ILuvLola.Net Exclusive Interview with Lloyd Banks [Speaks on HFM2, Personal Life, Songs, 50 Cent + More]



ILL – Your first album HUNGER FOR MORE, debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts with 500,500 copies sold in the first week, and it’s a RIAA certified Platinum album. In 2005 you received a World Music award for the World’s Best Selling New artist. That’s some big accomplishments for a debut album. Do you feel any pressure with this one, 6 years and 2 albums later?

LB – Yeah I definitely feel pressure. There is so much going on, so many big albums coming out, but there is no bigger pressure than the one I’ve created for myself. I know what I’m up against and I’ve been in deep thought. I haven’t really been worried about accolades or things like that. It’s not just album sales anymore – now you have a lot of digital sales, shows, and overall awareness, total impact on everything. Put that all together and that’s what helps you decide a successful album – a big movement.

ILL – Can you speak on any features/production on the album?

LB – Yeah, I’ve got a lot of new production on the album. I got Budha The Future. I got a joint from Nick Speed out of Detroit, which is dope. I got a kid named G’Sparks who did a joint for me. I got a kid named Nascent, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Young Seph, and a kid named Cardiak who did about 3 or 4 joints for me. On the features side, I just got off the phone with Yayo – he’s going to have his verse in today. I got 50 on a record called “P’s and Q’s.” I got a verse back from Raekwon a couple of days ago which is crazy. I’m waiting on a verse from Styles P, Pusha T from The Clipse – I think it’s wrapped up pretty tight as far as lyricists go. I wanted to bring that to the album and mix it with some of the cats that I respect out there and make magic.

Side note: 50 Cent confirmed this morning via Twitter that Eminem and Kanye West will also be on the album!

Banks obviously won't be pulling any amazing numbers like Em did, but he'll still have an amazing album in HFM2. Still surprised Beamer Benz or Bentley only made gold, that s*** should've easily made plat.
