DMX was actually thinking about Tony Yayo when he threw shade at Lloyd Banks' lyrical ability.
DMX has one of the most unique voices and deliveries in hip-hop history so, when he was asked about a list of the best lyricists of all-time, people took notice of his remarks. During a recent live-stream with Fat Man Scoop, Dark Man X interrupted Scoop and claimed that Lloyd Banks -- who Scoop named as a top lyricist -- does not have the chops to be included in such an elite list.
"So because I didn’t come to the studio to work when HE reached out..I’m not that good?" pondered Banks.
It took a minute for X to issue his official response to the Punchline Kid but finally, he admitted that he was wrong and threw shade at another G-Unit member in the process.

"It takes a real n***a to admit when he's wrong......" wrote the legendary rapper over a screencap of Lloyd Banks' tweets. "My apologies to loyd banks I was thinking tony yayo when I was asked about banks. I fuck with banks!"
Damn, what did Yayo do to deserve this? Poor guy.
