Llyod and Def Jam VP No I.D speak out on Irv Gottis Bid for Def Jam Presidency
Power 105.1′s Breakfast Club put Lloyd on the hotseat regarding some very adamant slandering he received from old boss Irv Gotti. Recently, Gotti, who felt betrayed by his former Inc artst, went on record saying “Lloyd I have no love for. He can walk right past me, get hit by a car and I’d say ‘Oh word? Let me get something to eat.’ He couldn’t wait to suck these dudes off.”
Although visibly bothered by the statements, Lloyd kept a mature, though candid demeanor speaking on his own faults as well as Irv’s, who didn’t lend a helping hand when Lloyd, a New Orleans native, reached out for help during the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina. The 24-year-old also touched on the fact that Ashanti was disloyal, but didn’t catch half his slack because of her romantic relationship with Gotti.
“I know here he’s coming from. Everybody got an opinion about it. I’m just there to do my job, to be honest,” No I.D. said in an interview. “He’s just strongly stating his opinion, and there are some facts in it and there are other parts to this business that have to do with how things be the way they are…I can’t say [if he's the man for the job]. That’s what I mean by I won’t get into whether he can or can’t because who’s to say who can and can’t? It would be cool to have somebody in that position, but me, I’ma just stay in my position and do the best that I can do for music in general.”
