The Hunger For More-Lloyd Banks

With 50 getting major publicity, it's time for G-Unit soldier number two to get his share.

Ain't No Click: Havoc's production is a great opener, nice hook as Yayo joins Banks for this exciting gangsta cut. 3.5/5
Playboy: Ron Browz gives some interesting production and Banks tears it up with a great hook. 4/5
Warrior: Great beat, Banks sounds really good on this. 3.5/5
On Fire: Club production was nicely done, catchy hook, Banks does a good job with this. 5/5
I Get High: Smooth, decent track with Snoop and Fifty. 3/5
I'm So Fly: Timbaland's unique production is fitting as Banks is real smooth with a catchy hook. 4/5
Work Magic: Tougher track here, Banks metaphors are stunning and Buck assists. 3.5/5
If You So Gangsta: Decent production, Banks hook is the best part. 3.5/5
Warrior Pt. 2: Crazy beat by Em, as he, 50 and Nate Dogg upgrade this track with a remix. Great track one of the highlights. 4.5/5
Karma: Avant's soulful hook is nice, Ginx production is nicely done and Banks smoothness shines here. 4/5
When The Chips Are Down: Great sample and solid verse from Game, good track. 3.5/5
Til The End: Reflective track that was good. 3.5/5
Die One Day: Uptempo track that was decent. 3/5
Southside Story: Nice storytelling. 3.5/5

Banks debut is a solid album. Lyrically he has some stunning metaphors and the production was also pretty good. "Playboy" works because of it's different approach, "Warrior" and "Work Magic" are his tougher tracks. "On Fire", "I'm So Fly", "If You So Gangsta" and "Karma are his smoother tracks that work well. All around a good debut and my opinion the best member of G-Unit.

About Lloyd Banks

Lloyd Banks was raised in Jamaica, Queens, by his Puerto Rican mother; his father spent much of his son's childhood behind bars. Like many young men amid the poverty and ruin of his community, he found solace through ghetto poetry and the work of rappers like Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick. He dropped out of high school at the age of 16, finding the structured environment a hindrance to his developing talent for rhyming. After appearing on numerous local mixtapes, Banks, along with childhood friends Tony Yayo and 50 Cent, formed a crew called G-Unit, a group that proceeded to redefine the term "street marketing" with a series of self-released albums that included original numbers and quality artwork. Banks stayed on with 50 Cent, appearing on the artist's now classic 2003 debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin'. November of that same year saw the release of G-Unit's Beg for Mercy. Banks' long-awaited solo debut for G-Unit/Interscope Records, Hunger for More, was released in June 2004. He followed it two years later with Rotten Apple. In 2010, G-Unit announced they were leaving Interscope and partnering with EMI for Banks' third album, H.F.M., Vol. 2 (The Hunger for More, Vol. 2). ~ James Christopher Monger
