Banks Planning Split From G-unit?
Rapper Lloyd Banks has sparked reports he will be the next member to leave 50 Cent's G-UNIT amid rising concerns over the record label's bosses.
The label has taken a hit in recent months with the parting of 50 Cent's former protege Young Buck.
And a source tells MediaTakeOut.com that Banks could be "out before the end of the month (Sep08)".
But reports insist the pair's parting will not resemble the bitter war of words that ensued after the departure of his former G-Unit bandmates Young Buck and The Game, who was kicked out of the group in 2005.
The source adds: "It has nothing to do with 50 personally, it's the label. Lloyd loves (50 Cent) like a brother, it's the business people that are messing things up."
In July (08), 50 Cent admitted he risked breaking up his posse by pressuring Banks to promote his last album Rotten Apple after his father had died.
He said at the time: "Lloyd's neck is tattooed with people that was around us that passed, and they died while we was on tour, and we just kept going. So I didn't understand how you would actually stop."
