Last week, 50 Cent released his long-awaited 'Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter' book, stocked with insights from the seasoned Hip Hop mogul. In one chapter, Fif speaks on fellow G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo and how he blames himself for their careers not going further than they did. “I always felt that if I had maybe done a better job teaching Banks and Yayo how to evolve and change their habits, they each would be in better places right now.”
Fif continued, expressing how they had so much "unfulfilled potential." "While I was out hustling, Banks was more content staying on his porch and watching the world from there. Banks wanted things to come to him, as opposed to going out and getting them for himself. That’s not me trying to assassinate his character—the guy has ‘Lazy Lloyd’ tattooed on his arm."
The Hip Hop mogul further explains, how he advised Banks to start using social media along with other internet platforms, something he says Banks wouldn't oblige to because 'it wasn’t something Biggie and 2Pac would’ve done.' Fif said.
