That's not real talk - that's fu*king nonsense. Are you aware that this is a thread where people express their opinion about an album? If i don't enjoy it I'm more likely to say something than if I do feel it. I like Banks, but honestly I'll take any of his old G-Unit mix tape verses over any of the verses he's spit on either commercial albums. It would be one thing if he gave up the punchlines and intensity for some more serious subjects, but its all the same sh*t, just less interesting.
banks could really be a top contender if he stopped writing around punchlines and wrote punchlines in his messages. His first mixtape was a classic and better than most albums ever released. The guy WAS the truth. "pr0no Star" wow!! If the guy wrote like that or southside story he would be on top absoulutely and that is why Budden murks him overall.

I ain't go lie tho', Banks is one of the most "grow on to you" Album makers ever. I even hated his voice when i heard Gunit in 1999 or so. It took the year 2003 for him to wake me up when I heard "Money in the Bank" official. I was obsessed. This album at first and still does have some distaste, but it is growing on every session. I love certain lines he spits even tho' even the "great" punchline boy regergitates the "Jazz out the hse" punchline that he used rookie year, but he still has it somewhere. It's funny how overall tho' if you take the good tracks from this and the good tracks from "The Big Withdrawal" you have an actual classic album and it could be a five micer. real talk. The intro for "TBW" was waaaay better than wack a.ss mob deep's. Anyhow it is what it is and it is whatever. banks still one of the top spitters in the mainstream arena. Better than the entire south.

straight up, you know the deal is the best song. I love that song. I dont think its worth the purchase though. Hunger 4 More is way better.
it's worth the purchase, cause he took time to make an effort of doing a good album. maybe not great but not any southside sh*t either and the only song on there with the south on it actually has worthy people. That track is actually listenable and sound good. Banks can stii sh*t on the whole south if he recorded under water. NO ONE out the south can EVER outshine Banks and that is a fact today as it stands.

yeah good points. i know he uses it once an album/mixtape but i love the "kick a bi*ch out the house like she was jazzy jeff line". And ideally he would be better if he wrote songs and added punchlines rather forming songs around the punchlines, but at this point i'd take an album full of top quality punchlines (like his old mixtapes) with hot beats.

I also don't see why any time a NY Rapper whose name isn't Jay-Z or Nas comes out with an album everyone has to say either "the entire south is better than him" or he's hotter than "anyone" from the south. I like Banks a lot, but you can't even pretend that this album is better than either of Lil Waynes last two albums. Just cause the South puts out a ton of sh*t music doesn't mean that NY or the West Coast doesn't do the same.

Disappointed in Banks. First album was fire. I believe i read someone post that they thought this album sounded rushed and/or that no effort was put into it. Couldnt have said it better myself. its unfortunate. I had the opportunity to meet him the other day at my college, UCF. He was promoting RA, and i told him that his first album was fire and that i was patiently waiting on the second. I was hoping that it would be better. All i know is that buck better hold it down for g unit.

on that note, i hear that hes looking into leaving g unit. Either signing with someone or creating his new label or something liek that. can anyone confirm or elaborate on this?

Ok when I first listened to this sh*t I was like what the fu*k is this. I said let me give it one more listen and have came to the conclusion that its crack. I give it a 8.5 or 9 outta 10. fu*k the haters thats my opinion.

Me, myself I felt like Lloyd Banks couldn't done better. Only tracks I thought were hot were the ones on the radio. Beats were terrible. He still had that same mellow tone, like I'm just saying this cause I wrote it down. So hell yell I'm getting the bootleg copy. He doesn't deserve my $16 bucks.

I only didnt like Gilmore's or Playboy2, rest of it is good. I was disappointed with the rakim track, also, Stranger is my sh*t, that track alone ifyou listen to it reflects i think Banks personality, dark, sharp, and slick with his lyrics.

"Ya fu*king Done Son"

The sales are a wrap, on the other hand, I'm still trying to give this some play to see if it grows on me.
