Born in 1982, Christopher Charles Lloyd (Lloyd Banks) is a rapper from Queens, New York. In the late 1990s, Banks rose to fame with his modern hip-hop style. The rapper joined with childhood friends 50 cent and Tony Tayo and together they embarked on successful hip-hop careers. Artist that resemble Bank’s style include Young Buck, Jadakiss, Fabolous, and 50 Cent. Associated acts include, but are not limited to, Eminem and G-unit.
Lloyd came from a rough up-bringing and struggled through his youth. After dropping out of school at the age of 16, Lloyd teamed up with his friends and began their rap career. He, 50 Cent, Tony Tayo, and Young Buck started rapping in the New York area. Soon, 50 Cent inked a deal with Dr. Dre and began work on his new album. Two songs on the album featured Lloyd Banks; yet, he received little attention. While his friend promoted his new record, Banks began making mix-tapes in the local area, which began his underground following. After gaining success the group established G-Unit records. In 2003, they released their first album together, which sold over 2 million copies. Beg for Mercy became a huge success and launched the team into rap stardom.
In 2004, Banks released his album, The Hunger for More. The record became a tremendous success and caused a feud with him and former members of G-Unit. It featured several hit singles, including his popular song, “I’m So Fly.” Several songs from the album reached high on billboard charts. He followed the release by touring and returning to the studio to begin work on his next project.
Rotten Apple dropped in 2006 and received mixed reviews. It reached the top five on billboard charts but didn’t match the success of his previous record. He followed by touring and afterwards got dropped from his label, Interscope Records. Banks stayed with G-Unit and produced a single in 2009 with rap artist Rick Ross. One year later, Banks began collaborating with many popular musicians including Kanye West, Fabolous, and Jeremih. During 2010, Interscope tried to get him back; however he already signed with EMI. Soon after, he released his third album, Hunger for More 2. Banks is currently on break and does not have any shows available at this time.
