Lloyd Banks Still Hungry For More
The rapper talks his new album...
He told Power 106 KMEL: "Me personally, I just want to be respected, I want to be on the wall. On the wall, before I'm dead. ‘The Hunger For More Part 2,’ ‘HFM Part 2’ man, it's been about three years since my last album. My first album came out June 29th 2004, I remember it like yesterday.
"Part of the reason I decided to go with the title, HFM Part 2 was because everything happened to me, the Beamer, Benz Or Bentley record came and it was like, I felt the energy I hadn't felt since the beginning and at the same time I had the bulk of the album done because I was in a mixtape vein and I just wanted to get the 'feel good' records out, the club joints, the car joints, and then just push from there.
“I just had so many similarities from there, from writing, recording on the road, like, I wrote Warrior and Fire in London and then I wrote a few songs in Amsterdam, some in my neighbourhood, so just with me moving around like that, I was like, 'You know what? I'm just gonna go back to that because it feels like a new beginning.' Crazy."
