Lloyd Banks 20 Songs Into His Next Album

'I completed my situation with EMI and going right back to the drawing board,' G-Unit MC tells 'RapFix Live.'

[artist id="1245018"]Lloyd Banks[/artist] still hungers for more. Last year, the G-Unit rapper dropped his third album, The Hunger For More 2, and during Wednesday’s “RapFix Live” one-year anniversary show , Banks revealed to host Sway that he is well into the recording process for his next album.

Whether it will come out on EMI, where he released his last LP, is uncertain.

“I’m in between situations now. I completed my situation with EMI and going right back to the drawing board,” LB said. “I’ve been working constantly to just make music for my mixtape series and, at the same time, for my next album. I’m about 18 to 20 records into my next album already.”

Actually, Banks was just being modest. While he is getting ready to release his Cold Corner 2 mixtape in the coming weeks, he told Sway that he has quite a few tapes already completed.

“I got a couple of mixtapes done. Actually, I had the Cold Corner done for a second, but I just put it off because I could,” he said nonchalantly. “I needed more time to work on everything else. I didn’t want to keep on givin’ ‘em a date, givin’ ‘em a date and pushin’ it back like it’s an album.”

Banks is quite confident about the tape: “It’s a mixtape at the end of the day, but it will be the best mixtape that comes out, hands down, this year.”

With all the tracks he has already recorded, fans can surely expect a handful of collaborations. Banks didn’t reveal any upcoming features, but when a fan tweeted a question, asking if the Queens, New York, spitter would partner up with onetime G-Unit foe Nas, Banks couldn’t say for sure but didn’t rule it out. “I don’t know,” he said. “I’d be down for it, though. Nas is a legend.”

Mentally been many places, but I'm Brooklyn's own. Hip-hop gives me life!
