Alongside his former group-mates, Young Buck and The Game, he helped to take the game over for at least one summer. Due to his affiliation with 50 Cent, Banks quickly became a household name. His debut single, “On Fire,” dominated the summer of 2004 and his career seemed to be taking off rather fast.br /br /When speaking of his post-debut album career, the phrase “all good things must come to an end” comes up. In no fault of his own, the feud between 50 Cent and The Game led to the untimely demise of G-Unit Records. Because the people were growing tired of 50 Cent and his constant bullying, they denied the first G-Unit artist to come out. Sadly enough, that first artist ended up being Lloyd Banks.br /br /Instead of quickly reviving itself when 50 Cent released his album, G-Unit continued its downward spiral. Because they were no longer selling records, Interscope Records pulled the plug on Lloyd Banks’ album. That led to Banks leaving Interscope and soon being followed by the rest of G-Unit Records. Two albums deep in the game, with a third on the way, Banks now considers himself a veteran in the game.br /br /Speaking on the state of hip hop, Lloyd Banks said that he feels that Ja Rule and Fat Joe might as well hang it up. Meanwhile, such newer acts as J. Cole and Drake are the future of mainstream hip hop. While he credits those rappers as the future, Banks predicted a West Coast comeback coming at the hands of Nipsey Hussle, Jay Rock, and Glasses Malone. He predicted 2010 to be a great year in hip hop as the summer comes.br /br /The summer, next month in particular, is when Lloyd Banks plans to release his long-awaited third studio album, The Hunger For More 2.div class=”blogger-post-footer”div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”
