[artist id="1245018"]Lloyd Banks[/artist] just dropped his The Hunger for More 2 album on Monday, but the Queens MC says he has no plans to quit releasing free music.
MTV News spoke to G-Unit’s Boy Wonder about the fate of his weekly Blue Fridays series, and he told us he has to keep feeding the streets.
“As far as the Blue Fridays go, I’m gonna keep going up until the last Friday,” Banks said. “So maybe Black Friday, I’ll stop there, but that’s just that phase. I’ll go into a whole new series — I don’t want to name anything yet — I’m definitely going to keep putting out content, it just might not drop on Friday.”
Banks kicked off Blue Fridays in October to help build anticipation for HFM2, the rapper’s first album since signing with G-Unit/EMI .
Hunger for More 2 finds the Punch Line King backed by a heavyweight guest list of beatmakers (Ryan Leslie, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League) and features (Raekwon, Pusha T, Styles P). But while the album is now on sale, Banks is primed to ramp up his freebie deliveries.
“I think I’ve spoiled people to the point that they expect more than just one song,” Banks said. “Maybe I’ll start dropping two songs a day; I’m definitely not gonna go back to the point where I stop supplying the street. I think that was part of the reason for the resistance, is that people know you’re capable of doing it. It’s like showing your trainer you can do 100 push-ups and then try to do 50 tomorrow.”
(No pun intended, of course.)
