Lloyd Banks – H.F.M. 2 (Hunger For More 2) (Review & Overview)

As much as I’m a fan of Nicki Minaj and as talented as Kanye West is, my favorite album out of the 3 releases is Hunger For More 2 from the boy Lloyd Banks. All 3 are very much Hip Hop albums but Hip Hop has been on the soft side as of late and Banks just came through and delivered that gritty rap album that was missing from all the releases.

As I’m writing this I’m on my 10th listen of the album, when listening it’s almost nostalgic to that old G-Unit sound we all loved back in 2003. After the less than spectacular performance of his sophomore album Rotten Apple, the G-Unit soldier disappeared from mainstream but since then had been consistently releasing new  music on the web and slowly but surely rebuilt his brand.

His dedicated fans stuck with him and he gained news ones through the popular site ThisIs50.com and with release of numerous mixtapes. The hard work eventually paid off when his debut single “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” took off. Banks didn’t waste anytime and decided to strike while the iron was hot with the release of “Any Girl” followed by another monster record “Start It Up.” The 3 singles created new excitement for the Emcee and set him up perfectly for the sequel to his debut classic.

Hunger For More 2 plays through fully with no fillers, there is quite a few features but it wasn’t overkill to a point where it sounds like a posse album. It’s a straight up rap album, hard bars over hard beats. Apart from the radio singles some of the more notable records include “Celebrity,” “Unexplainable,” “Sooner Than Later,” and “Payback (P’s and Q’s)” featuring 50 Cent which is reminiscent of that classic G-Unit sound.

Out of all the November 22, 2010 releases, this is my favorite one. This one goes hard in the whip folks…

Congrats to Banks, this is a great album for a comeback.

I give it 4.3/5, leave your review and ratings below.

hunger for more 2 is a great comeback for the PLK. Banks kills every beat with his slick flow, although he goes easy on the punchlines his flow is tight. This album is a great sequal the the first H.F.M. South Africa is feeling this album, it gets alot of radio play. i give this one a 5 star rating - well done to Banks
