Nearly a year after Dipset and The LOX faced off in an iconic Verzuz battle at Madison Square Garden, Jim Jones is interested in entering the ring again.

In an appearance on the Joe Budden Podcast, the Harlem rapper revealed he’s down to face off with one particular G-Unit member this time around.

“I’ll smoke Banks head up right now,” Jones said of Lloyd Banks at the 2:17:20 mark of the episode above. “You beg to differ? My shit is a package. To my drip, to my water, my shit is a package. My shit just ain’t the rap age—it’s the package. When I come out they wanna see Capo. It’s not too many n***as that got that package.”

Jones went on to throw shade at G-Unit, claiming the New York collective hasn’t made a relevant hit in years.

“Where they gonna end up at?” Jones asked. “What year they gonna stop at? Fuck y’all think, this is the nostalgia era? I’m not nostalgic, n***a, I’m still lit—there’s a difference. What year you gon’ stop at? What’s the last record they did that really meant something to somebody that they could still get jiggy with? Not to be disrespectful, we talking hip-hop. That’s what we do, let’s be factual. Y’all here, y’all the hip-hop almanacs. Talk to me.”

Earlier this year, Jim Jones mentioned another New York legend he’d like to go hit-for-hit with in a future battle.

“I would want to have a Verzuz with Jada. Solo,” Jones told HipHopDX. “He has to deal with me on my terms. He better be prepared. When it comes to a top three, I don’t really have a list. I just got real smoke with Jada.”
