Lloyd Banks Makes a Getaway in “Angel Dust” Video
It may be a snow-covered winter wonderland throughout New York right now, but the Big Apple's Lloyd Banks is still in a ghoulish mood off the release of his late-October mixtape Halloween Havoc 2. Over the weekend, Banks dropped a video for "Angel Dust," the second track off the tape which features not a single guest. Produced by AraabMuzik, the track has Banks floating overtop looping keys, delivering punchlines with force.
In the video, which was directed by Eif Rivera, Banks dodges police in a getaway chase and ducks into a brick-walled hideout where skulls, cobwebs and other Halloween imagery transport the cold city into something much more haunting. Banks unwraps lyrics like handfulls of candy in the video, a consistently themed dancer contorting herself in the background.
Halloween Havoc 2 is available for free download over at Banks' official website, and features additional production from The Jerm, Doe Pesci and more. The mixtape represented Banks's first solo endeavor since the G-Unit reunion project The Beast Is G-Unit last March. There's still no word on Banks's Cold Corner 3 mixtape, which the rapper last spoke on in August, saying the project would be for sale and if he wasn't satisfied with the number of pre-orders, he would refrain from releasing it.
In the meantime, enjoy the "Angel Dust" video above as Banks seems keen to further promote Halloween Havoc 2 in the new year. Hopefully further visuals and tracks are in store for the Punch Line King.
