DMX Apologizes to Lloyd Banks mistaking him for Tony Yayo

DMX apology after discrediting Lloyd Banks in such a public fashion.

X: "I was thinking Tony Yayo when I was asked about banks."

This past weekend Dmx spoke to Fatman Scoopin an IG Live conversation in which, of all things, the subject of how good of a lyricist Lloyd Banks is was brought up. 

He asked Scoop to give him some examples of who he considered to be great “lyrically.” After naming Chuck D, Eminem, Rakim, Nas, Black Thought, Big Daddy Kane, Nas, LL Cool J, Slick Rick and The Notorious B.I.G., Scoop threw in “Lloyd Banks.”

X replied, “Lloyd Banks?” Lloyd Banks? Lloyd Banks? “Seriously?!”

He then asked Scoop to “impress me with four bars,” which never happened even though X insisted it “shouldn’t be hard” if Banks was such a supreme wordsmith like Scoop said.
