The Lloyd Banks Gay Porn Rumor


You've probably seen this week's big internet rumor, that G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks has a secret past as a perforner in gay porn flicks. The rumor was accompanied by a flash video of two guys, uhh, doing the things one does in a gay porn flick, and one of the guys does indeed look a lot like Lloyd Banks.

If this rumor and accompanying video were part of a conspiracy to take thousands of insecure, homophobic hip-hoppers and get them to spend all day watching gay men have sex, it has been a smashing success. But is the guy in the video really Lloyd Banks? Apparently not.

Allhiphop and others have noted that Lloyd Banks bears a strong resemblance to a gay adult performer named Ty Lattimore, and suggested it is actually Lattimore on the tape. Well, Mr. Lattimore himself contacted us this morning via email, and here's what he had to say:

There is a huge rumor going around the net that this is Lloyd Banks in this clip. It is not....This clip is of me and a model named Mocha from Bam 2. Folks got it all wrong. I have no idea how this rumor was started. Ty Lattimore

Thanks to Ty for clearing this up once and for all. Here is a link to Bam 2: Thug, evidently the source of the clip. Which one of you will volunteer to watch it and verify this? Anybody? Bueller?
