Speculation has been building in recent days that legendary New York Rapper Lloyd Banks of G-Unit may potentially make his long-awaited and eagerly anticipated battle rap debut on SMACK/URLTV at an upcoming battle event. Lloyd Banks was recently on IG Live chatting with both K-Shine and DNA of NWX and remarked that he wants to battle Atlanta veteran John John Da Don of Bullpen Battle League.
John John Da Don has since claimed that he is keen for the battle and believes he would beat Lloyd Banks convincingly in what would certainly be a tough test upon Banks’ debut in the modern form of battle rap. With SMACK/URLTV recently forging a very lucrative partnership with innovative live-streaming platform Caffeine via Drake, the timing may be able to finally facilitate such a legendary industry rapper entering today’s battle rap arena. Recent commercially successful mainstream artists who have ventured into the modern era of battle rap include Cassidy, Joe Budden, King Los, Jae Millz, 40 Cal (Dipset), Madchild of Swollen Members, Craig G, Canibus amongst others – will Lloyd Banks be next? Stay tuned.
