News: Lloyd Banks Confirms 50 Cent For "Beamer" Remix, "It's Not Gonna Be What Anybody Expects"

G-Unit's Lloyd Banks has confirmed 50 Cent will be featured on one of the upcoming regional remixes for his "Beamer, Benz or Bentley" single.
There is also speculation that Eminem may be on his remix.
"I just mixed the remix last night," Banks said in an interview. "I was in the studio till about 4:30 or 5 in the morning, me and 50, sitting there getting it right. All I can say is that it's gonna be crazy. It's not gonna be what anybody expects -- in more than one way." That's one guest spot down. Now what about Mr. Mathers? Last week, the rapper released a freestyle over Banks' track, but the G-Unit MC was tight-lipped about Slim Shady possibly appearing on the new track. He did reveal, though, that he'll be joined by "five or six" others rappers on the "Beamer" remix. "It's different regions. I'm getting crazy on there," he said. "I can say that much." (MTV)
Speculation on 50's contribution landed on the Internet earlier this week.
50 Cent will be on the official remix to Lloyd Banks' "Beamer, Benz, Bentley" coming to the airwaves sooner than you think. Are you anxious for a new Fiddy verse? We wonder if he will be responding to any of the jabs thrown at him from Shyne's new diss record? (The Life Files)
Last March, Banks said he would be making regional remixes to the smash hit.
"I've got so much love and a good response on this record that it's actually going to have to be more than one remix because it goes by markets," Banks told VIBE, careful not to drop names. "You got Down South, you got the West coast, you got the East coast. Different regions take different records. I thought the Maino version was cool, I like the Joe Budden verse. Fab is cool too and there's so many more, but those are the ones that stick out to me. They're playing that Joell Ortiz version a lot in NY, too. I still think mine is the tightest, but hey [laughs]." (VIBE)
Aside from remixes, the rapper is currently in record label negotiations.
"A lot of people, Def Jam, Interscope. I think they have the sorry bag in [the left] hand and the let's talk bag in [the right] hand. I mean, it's a business at the end of the day. I understood that. I came into the game at 20 years-old. Maybe 19 years-old and nobody comes in experienced. You hit your bumps and things are looking really bright for me right now." ("Sucker Free Countdown")
