Lloyd Banks is rising above it all.
Over the weekend, Rick Ross tried to drag the former G-Unit member into his ongoing feud with 50 Cent. While listening to Banks’ 2004 hit “I’m So Fly,” Rozay took a shot at Banks by questioning his finances.
“Banks, you still got some money?” he asked. “Show us what you livin’ like. If you ain’t got no money, I’ll give you five grand for the Banks name. That might be one of my alias, Danks Sinatra, Dank!”

But if Ross was hoping to get a response from Banks, he may be disappointed. On Monday, the Queens rapper said he wanted no part in the drama.
“I’ll NEVER join the circus..so don’t expect it from me..peace & love,” he tweeted.

Ross’ comments come after he scored a legal victory against 50 Cent. In 2015, 50 sued Ross over an unauthorized remix of “In Da Club” on Ross’ Renzel Remixes mixtape. He was seeking upwards of $2 million from Rozay for using the beat without his permission. Earlier this month, a judge dismissed the five-year-old case and ruled that 50 didn’t have the right to personally sue since he didn’t own copyright to the song.

Ahead of tonight’s highly-anticipated Verzuz showdown with Brandy, Monica returns with new music.
For the first time in her 25-year career, the R&B icon teams up with the legendary Neptunes on her new single “Trenches” featuring ATL’s own Lil Baby. On the title track from her upcoming album, Monica separates the real from the fake while repping “gang gang.”
“Baby, when the hype get cold / Superficial people in your life get ghost,” she sings, while Baby keeps it 100 on his closing verse. “I’ll go down in history being real / Never square / Never played the victim and I probably never will / I just wish that you was here.”
Taking to Instagram, Monica reflected on her long-awaited collaboration with Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. “For MANY years I’ve dreamed of working with The Neptune’s,” she said. “Admiring their ability to remain current yet timeless as well as their bond & brotherhood because loyalty is fleeting in this business !!”
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Monica’s debut album Miss Thang. She is now readying her 9th studio album Trenches, her first since 2005’s Code Red, which will mark a return to her roots.
“Smiling from the inside out !!!! I can’t wait for y’all to hear my music !!!” said Monica. “It may be more truth than some can handle LOL… The old me definitely payed the booth a visit!!”
Monica and Brandy will celebrate their storied careers during tonight’s Verzuz, streaming live on Apple Music and Instagram starting at 8 p.m. EST.
