Lloyd Banks' new album The Course of the Inevitable 2 is here. It arrived today, July 15.

On Thursday, his interview on The Joe Budden Podcast aired, where he talked about his songwriting ability and learning from 50 Cent.

The thing is, there's been reported tension between Banks and 50, which could've started after Fif accused him of being lazy. So, Banks' recent comments could be a sign that they're cool with each other again.

"Coming into mixtapes, starting from Master C, the [DJ] Clues, DJ Absoluts, and this was even before ‘Bad News’ dropped and things like that, watching 50, to be perfectly honest with you [is how I learned songwriting],” he said. “He wasn’t just a writer, he was an exceptional songwriter. Just conceptually and sticking to the whole subject matter, which was a plus for me because you’re looking around the game, there wasn’t many like that."

"Some of the biggest artists weren’t the best songwriters, he was," Banks continued. "From the introduction, what you say in the beginning, where to pause. So that’s how I write .... The outros, the bridges, all of these things I learned from watching him record. And they were cheat codes because if I had the illest 16, he would steal the show. I didn’t have that yet.”

Maybe Banks and Fif will hop on a record again in the near future. We'll have to see.
