Former Murder Inc. artist Lloyd recently spoke on his close ties with Lil Wayne and the significance of his friendship with Young Money leader.
Known for their popular collaborations, Lloyd gave his thoughts on Wayne labeling him as a "friend" in the recording industry.
"I believe that a friend is there for you in a time of need, it's someone who always looks at the brighter side of things makes the best of out any situation and it's someone who you can count on to be there for you. I hope that's what he meant when he said that. [Signing to Young Money,] that's for me to know and for you to find out." (Hip Hop Wired)
Still a free agent, Lloyd said he was in no rush to sign to Young Money if given the opportunity.
"A lot of people think I'm already signed over there, but the truth is that I'm still a free agent and I haven't signed with Young Money/Cash Money," he said in an interview. "I don't want to get into specifics, but I have been talking to them and to some other labels. It's an important decision and we're not gonna rush it. We're both working, but not on anything specifically together. He has The Rebirth and The Carter 4, and I'm working on my new album and a couple mixtapes. There were rumors about us doing a project together a few years back, but that was just wishful thinking by the fans." (New Lil Wayne)
Lloyd recent spoke on landing a guest feature on the new Young Money album, We Are Young Money.
"Ah man. That's easy. I'm just a good friend to Wayne and Baby," Lloyd revealed in an interview. "I respect them. I respect their grind. I respect their minds. So they brought me in to be designating; to be the [designated hitter]. They wanted a hit and they brought me in. We came up with something that was dope in 'Bed Rock.' We'll be performing it for the first few times coming up. We're just doing us. It's good to be around a crew of talented young brothers." (Honey Mag)
Earlier this year, the singer addressed rumors of leaving Murder Inc. for Wayne's Young Money.
"I think that's the question on everyone's mind," Lloyd said about the possibility of signing to Young Money. "No, I wasn't offered a deal, uhm, if anything I think about it because I'm big fans of their work and we all good friends. We've worked [together on songs] a lot in the past, you know, we broke bread together and I think a lot of fans would probably want to see that happen. I just wanna win, I just wanna be successful. I think wherever I go, I'm gonna be successful." ("Jenny Boom Boom")
