The self-proclaimed Punchline King, G-Unit soldier Lloyd Banks has returned to serve the streets with a brand new collaboration with Shaolin’s favorite chef, Raekwon. The brooding, piano-based production captures Banks at his best: weaving tales of street lore while punctuating them with witty one-liners. Shallah Rae holds down the tracks second verse, sprinkling his one-of-a-kind hood metaphors between the beats haunting keys.
Banks has been relatively quiet since announcing his All Or Nothing: Fear’s No Option project to the masses late last year. At one point, Banks reportedly scrapped all the material for the release, opting to record afresh in order to have optimum impact when the music drops. By the sounds of his collab with Raekwon, the added time has only made the Queens-bred lyricist sharper. Check out the track below and look out for when it drops in the near future.
