Before the fortune and the fame, Lloyd Banks was one of the most-popular mixtape rappers in New York City. But, when he was signed to Interscope Records, Lloyd Banks briefly traded his mixtape fame in for platinum plaques. When G-Unit began to slip from popularity, Lloyd Banks returned to the mixtape scene, regaining his title of “punchline king.”
Lloyd Banks has been primarily a mixtape rapper, since the release of his 2006 sophomore album, Rotten Apple. Since the release of his third album, H.F.M. 2, Lloyd Banks has been on his mixtape grind. Banks released his most-recent mixtape, The Cold Corner 2, back in November and only months later his V6 mixtape was announced. So far, Banks has released one song, “Open Arms,” from the mixtape.
A few weeks ago, Lloyd Banks announced V6 would be released on April 30. Earlier today, however, Lloyd Banks revealed the project has been delayed, via Twitter. Lloyd Banks said he decided to delay the project in order to make sure everything was perfect. Saying he had a little more work to do on the project, Banks went on to say the release date is still around the corner.
