned Fat Man Scoop’s decision to place Lloyd Banks on a list of all-time great lyricists.
“Lloyd Banks? Lyrical?” he asked. “Quote four bars. Impress me with four bars of his. It shouldn’t be hard.”
When Fat Man Scoop failed to come up with any lyrics that stood out to him from the G-Unit soldier, DMX was somehow proven right. However, Lloyd Banks (and a bunch of angry hip-hop heads) has a bone to pick with him because of the comments. Constantly overlooked, Banks hopped onto Twitter with some kind words for X after hearing his stance.
“Dogman is my guy and all but Wth DMX talkin bout lol @Lloydbanks,” asked one fan on Twitter. “I have no clue..god bless him,” replied the rapper.
Clearly, Lloyd Banks believes he belongs on a list of the best lyricists of all time, which isn’t really that obscure of an opinion. For years, he proved to the world that he can write some of the slickest punch lines in hip-hop so why would he not deserve his spot on the list? It’s not like he didn’t come through every time he stepped into the booth…
What do you make of this? Does Lloyd Banks make your list?
