Biting bars is a faux pas but it happens to the best of ‘em. Lloyd Banks, unfortunately, is the latest rapper to face accusations of stealing lyrics. Murda Mook appeared on The Danza Project podcast last month where detailed his grievances with established rappers in the music industry, who watch the battles without showing love. “Battle rap, in the beginning, was taboo to mention,” he explained. “N***as used to watch – like, it wasn’t cool to mention it. It used to be those, ‘Oh, them battle rapping ass n***as,’ but n***as used to watch it.”

That’s when he turned his attention to Lloyd Banks, who he believes is a perfect example of this issues “Lloyd Banks is my guy, but he took two of my bars,” he said. “I told him. He know, he know it. But, nevertheless, y’all can find it later. Find the bars later.” He then suggested that Banks likely didn’t think anyone would catch on. “Blue is just nice regardless, though. I’m not saying it’s like that. He probably thought, ‘Nobody gon’ see this battle rap shit, right?'”

Lloyd Banks Responds To Murda Mook

Although Mook wasn’t being entirely serious with his claims, Lloyd Banks clearly wasn’t too fond of his name being brought up in that light. In response to Murda Mook’s podcast appearance, Banks slid into the comment section of @hiphopwolf where he commented with a cap emoji. Even if Banks kept his response brief, we could imagine that he might have a few bars in the chamber in case Mook escalates this situation. However, it should be noted that Banks has praised Mook’s skillset in the past.

Banks’ recent response comes shortly after another famed battle rapper, Cassidy, cleared up allegations of dissing the Course Of The Inevitable rapper. During an interview with Cam Capone, Cassidy explained his “Punchline King” bar from his Bars On I-95 Freestyle. “I been talking that and just because I used that I’m around the Punchline King. It was like, ‘I done battled all around my city banks’ or whatever I said. It’s a play on the city bank, like the bank, but I done really battled all around my city. I  never really seen no battles with Banks. He get busy, he lyrical, he punch and all that but I never seen no battles or heard about him being outside just battling all day like how I was in my city.”
