Reseña de álbum

After a promising debut, G-Unit soldier Lloyd Banks hedged his bets, subdued the hungry, punch line-filled style that defined him, and delivered a so-so effort that coasts on the G-Unit formula. With an EP's worth of heat — the infectious single "Hands Up" with 50 Cent being the hottest — Rotten Apple is no disaster, and there's no doubt the G-Unit faithful will get twice as much out of this than everyone else, especially with the G-Unit universe guest list and the numerous raw, freestyle-flavored productions that sound like they fell off a G-Unit Radio mixtape. The long, word-filled flows are here, as are the humorous stingers Banks likes to drop, but his delivery is surprisingly weary, and often on the more street tracks, the production is drab, making it easy to drift away from the words no matter how sharp. Luckily, G-Unit's bag of hooks just keeps on giving, and when Rotten Apple goes for polish, it succeeds. Besides "Hands Up," there's the cool "Help" — a "one for the ladies" track with Keri Hilson — and "You Know the Deal" with Rakim, which sounds exactly how Mobb Deep's G-Unit debut should have. Rocking it with a trio of Southern ballers — Young Buck, Scarface, and 8Ball — Banks offers the excellent "Iceman" before closing with "Gilmore's," one of those loose, casual, and satisfying numbers G-Unit members always seem to drop at or toward the end of their albums. "Iceman" and "Gilmore's" suggest Banks is the last soldier who should fall into the "I own this/I own that" or "I moved this many units/You didn't move nearly as many" ruts G-Unit is famous for, but he does, too often to ignore. The highlights are way high, but the album as a whole is "fans-only."

Lloyd Banks - Rotten Apple (Review)

1. Rotten Apple ft. 50 Cent & Prodigy This track is HOTT!! The beat production is top notch, one of the best on the album. I personally think this should of been released as the street single instead of Cake. Banks lines are just amazing. Key line from Banks right off the top is "Rap gonna get that boy found in the river, dead by a trigger by thinkin' he's schwarzenegger". and 50 with the line "I'm New York cities Pharaoh, I'll have you staring down the barrow". Prodigy does okay too. I'll probably have this one on repeat for awhile. 5/5 Stars. 2. Survival This track is decent. He talks about how rich & gangsta he is though. On the chorus he talks about growing up in Southside Jamica, Queens. To be honest the chorus is the deepest part of the song. 4/5 Stars. 3. Playboy Pt. 2 This could of been a really hott track, but the beat is too congested. Just feels like a million things are going on here. He only drops 2 verses on this track though. 4/5 Stars. 4. The Cake ft. 50 Cent 50 really paints a picture for the listener with his verse & has some great lines like: “I'm the poster child for violence, I'm the boy in the poster. When them shots start to ring out I'm the boy with the toaster.” Only problem is the chorus seems to blend into the verses. 5/5 Stars though. 5. Make A Move Great chorus straight off the bat. The beat is crazy, kind of on the verge of hip-hop/rock. Keyline: "And that girl ain't your girl know the difference boy, she kills more guys then a liquor store." 5/5 Stars. 6. Hands Up ft. 50 Cent The 3rd & final track featuring the G-unit general. Eminem did great production on this track, great club banger. However I'm pretty sure this is the 3rd time I've heard Banks refer to having 22's on his cars. Even so it's a great track . 5/5 Stars. 7. Help ft. Keri Washington The ladies are going to love this track. You can tell from the track that the video is going to be great, it really tells a story. Keri Washington was perfect for this track's chorus too. 5/5 Stars. 8. Addicted ft. Musiq Souldchild The beat is fantastic. Not really feeling Musiq though. This doesn't come off as to much of a rap track, more like a R-n-B colabo, although it's def. not a track for the ladies. Banks is painting picture's of life's struggles. Key line: "Now that my foot's in the door there's no stoppin' me, pure poetry, I got a lil' Pac in me." Not really my kind of track, but I don't feel the urge to skip it either. 4/5 Stars. 9. You Know The Deal ft. Rakim Simply amazing. This is probably the best track on the album IMO. Rakim is just sample on the chorus, but trust me Banks DOESN'T need a verse from Rakim. Banks handles this like a madd man! Banks show's all of his skills off in this track, storytelling, gangsta talk, punchlines! You're gonna be rewinding this track alot and be like, "WHOA what did he just say?" Here's a line that really stood out to me: "I got red, blue, & white don't even ask about ice. I look like a cop car flashin' his lights." I gotta break the rules on this one, 10/5 Stars & then some! 10. Get Clapped ft. Prodigy Hittin' hard on on this. The beat paints dark pictures of the hood all by itself. Banks just makes you say dang. On Banks last verse he gives praise to God too which I dig. Except for Mobb Deep, G-unit always seems to make sure they give thanks or ref. to God on all their albums. 5/5 Stars. 11. Stranger The chorus however is just plain annoying. Good lyric's though. Key line: "I'm frontin' in my G62's, the yellow & royal blues, i'm better then all you dudes, hot metal for all you fools, the lil' guys admire me they study all my moves, & i'm focused cause i'm a end up bloody if i snooze." The song is only 2 verses though, feels to short. 4/5 Stars. 12. Change The beat is very hott. Again he going with that crazy word play. If you've heard Obie Trice's 2nd Rounds On Me you're gonna be familiar with the double time flow thing he's doing here. Even though this song's only 2 verses, believe it or not it feels complete. 5/5 stars. 13. Ny Ny ft. Tony Yayo The beat & chorus get annoying quickly. Verses are okay though. Good Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ref. from Banks when he says, "I'll throw a chick out the crib like Jazzy Jeff". Yayo has a great line on here where he says, "I'm from New York, New York, we die for the cheese, I'll air your house out like a can of Febreze". However Yayo only spits like 8 bars. So I'm gonna give this 3/5 Stars. 14. One Night Stand ft. Keon Bryce The beat production is smooth again, but this is a ladies track. I'm quite sure I'll be skipping this track. 2/5 Stars. 15. Iceman ft. Young Buck, Scarface, & 8-Ball This is another club banger. Beat production is great & the chorus is very catchy. The track is top-notch until you get to the last guy on this track. Track is still crazy, it'll get stuck in your head. 5/5 Stars. 16. Gilmore's Could of easily been one of the best tracks on the album, but Banks only drop's 2 verses on it. 5/5 Stars. 17. Life ft. Spider Loc Hidden track #1. Another dark spirited beat. Good chorus. & again the way he connects his words. just something special about it. Spider Loc doin' his gangsta talk. Gotta say Spider has really grown as a artist, he spits rap-poetry if that makes any sense. All rap is poetry, but Spider actually sounds like a poet when he's doing his verse. It's tight. 5/5 Stars. 18. Lost & Found Hidden track #2. Real gangsta track, great beat. Good move to hide this as a extra, makes it all the more sweeter of a ending to a hott cd. 5/5 Stars. Final Thoughts: You gotta listen to it fully in order to appreciate it though. If you don't care about lyrics then you won't understand the greatness of this album. I can only name 2 other artists that can play with words like this, and thats Eminem & Fabolous. This is more of a gangsta album then The Hunger 4 More. He takes you to the hood instead of the club. It's def. one of the best lyrical cd's in '06. Buy this album!!

Rotten Apple

LLoyd Banks comes back with his sophmore album Rotten Apple, after beef with The Game and a whole G-Unot campaign Banks still shows that he is definently not a toy soldier or just another product rapper under 50 Cent Banks shows that he can stand alone with Guest Appearances of 50 Cent Rakim Mobb Deep and others LLoyd Banks Rotten Apple can definently be seperated from Hunger For More with not as much promotion as Hunger For More as I write this review i looked at the comments left about the album and you see that people cant think for themselves they wanna slam a album that i bet they just previewed from itunes and formed an opinion from 30 seconds of music just so you all remember what rapper has not spoke about ice cars money girls fame and killing the competition so if you wanna call the album whack or boring because of those things then i would advise you listen to a whole genre of music G-Unit is not Mos Def not Talib Kweli Kanye West and so many other philisophical rappers Rotten Apple deserves a chance LLoyd Banks deserves a chance because LLoyd Banks is an artist Cake Hands Up NY NY Playboy 2 and so many others show potential why this cd comes off being a great album people need to move on from what used to be with the whole G-Unit G-Unot campaign and actually give good reviews and not form an opinion based on what we think the majority thinks guaranteed we have a 50 cent album a Tony Yayo album(maybe) Young Buck and Lloyd Banks album in are room car and in our head playing LLoyd Banks is considered one of the lyrical rappers on the team and he will continue to keep bringing his best regardless of what we say we are viewers and give opinions so unless you do music write or anything please keep your opinions to yourself because chances are until you listen to this album do just like The Roots say and Don't Say Nuthin, this album was waiting to be slammed by some of you and thats the reason why we can see that the album has the rating it has cause people listened and finally gave an opinion Young Buck album is coming and Rotten Apple is here i just realized that this was more than a just a review but something to voice my opinion as well Rotten Apple deserves a four three for the way the album was produced even though I did not see much promotion and the last star for making the sophmore album and not even really speaking about The Game and a whole G-Unot campaign and staying focused on his work his career and making it to what we considered the top

BANKS DOES IT AGAIN!!!!! BWS HATERS GONNA BE HATIN OUTTA JEALOUSY

The Mixtape award winner is back with anutha hot album, G-UNIT members just keep droppin heat from the northeast, and killin BWS. Had my hopes up for the album and of course, Banks exceeds my expectations with his viciously sick flow and hard-hittin beats that you just cant deny. Obvious hits are Hands Up and Cake but I'm surprised "My House" isnt on here but dont matter since you can buy the single. My personal favorite besides Hands Up and Cake is Playboy 2 as u may have heard the original playboy track on his "The Hunger for More" CD. But to end it the whole album is tight, no fillers just Banks's killa lyricism and his blazin' beats. I'm sorry you BWS haters gotta problem? I only got one thing 2 say GGG GGG G-UNIT all day every day!!!
