Ever since he mentioned that Lloyd Bnaks should be in the Top 5 category of rappers, the two have been knocking out a few tracks. First it was the G.O.O.D. Friday track “Christian Dior Denim Flow”, and just the other night Lloyd Banks released his latest single which also featured Mr. West, “Start It Up”. In a phone interview with MTV, Lloyd explains how the later track came about.
“The whole Kanye thing happened, it was shortly after the tweet that he wrote, the comment he made about me being underrated and should be in everybody’s top five,” Banks told MTV News over the phone Thursday. “We read that statement, and it kind of took off on its own. I definitely appreciated that. Just for him to say that opens up the eyes that have been watching him [to me]. And from there, it made sense to go into the studio with him. Shortly after that, we went into the studio.”
