In less than 24 hours, Lloyd Banks is going to spill the beans. The Southside, Queens, native is the next guest on “Rap Fix Live” , and he’ll reveal to our own Sway what company he and 50 Cent have decided will distribute his next album, The Hunger For More 2. The live stream airs Friday at 1 p.m. ET on MTV.com.
A couple of weeks back, we spoke to Banks on the New Jersey set of his video for “Any Girl” , where he said he was in no rush to sign a contract.
“I’m patient. I know the right situation is definitely gonna [present] itself,” he explained. ‘When that happens, it’s gonna be on and running. 50 is 100 percent behind me, behind my project. Whatever I say I wanna do, he’s gonna push that button. That’s all you need is somebody to be in your corner like that.”
“Any Girl” is the next single from Banks’ HFM2, and the video has been selected for a turn as MTV Jams’ highly coveted Jam of the Week; it enters the rotation on Sunday.
“I’m running through my day-to-day going to see a few of my girls,” Banks explained of the concept when we visited the video set. I got a white girl, I got [a] Spanish girl, a black girl, and I’m going to basically lie to them and tell them how much I love them and how much I want to see them,” he said.
“He flew into New York [and] knocked out the record in like 15, 20 minutes,” Banks said about the song’s guest star, R&B singer Lloyd. “His work ethic is incredible. He was actually independent at the time so … it was no restraints. It was like, ‘Let’s go!’ ”
