One thing is apparent after sitting down with G-Unit 1st lieutenant Lloyd Banks: he still has something to prove to himself and to hip hop. BE Magazine caught up with 50 Cent‘s right-hand man as he was on a promotional tour for his latest release, H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger for More 2), in stores November 22, 2010.
Born Christopher Charles Lloyd, Banks was born in Maryland and raised in South Jamaica Queens, New York. His prior work in G-Unit include two group albums, Beg for Mercy in 2003 and T.O.S. (Terminate on Sight) in 2008. Lloyd released his first solo album The Hunger for More in 2004, which featured the top ten hit single “On Fire”. He followed up with less
popular Rotten Apple in 2006. In 2010 G-Unit signed with EMI after leaving Interscope Records in 2009 to distribute H.F.M. 2.
Earlier this year, Banks released his club-friendly single, “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley” featuring Juelz Santana, and followed up with 2nd single, “Any Girl” featuring R&B singer Lloyd. And earlier this month he released 3rd single, “Start It Up” featuring Swizz Beatz, Kanye West, Ryan Leslie & Fabolous.
