Lloyd Banks is a f*cking bear.
Young, disrespectful, vibrant and immune to any rules the establishment set forth before them, one could make the argument the early 2000's G-Unit and 1992's Bébé's Kids were one in the same.
Cold Corner 2 was cut meaning the next release Lloyd Banks puts his name on will be the follow up to last year's The Hunger For More 2.
I've never noticed Vevo's "Go Shows" concept series previously but this seems pretty dope as they capture Fab performing "Y'all Don't Hear Me Tho" on the Brooklyn Bridge.

If you take one part Don Cornelius, two parts midnight oil, a little dry sarcasm and a whole lot of Brooklyn, you'll find yourself circling the block where Fabolous just bought property to set up shop for The Soul Tape.
Emilio sat down with Lloyd Banks recently to talk about everything from the business to threesomes -wait.
"Two G’s on my new sleeves Big percent of the new breed Smell like money and blue cheese Stealth bomb on my true steez Feel the Malibu breeze Bad bitches and cool Keys Way to cool to be boo'ed up, Louie'd down to the shoestrings One of the very few kings, the Smith & Wesson brothers, no telling what attitudes bring 30k on my mood ring Dirty play how we do things Burn your way with the blue flame True train on your boo lane.
Yeah, this is more like it. The other day I voiced my sentiments towards Young Jeezy's current state.
First things first, much respect to Lloyd Banks for continuing to push Hunger For More 2 even with what I am sure are disappointing sales.
Queens in this bitch/Clean in the 6/New York City, I don't like no team but the Knicks... The numbers may not reflect so, but Lloyd Banks capped off his return to relevancy with last year's Hunger For More 2. Time moves fast however. New music is needed to satisfy the public's thirst, therefore new music is always being recorded. Take this collaboration with Jim Jones, "Fly In The Wind." Don't expect to find this on Lloyd's next project or Capo's upcoming album. It's a freebie. Nothing more, nothing less. Here's to the PLK pushing "I Don't Deserve You" as his next single though.
It’s common knowledge that years of relentless performing led Eminem to his multiple drug dependencies and four year hiatus from Hip-Hop, and since then he’s been notoriously known to very, very rarely grace the live stage.
If you can't beat 'em, you might as well join 'em and that's how Reek Da Villian is presenting you with his new effort.
With 50 Cent becoming more and more enamored with movie trailers than vocal booths, the time has finally come for Lloyd Banks to step to the forefront. With the release of his third album, H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger For More 2), there’s an obvious focus on the commercial side of things now that the Southside Queens native is waving the G-Unit flag by his lonesome. When 50 was reigning terror on the airwaves, Banks was able to keep the core G-Unit fan base appeased with street bangers like “On Fire,” “Cake,” and “I’m So Fly” where getting money and stuntin’ were the main objectives. Now the attention is applied in varying degrees towards the fairer sex. The Boy Wonder successfully caters to both both sets on the boisterous “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley,” the lead single that proved its staying power throughout the summer.
See, Kanye WOULD have had the best week ever. He linked up with Tip and Big Brother and showed the poise it takes to get rated Major on The Smoking Section--all before Turkey Day 2010.
In the military, when the top-ranking official of the operation is rendered incapable of doing their job, the next in line steps up and fills the slot without so much of a eye blink.
