G-Unit leader 50 Cent has released footage of a prank he and Eminem pulled on groupmate Lloyd Banks backstage at last week’s Yankee Stadium New York City concert.
While Banks was unaware of a hidden camera in the room, Em and 50 accuse him of saying he didn’t want Slim Shady to appear on his upcoming Hunger For More 2 album.
“Eh, yo, so Fif had mentioned to me that, he wanted me to jump on your record or whatever and I got a little bit of down time coming up this week when this is all done,” Em told Banks. “But I guess [manager] Paul [Rosenberg] had reached out or whatever to see if you wanted me to be on the record and he said you weren’t sure if you wanted to have me on the record or whatever.” (This Is 50)
50 added fuel to the fire by questioning Banks’ loyalty.
”Did you say something to somebody about you didn’t want him on the record,” 50 questioned Banks to which the rapper responded, “Why would I say that? To who?” “That’s what was being said from Paul. Man, this sh*t is getting crazy. I’m gonna be straight up with you, all right? I think this sh*t is getting a little funny between me, you and [Tony] Yayo and everything else that’s going on because look at how crazy it is actually getting him to rap on your record and I don’t understand what’s going on anymore. I don’t know, when I talked to Paul, Paul pulled me to the side and he’s talking to me like, ‘Yo, what’s going on. Why you don’t want Em? Are you kidding me? He’s the biggest rapper, you can’t get any bigger.” (This Is 50)
Despite ending the prank by presenting Banks with a plaque for his “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” record, Fif still decided to post the footage on Twitter.
“I got this b*tch n*gga on tape back stage. Me and em confronted him this sucker a** n*gga I’m a show yal the tape to f*ck it,” Fif tweeted Friday (September 24).
“This the tape backstage me and eminem we confronted this b*tch a** lloydbanks. Watch this its crazy http://ning.it/dp4x6f”
“Hahahaha yo banks was shook back stage. He started thinking of who to blame it on. Lol” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Last week, 50 also tweeted Em and Kanye West would be featured on Banks’ upcoming disc.
“Banks got a really heavy album. Hunger For more 2 is gonna be classic! Me Em, kanye, on it. The 23rd is gonna be big,” 50 tweeted early Wednesday (September 15) morning. (50 Cent’s Twitter)
The Hunger For More 2 is scheduled to drop Tuesday, November 23rd.
