G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks has taken things a step further after hinting at an upcoming Cold Corner 3 mixtape by revealing plans to first drop a Gangsta Grillz underground effort.
Rather than feed into the speculation, Banks cleared things up over Twitter this weekend.
"to clear things up Gangsta Grillz up next!! followed by Cold Corner 3!!," Banks tweeted Sudnay (November 18). (Lloyd Banks' Twitter)
Prior to the clarification, Banks hinted at an addition to his popular Cold Corner mixtape series.
Lloyd Banks is currently touring all over the world but he's ready to feed some new music to us. I still think he needs to promote his previous projects better, first. Shoot a few music videos for example. It almost feels like he hates coming in front of the camera because I can't think of any other reason why he wouldn't. Back to the topic. Banks hinted ("getting COLD! out..know what that means??") on working on the Cold Corner series yesterday and producer Cardiak later confirmed ("Cardiak x @Lloydbanks ...... What da f*ck u think is gonna happen!!!!??? #flatline #coldcorner3") it on Twitter. Cold Corner 3 on the way. (HHNM)
New York Knicks' star Carmelo Anthony recently gave the rapper props for his V6 mixtape's success.

Despite the success, G-Unit leader 50 Cent downplayed Banks' V6 release a few months ago.
"Dropping mixtapes...that was my '02 strategy. That's 2002 marketing. That's old. You did nothing if you did that. Look what I've done with The Lost Tape or The Big 10. There's videos for everything that was on the tapes. If you're going to just wing it and drop a mixtape...pick the highlights that people like most and shoot 'em. Go shoot the video." (XXL Mag)
