    Was just listening to old g unit and I’m convinced banks wrote most of 50s shyt back then.

    listen to 50 when he was around banks and when he wasn’t it’s pretty obvious. I always wondered why 50 couldn’t make good music after g unit and this makes sense why.

    Swear I remember banks freestyling and using in the club hook in his verse on some mixtape.

    I doubt it their styles are completely different. Think 50 lost his passion for rap and is too busy doing other shyt.

    I could be wrong but I don’t remember hearing Banks freestyle the in da club hook. I remember 50 doing it right after Banks freestyle

    Also I wouldn’t let 50 call me lazy if I was responsible for the majority of his hits . :dead:

    They complement each other well, better together but I’m not sure how much of a collaborative effort it was behind the scenes










    :wow:

    50 meant he’s lazy like come write my shyt :lolbron:. I see what you are saying but you think 50 couldn’t make the same music because he was busy? I dubo I can’t remember any good 50 music any time after g unit.

    :mjlol:

    Its weird but I guess its not impossible for whatever reason, even prodigy had a gradual decline lyrically.

    That nikka was up a 100 mill before his 3rd album dropped. I wouldn't even step out the house with that kinda of money officially retired :dead:


    I get what you're saying tho. At one point I thought JMJ wrote power of the dollar.

    It seems 50 was writing for JMJ and wrote for puffy as well






    I still love his music old and new:ehh:

    He might’ve helped with some hooks and bars, Banks’ pen game was the best in the group.

    You thought Jay was writing for 50? :dahell:

    You realize he was a DJ and Producer right, not a rapper.

    Lol yea I know but 50 said JMJ taught him how to count bars, write hooks, and structure songs

    My mind started to wonder like op because there’s definitely a considerable drop off in his wordplay

    :manny:

    But I heard those tracks from 97-98 and someone in the YT comments said 50 was ghostwriting for JMJs album that never came out
