50 Cent recently “called out” his fellow G-Unit usurpers Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo in his book Hustle Harder, Hustler Smarter, claiming that their careers hadn’t reached the heights his had, further sharing why he didn’t think the two rappers could obtain similar success. While the self-proclaimed “Lazy Lloyd” might not have taken 50’s words seriously, the last few months have undoubtedly seen a slew of new material from the G-Unit member, with him reaching back into his lyrical pockets to offload a slew of loose freestyles including “Huntin Season” and “Cold Summer.” Today Banks is back with another new track, tapping Griselda’s Beat Butcha and Vado for “Painted Houses.”

On the track, Banks seems to be channeling Martin Scorsese’s latest film The Irishman, aptly interjecting pop culture references and hitman undertones as he raps about painting houses and laying claim to his legacy. “I don’t expect peasants to recognize greatness, you used to riddles/Future zeros/Where I’m from, make it out, you a superhero/You droppin’ sh*t like The Irishman, new and improved De Niro,” he opens on the first verse. He does this over a raw NYC boom bap beat from Beat Butcha — which was initially used for Griselda’s “Fire in the Booth” with Charlie Sloth — allowing for both Banks and Vado to offload their classic street bars that detail everything from smuggling bands to gunning down opps.
