50 Cent Stole "In Da Club" Hook From Lloyd Banks, Bang'Em Smurf Says

Bang'Em Smurf refers to 50 Cent as Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Bucks' "daddy," says the group will flop.

During a newly-published interview with Mikey T The Movie Star, former G-Unit affiliate Bang’Em Smurf seemed less than impressed with the group’s reunion at Hot 97 Summer Jam a few weeks ago. He even shared his belief that the reunion took place because Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Buck were getting low on money.

According to Smurf, 50 Cent’s lack of camaraderie towards other artists has prevented the other G-Unit members from working with the artists he says are “popping right now.”

“I didn’t really feel no kind of way because I [knew] Banks, Yayo, and Bucks situation financially,” Bang’Em Smurf said. “You know what I mean? At the end of the day they money getting low, so they had no choice but to run back to 50. Because 50 got them in contracts and he won’t let them out. So, it’s not like they could get money anywhere outside of G-Unit. Because remember at the end of the day the industry don’t fuck with 50 and these niggas no more. Like look at all the niggas that’s winning. From the Khaleds to the French Montanas. To Puffy to Ross to all the major hitters right now [that] are relevant in the game. They don’t associate with 50. He burnt like all his bridges with them. So, at the end of the day that trickled down on his artists too. So, they can’t really get no major money with the niggas that’s poppin right now…It ain’t gon’ work. It ain’t gon’ last.”

Bang’Em Smurf later made quite the bold statement when he revealed that he believes 50 Cent stole the hook for “In Da Club” from Lloyd Banks. He also called 50 Cent’s Animal Ambition album a flop and said that G-Unit will flop as well.

“50’s Animal Ambition just dropped…he flopped,” he said. “Once he flop G-Unit is gonna flop even extra hard…Banks is not really a street kid or a hustler. He don’t know nothing about hustling. Getting money out there scrambling in the streets. So, in the industry it’s gonna be the same way. You know what I mean? They depend on 50. That’s their daddy…That ‘In Da Club’ hook was a Lloyd Banks hook. 50 took that off of Lloyd Banks and did it over. The biggest record in the world today was a Banks hook.”

In a series of interviews with Mikey T The Movie Star, Bang’Em Smurf has criticized Ja Rule and Prodigy for releasing memoirs and shared his thoughts on Slowbucks getting his chain snatched during G-Unit’s Summer Jam performance.

    I swear Trinis are born HATERS.

  • The counter

    50 Cent Animal Ambition sells is at 81,136 right now. I think that's really good for an independent album because that's millions of dollars that goes straight to his pocket off the album sells alone

  • Blake

    Honestly 50/G-Unit got extremely popular way to fast and I think when you get to a certain point people just start to hate and are ready for the next thing... Still to this day they broke records in the industry that no other rap artists have surpassed yet so for an actual fan from the beginning you have a much better understanding of what actually happened. Its almost better to listen to their music now knowing that they are less popular. Knowing they make todays rappers a joke because more then half are fake as shit.. If you support G-Unit then you are a true fan of hip hop period...Idk Im just a fan of G-Unit clearly lol... For real though 50 can kill your favorite artist with a simple ass flow and a gun shot in the background.. Probably because your favorite rappers is lying -__-

  • BanksUnhappyInITCVideo

    I was watching the ITC video and realized that Banks was not in a mood that celebrates the success of a friend. It kinda make sense to me, but still I always knew the GUnit style was Banks invention...just a thought

  • Wes

    That was prob the best interview I ever heard.

  • chris

    The funny thing about dude is that he lost his chance to be part of maybe not g unit the group but g unit as a whole..according to 50 in a interview years ago the nigga couldn't separate streets from business and got kicked off the road with G Unit and they haven't been cool since..he was apart of early shit they did because on earlier mixtapes 50 had songs with him so he kinda fucked up because he had a chance and blew it..

      way more to it than that he bailed him out many times before he said enough is enough

      Nah theyre beef started when Smurf went to jail and 50 wouldnt pay his bail after GRoDT just sold millions. He felt slighted because he said he was the one sleepin on 50's couch and riding around NY looking for the dude that shot him

    • Anonymous

      true he was giving niggas orders in the streets or ordering shootings saying it was coming from 50 when 50 didnt know bout it

  • young

    this bum still doesn't know how the music biz works. g-unit reuniting is strictly to generate show revenues. them not releasing anything since 2007, then the fake beef orchestrated by 50, then the reunion : all to tour again. whether they sell records or not is immaterial. secondly, smurf is opining on all this skyping from an internet cafe in whatever place he was deported to. how is this bum that has 50 cents to his name calling out other dudes' finances? sour grapes my n(((a

  • T Balla

    50 latest album was just a sound check. Don't get shit twisted, this guy has made hundreds of millions so i think he know what he doing. Give them a lil taste of me with animal ambitions, bring my squad back, give it a lil time game gone come back, they gone reconcile, game gone drop his lil blood money comp then his next album the documentary and fifty album street king immortal gone have collabs with the two to seal the deal. Your hearing it first from T.Clark right now..

  • tu

    50 Cent and Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks co-OWN G-Unit. FYI 50 waited until the contract with Interscope ended so he can bring the Unit back. The only reason they stayed "low" was because SMS headphones and Jimmy wanst going to let G-Unit shine.

  • jooce

    Does this clown know that French did the same numbers as 50 first week and he's with a major? Khaled did like 29k first week lol. Ross with all the radio play in the world just so happens to do 179k every first week and to me that lets you know its bs.If you show me another artist who does the same exact numbers back to back, I will show you my prom pics with Beyonce. I hate to say it but when it comes to numbers there is only a few cats moving units like that and that's Drake, Wayne, Kendrick, Jay and Kanye. Every other artist is on a lower tier and I'm not talking about ability im just talking sales.i know I didn't mention Em but he is on a tier by himself. Trust me French just like Ross is being forced on people's eardrums. I don't know one person that has a French album. Last point is why is this man talking about he knows their financial situation? I hope 50 puts them on to business outside of music. He has a deal with Disney to manufacture the headphones and that's the kind of stuff these guys should be looking at not some wing spot.

      Smurf is hiding his hurt of being deported and this is his way of staying in touch. He's been in the streets and jail for too long to go be a 9-5 guy. Pretty sure he has some currency and a hustle somehow but really about it when it comes to that guy. At least shyne be seeing dudes in different countries and will get people to listen to a song

    Yep French gets another platinum plaque for his single with CB and Rozay still has the best selling rap album of 2014 while Khaled is dropping his 8th album damn near and he aint even a rapper.... Winners. Banks could have had a much more productive career of he would have been allowed to make music with other rappers that his Daddy had beef with.

      Only thing French Montana has done is sing on some other rappers song. He hasn't one of his own songs come out yet. Can he even rap. Or is he just New York's version of a corny motherfucker who can't sing or rap.

  • blakeee

    1. Banks is an independent artist so I don't know why he said they are all tied up in contracts 2. If they are all hurting for money and 50 is such an asshole why would he even be willing to reunite G-Unit? 3. If 50 was making records with ross and all these other lame ass rappers he would still be in the same boat. The reason why 50 is not as big as before is because he refuses to make the type of hip hop that is popular these days. So if you are a true fan of hip hop and know your shit then you wouldnt even think to type a comment saying anything close to 50 sucks... Just sayin

      A Drake feature would be dope I guess. Honestly, at this point he can pretty much make any type of record with anybody he wants too and to me should still be considered an authentic artist because he really was never so quick to work with any of these so called popular artists to begin with... Even when his second album dropped we had that mainstream candy shop record to go along with everything.... But following that album is also a shit ton of dope G-Unit tracks, mix-tapes, and albums that came out so its like what else can you ask for? And since Ive actually heard all of 50s music and G-Unit as a whole its been pretty much been drilled in my head that if 50 wanted to sing on the entire album it would still sound Gangsta as fuck!..... Nah I'm Talkin 'Bout?

      lol Its a difference he changed the hook around, writing niggahs songs is something else. Everybody from Jay, Nas, KRS1 mad cats get an idea from someone in their camp then flip it around. Banks didn't have the track to the song so why would it be a hit for him?

  • real shit

    its 50 always sucks... 50 flop...50 this 50 that..yadayadayada . Its so obvious that the only reason Ross,french, puffy and them dudes are relevant is because rappers all came with each other to save themselves. Wayne ran away from 50. there only way to survive is to dick ride each other.

    Doesn't surprise me that the hook may have been banks'. The real backstory to a lot of songs and albums which never really come to light until years, sometimes over a decade later would surprise ppl. Just cuz an artist puts out a track doesn't mean he wrote it, produced it, or that it wasn't meant for someone else entirely, that it was recycled 100 times. Rarely do we get good music these days that was strictly made with some intent. Singles are accidental smashes mostly. I've changed the way I see hip hop as a genre over the last 2 decades. But the real back stories are really interesting and informative about how the industry really works. So big up fif, your biggest career smash hit was pieced together, now go help feed your pups, don't leave them starving begging for scraps.
