“To be honest with you, it came from Layzie Bone,” Banks said. “I never told anybody that, except for him.”
B.Dot followed up by asking Banks if he ever wanted to be in the legendary group, to which he replied: “Everybody did. Don’t sit here and act like… c’mon, man.”
Layzie Bone took to his Instagram Stories to react to the props from the former G-Unit soldier, sharing a still from the interview and writing: “What a honor.”

Lloyd Banks’ “Lazy Lloyd” nickname first came to light when 50 Cent mentioned it in his 2020 New York Times Bestseller Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter.
The Power mogul had compared Banks’ lackadaisical attitude to the Lazy Lloyd ink on his arm, but according to the massive advance Banks got on his sophomore album Rotten Apple, he wasn’t as lazy as the G-Unit boss made him seem.
“My advance for my second album was like a million dollars,” Banks told Rap Radar, with Miller interjecting: “Those days are over.”
“Yeah, I never told nobody that, but yeah” Banks continued. “But then imagine what the third one was supposed to be.”
