Lloyd Banks is back on the mixtape scene with a full two CDs at once — V5 is coming soon.
“V5 — this is my second double-disc this year,” Banks said at his squad’s Forever Young Day in Queens, New York. “This one I been working on. It’s already done. I’ve been doing a few things on the side. I just did the ‘Bandana’ record with Maino and a few other things. I’ve just been working. That’s been put in the cut; I’m hoping to do a couple of videos. I’ve always wanted to do those [with each mixtape project], but I’ll get a call like 6, 7 in the morning saying I gotta go to Africa.
“But V5 on the way — it’s gonna drop any day. Thirty songs. This one is the one, man,” he added. “I been working so hard.”
Banks was pleased to be featured in the recent Hottest MCs fan poll and is looking to see if he’ll make the official list.
“I’m gonna show you why I was even brought up on the MTV list,” Banks promised. “V5 is gonna speak for itself. Thirty records — it’s going down.”
Also, the only feature on the new mixtape is Tony Yayo.
“I kept it to me. They putting the pressure on me. They wanna see what I’mma do next, so I’m gonna knock them over the head and then gear up for my new album,” Banks said.
“After I heard his mixtape, I went back to the drawing board,” Yayo offered. “The stuff I’m hearing from these dudes, we hungry. It’s like we ain’t got no money, no cars, no girls. I just keep doing me. Sometimes Banks give me the energy, 50 give me the energy. Young Buck is gone, Game is gone — they don’t give me no energy. But the Unit, I believe Game said, ‘Yo, we broke up the Beatles.’ The Beatles is still here. This is the original format right here.”
