In 2009, Lloyd revealed he left Murder Inc. Records, something denied by Irv Gotti, the head of the struggling label. After the release of Ja Rule's R.U.L.E., Lloyd found himself basically carrying the label. His 2008 album, Lessons in Love, was a flop, but the highest-selling Murder Inc. album of 2008.

Following a bitter dispute with Irv Gotti, Lloyd resurfaced and signed with Zone 4/Interscope Records with Polow da Don. Due to the change in labels, Lloyd found himself working with more high-profile artists. For years, Lloyd was restricted because of the feuds his label were involved in.

But, with his new label, he was free to work with any artist he felt like. Immediately, Lloyd began working with artists from G-Unit, the primary rivals of Murder Inc. While Lloyd has no issues with former Murder Inc. frontman, Ja Rule, Rule did call him out over "working with the enemy." Still, the two have worked together in the time since.

Lloyd's fourth album, King of Hearts, has been held up for nearly a year, but is slated for a July 5 release date. The lineup for the new release is filled with stars. Lloyd has called upon Game, Lil Wayne (who has been featured on all of Lloyd's albums), Andre 3000, Chris Brown, Young Jeezy, Trey Songz, and many more artists.
