Now everyone can stop bitching.

Lloyd Banks did not steal this from Papoose.

It's an old song from 50 Cent. It's also mentioned by various other NY rappers including Method Man on Tical O Judgement Day.

Just for those people who think he stole it, it's an old term.

word^^ i can up 50's track "rotten apple" if anyone wants it..

n just for those that dont know, the term rotten apple that banks is usin for the title of his album refers to the big apple in New York. So basically hes sayin that New York is kinda fucked up, or the rap scene in NY is Fucked up :nerd: :D

Fuck you XU. I made this thread because people were saying all kinds of shit like Banks stole it from Pap etc... I'm just clearing shit up like a good forum member does, instead of just bitching at everything, like U do...

sorry for bitching
