Rick Ross isn’t letting up off 50 Cent when it comes to petty jabs on Instagram. After scoring a legal victory over 50 in a lawsuit regarding 50’s 2003 hit “In Da Club,” Rozay has done nothing but get his troll on. Now he’s decided to bring Lloyd Banks into the drama.
On Friday (August 28), Ross took to the ‘gram and played Banks’ “I’m So Fly” off of 2004’s The Hunger For More. While enjoying the groove, he decided to rap along with the track and tagged 50 for emphasis.
“Banks is fresh out the gutter/ Two scoops of butter,” Ross rapped before turning his attention to Banks’ current well-being.
“Banks, you still got some money? Show us what you livin’ like,” he asked. “If you ain’t got no money, I’ll give you five grand for the Banks name. That might be one of my aliases — Dank Sinatra.”
Ross wasn’t done. After another man nearby claimed that he never stopped being a fan of the Punchline King, the “Maybach Music” rapper offered a free suggestion for Banks.
“I came up with a dope title for Lloyd Banks next LP. Or EP,” he said. “Victim Of Circumstance.”
The shots towards Banks’ made some fans recall Banks’ own diss towards Ross when the MMG captain was at odds with the entire G-Unit a decade ago. On “Officer Down,” Banks took offense at Ross’ history of being a correctional officer and portrayal as something he clearly wasn’t.
“He don’t want it/I’ll run up on his shadow hit him proper/He bout real as a 4 dollar bill, Carol City Copper/Chop ’em down, one by one, two by two this what I do/If you knew what I knew then you’ll be cool, you’ll be thru,” Banks rapped on the diss.
Ross and 50’s cold war feud has only simmered in recent months. After showing love to 50’s “Hate It Or Love It” verse, Ross was quick to dismiss his old adversary after 50 revealed that he wanted to use Ross’ “BMF (Blowin’ Money Fast)” for the upcoming Black Mafia Family series airing on STARZ.
“He could go to Wingstop and take a picture of a 10-piece Lemon Pepper (wings) and while you at it, take a picture with a Black bottle (of Bellaire),” Ross told Billboard about 50’s gesture. “And if he do that and post that, I’ma really consider clearing the “BMF” record for the show.”
Ross continued to have his way with 50 from a troll standpoint when he won a lawsuit over whether or not Ross could remix “In Da Club” for his Renzel Remixes mixtape. Ross couldn’t help himself but continue to poke fun at his old nemesis.
Regardless, Ross is digging at old foes the same way 50 used to — and is enjoying himself.
