Lloyd Banks calls out Rick Ross over Def Jam

Following 50 Cent's departure from Interscope Records, there has been the lasting question of where he could land. Last year, during the height of his feud with Rick Ross, 50 Cent joked about signing with Def Jam. While he was simply joking, it is a strong possibility. Ever since the demise of Murder Inc. (due to 50) and the departure of Jay-Z, the label has struggled.

Recently, Lloyd Banks spoke on his next label situation, saying that Interscope Records wants a second chance. Initially, 50 Cent said that the crew was returning to the independent circuit. But, Banks said that G-Unit Records has been in talks with Def Jam about a new deal. When Banks spoke of the possibility of joining Def Jam, Rick Ross boasted that it would never happen.

With the declining roster on the label, Rick Ross has become the flagship star. Lloyd Banks is confident, however, that if G-Unit was on the label that they would become the focal point. Banks said that Rick Ross could no longer handle his business in Def Jam. Instead, he would have to return to the offices in Florida because they would not allow him to enter. Banks said that when it comes down to it, he is a bigger artist than Rick Ross and Def Jam would shift their focus from his movement to the G-Unit movement.
