No joke. I haven't fu*ked with G-Unit in probably 4 years, but I just heard some Banks the other day -- what happened to dude's voice? Did he get shot in the throat or something? I know voices change, but this is drastic compared to those old Money in the Bank tapes...
Man I've noticed this same ahit. He's trying to force that natural "screetch" that comes in some rappers voices when they hit a high pitch noice, sort of like AZ but s**t sounds stupid as hell because it's not him. That s**t only works with rappers with naturally high pitched voices.
