In Midtown Manhattan HipHopwired caught up with Lloyd Banks, where explained his break from the music industry, lessons learned and The Hunger For More 2.
The Queens native cites personal losses as to why he took a break but asserts that he is positioned for a comeback.
If his Gold Certified single, “Beamer, Benz, Or Bentley,” is any indicator of what to expect from his forthcoming album — a subpar return to music isn’t a concern.
Banks also weighs on fellow Queens emcee Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and the decline of Hip-Hop in New York.
“There was a time when New York City was on top, there was a time when the West coast dominated and then the down south movement. Everybody gets their shot but when it comes around to what you do, you should be there on frontline to represent that lane of Hip-Hop.”
