It seems like we may never have gotten a chance to hear Lloyd Banks new album because Banks has revealed a past temptation to give up his rap career due to personal struggles in the mid-2000′s.

According to Banks, the trials of his father’s 2006 passing and dealing with his mother’s failing health condition made him uninspired to rhyme.

“I was completely ready to say f*ck it,” Banks said in an interview. “50 [Cent's] whole thing was just, ‘Push on, push on.’ But he didn’t grow up with his mother and his father. Seeing my life pass before my eyes, it was like, no matter how much sh*t you have or how good you’re doing, you’re going to go through this and be devastated.” (XXL Mag)

Last month, 50 admitted he pushed Banks to fight through his personal struggles.

“[Lloyd] Banks had a legitimate reason to be upset with me at one point. His pops passed away and his moms was in a car accident, he shut down because he didn’t see the response he was looking for from the Rotten Apple record and I was a little insensitive in those areas because I didn’t know my father and I lost my mother when I was eight. So I don’t see a reason why I should stop pushing. If your pops passes away — depression is a luxury I can’t afford.” (Hot 97)
