New York rapper Lloyd Banks isn’t retiring after all. The G-Unit member has come forward to shut down speculation about him quitting the rap game.

The Punchline King went to Instagram Friday (March 16) with an epic clip of WWE legend Ric Flair denouncing his own retirement.

Earlier in the day, Lloyd hinted at possible plans to fall back from the hip-hop scene.

Last month, hip-hop producer AraabMuzik talked about how he learns when Banks raps on his instrumentals.

“[Lloyd Banks] always uses my beats. [Lloyd] always goes on YouTube. [Lloyd Banks] won’t have to do that anymore with License Lounge. We can send him a direct link and he can get all the AraabMuzik beats he wants. I don’t produce anything for [Lloyd Banks] directly, Banks just takes it and raps on it and puts it out. Then someone will at me on social media and I’ll know it’s out. There goes another freestyle to a beat I put out eighty years ago. Music is timeless. I’ve always been ahead of my time.” (Billboard)

In January, G-Unit’s Young Buck saluted Banks’ recent freestyle releases.
