Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Lloyd Banks (rap vocals); Eminem, 50 Cent, Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg, Game, Tony Yayo, Young Buck (rap vocals).
Queens, New York-born Lloyd Banks couldn't have asked for a better stage on which to emerge. With 50 Cent's sudden ascension in 2003, his band of longtime mixtape stars, G-Unit, received a dose of national attention on the sturdy BEG FOR MERCY. The three-pronged attack of G-Unit is, as its name would imply, a collective effort, but on that record Banks repeatedly stole the show with his uncompromising, yet poetic rhymes and confident, wry delivery.
Banks makes his hotly anticipated debut with THE HUNGER FOR MORE, an album whose title sums up the tough, yet introspective artist, a ravenous rapper who devours words hungrily. The world is spinning around nonstop in Banks's brain, and there is clearly not enough time for it all to get out. However, in the course of THE HUNGER FOR MORE, he tackles everything from the simple topics of love and sex and life on the streets to problems like bad karma and getting racially profiled at the airport. His paramount ability may be his talent for taking a timeworn topic and transforming it into something fresh, as on "I Get High" (fittingly featuring 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg) and "If You So Gangsta." Banks deftly balances the hardcore, the poetic, and the melodic, and THE HUNGER FOR MORE portends great things for the rapper.
Artist Overview
Aside from 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks is the most successful member of G-Unit to go solo. Banks was a founding member of the Queens rap group along with Tony Yayo and Fiddy himself; he released his first solo album, THE HUNGER FOR MORE, in 2004. Bringing the same controlled-fire flow and street professionalism that marked his appearances on early G-Unit mix tapes, Banks had, by the release of 2006's THE ROTTEN APPLE, risen to be if not the commercial equal to 50 Cent then certainly the G-Unit second-in-command.
Professional Reviews
