In a pair of shocking tweets a few hours ago, Lloyd Banks has hinted that he’s done with Hip-Hop and wants to retire. He took to the social media platform and expressed how much Hip-Hop meant to him.

“I fell in love with Hip Hop over 25 years ago..it was that thing I turned to during good times and bad..just wanna say thank you to the artist B4 me that inspired me,” wrote the G-Unit rapper. “With that being said..I think it’s time to lay it down,” he continued, announcing that he’s ready to hang up the mic.

This is very sad for fans who grew up in the G-Unit era listening to the Punchline King (PLK). Over the last few years, the prolific emcee has put out several mixtapes but struggled to find a hit song. His last studio H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger for More 2) was released in 2010 and featured the smash hit ‘Beamer, Benz or Bentley’ with Juelz Santana. We are hoping for a miracle that he actually meant getting back in the booth when he mentioned “lay it down.”

The rapper, born Christopher Charles Lloyd, grew in popularity rapping on early G-Unit mixtapes alongside 50 Cent and Tony Yayo. His debut album Hunger for More was released in 2004 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. His last drop was the ‘Sugar Hill’ freestyle back in January.
