Lloyd Banks
Rotten Apple

LloydBanks.jpgEven after his celebrated mixtape grind and platinum debut, The Hunger for More, Lloyd Banks is still an underdog. With Tony Yayo’s and Mobb Deep’s G-Unit debuts both failing to reach the million-sold mark, the Queens, N.Y., native is left to reestablish his crew’s dominance on the charts outside of figurehead 50 Cent. Couple that pressure with New York’s yearning for an East Coast resurgence, and Banks’ sophomore release, Rotten Apple, is shaping up to be mission impossible.

Picking up right where his ’04 smash “On Fire” left off, Banks serves up the 50-assisted “Hands Up” as his jump-off cut. Backed by a kinetic kick-snare combo and swirling synths, he boasts, “It feels so good to live sucker free/I’m soaking it all up while ya girl suckin’ me.” Following a few more nods to the ladies (e.g. “One Night Stand” and “Help”), the Boy Wonder shifts to brutal thoughts of homicide with the Needlz-produced “Get Clapped” featuring Mobb Deep. After baring his soul on the guitar-drenched “Survival,” Banks goes in for the kill on the Yayo collabo “NY, NY.” Over Eminem’s knockin’ drums and crisp snares, the G-Unit soldier proclaims, “I’ll show you I’m crack/That snowy-white powder on the track.”

While Banks’ quick wit abounds, his overreliance on braggadocios bars is limiting. He coyly mocks less-affluent rappers on the Rakim-guested “Dollar Bill,” and the piano-powered “Stranger” finds him commenting on the color of his jewels for the umpteenth time. The biggest infraction, though, is the Southern-bounce track “Iceman.” Despite notable appearances by 8Ball, Scarface and Young Buck, the song’s “Laffy Taffy”-esque hook is more follower than New York trendsetter.

Ultimately, that winds up being Banks’ biggest problem. Not falling far from 50 Cent’s platinum-rooted tree, Rotten Apple is fertilized with potent doses of sonic strength and catchy hooks. But overall, it isn’t the new massacre that’ll shake New York hip-hop down to its core.—ROB MARKMAN

  • weezybaby

    first banks sucks

  • Mr.Me

    I asked this old church lady to pray for gunits downfall. Like nobody knew this shit would get a L. It shoulda got a M.

  • e

    Banks must have really dropped the ball to get an L from XXL how does yn feel about having Banks on the cover now

  • http://www.myspace.com/kracktheking KR

    One thing must notice is that this got an “L” and Yayo got an “XL” I believe…strange…not just the fact that Banks has been rated lower than Yayo, but the fact that if everyone thinks Banks is superior to Yayo, does Yayo deserve an “M”? Just a question…

  • moneyindabank

    who gives a shit if it’s rated L i still think it’s going to be fire..

  • Conte

    You beleive this, Rick Ross gets a XXL and Banks gets an L. I don’t think this is right, all Ross talks about is selling coke. This reviewer Rob is trash. Banks ablum is fire, fuck this shit. Still gonna cop it.

  • N-Z

    you know, this shit’s funny..Banks is one of the only dudes I listen outta G-unit, and he’s the first one to get a mediocre review from XXL, Banks still one of the best out, despite his fuckin rhaspy voice

  • bank$ fan

  • Jeffrey

    Look for everybody that review does not mean anything if you think banks fell off listen to mo money part.4 and part 5 is about to come out and how can anybody folow that when they did the same thing with ice cube the bottom line is the people that write these reviews are not hood so they dont even understand the shit therefore untill the album is out check out “cake” “My house” and “Hands up” and part.5 will be out next week LLoyd Bank$ is going down as one of the greats fuck a review

  • J-Bal

  • http://xxl.com ban

    fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you rob markman you would’nt a good rap album if it bit you in the ass cock sucking offey.

  • solja

    this is the same tracklist they said was a fake. anyway……….. dont be discouraged from buying this album this is the same site that gave SHAWNNA an XL(wtf) so in that case im just gonna buy the album because these xxl ppl have different reveiwers for each album so I guess the guy who reveiwed it could be a biased guy

  • Prince of the South

    I’ll wait but chances are the album is exactly like they said, I haven’t heard it so I’ll wait. Banks last album was hard to listen to I damn near fell asleep after warrior part 2 b/c of his voice. If anything this L rating should get them boys at G-unit , motovated to step they game up. We get tired of hearing about Guns, cars, clothes, and women. Show some growth. That boy Banks better put death wish on his cd to get a few extra sales, and it better be hot, or he’s going to BRICK. 50 and Buck better bring it on they new records and jump down that boy Game’s throat or they won’t live past 2007.

  • Yo Yo Ma

    XXL didnt give a G Unit album a XL or XXL? Wow. But still expect to see Hot Rod or Olivia on the cover next month.

  • realnessalways

    solja shut the hell up shawnna is cold and her cd was tight every single song she shoulda got a XXL

  • fuckthegame

    xxl will give the new 50 cent cd an xxl……lil he cd will get an xl..to make up for ther ratings on lloyd banks….xxl will have one of them gunit homos on the cover next month….hot rod cd will get an xl at least……lil he and hot rod cd wont even go used condom combined

  • Drama Kid

    This Album Is Gonna Be Straight Crack. Fuck That Rating. Rick Ross Album Was Bullshit. Banks Is Gonna Keep The Unit On Top. Then Its Buck’s Turn.

  • Big Work

    You guys don’t get it. They are giving Banks an L, to show they aren’t bias toward G-Unit, even though we all know they are.

    First off…Banks gets an L. Secondly, Thoughts of a Predicate Felon got an XL…AND BLOOD MONEY got an XL. So, they are trying to show they aren’t blatantly riding G-Unit.

  • mac

    im still coppin the album too ima c wut the source has to say about this album cuz every magazine and person has a different opinion , the hunger for more was fire so this gonna b hot the one line the guy up there said was hot and how the fuck does rick ross get an xl get out of here nigga lyrics aint touchin banks but ima calm down on the hatin ima just wait for the album to drop everybody who says they coppin it i hope yall do wut ya say.. plus the album is comin out in 2 more months so i dont know if this guy up here has actually heard the official release

  • BlueHefner is the best rapp

    Fuck xxl, the guy who rated this can go fuck him self, Rotten Apple gon be the best rap album this year. it’s go’in 3x plat. Fuck xxl, fuck givin the album a L , just a bunch of shit talk, never trusted a reviewer, The songs, that i’ve heard till now from banks is soo good it will get an xxl or at least xl, fuck xxl

  • Black Mask

    Wow, its a surprise to see that they gave Banks’review L. I wasn’t surprise cause the truth is Banks did falling off since Hunger For More. I meant if Banks is better than Game then how come he’s taking long time to respond Game?, even Game shitty on Banks alot. The Game did step his game up and improved his flow and lyrically since The Documentary. Banks just depend on 50 Cent too. Banks doesn’t know how to stand his own two feet.

  • Black Mask

    I will download it if I don’t like then I’ll delete it if I like it then I won’t delete it and won’t buy album cause its already on my computer and save my money.

  • CaRamel

    yeah I think the reviewer has a problem wit G-Unit cuz he a bitch just like Game!!! but NEwayz, I agree with Christmas (about 20 comments b4 me) the tracklisting is fake, and Banks even said it himself as recent as earlier this week……so wherever this cat got the music….it’s NOT the final tracklisting!!!! I think this album is superior to “The Hunger For More” and this will be proven once the album is out September 19th….oh and I will be there to cop it!!! GGGG-Unit!!! G-Unot Killa!!!

  • Anthony

    Bank$ is sick, I doubt this review is from someone who actually knows about rap, I’m pretty sure its gonna be one of the hottest of the year, I mean, how can you give an album that has “Cake” less than a XL? That song alone is worth a extra size, this reviewer needs to stop hatin’!

  • fuckthegame

    im not gonna waste 5 minutes downloadin this asswipe

    i know the reviewer gon be readin this so i’ll say this, whoever you are, you seriously need to get your sense of music on track again cause you didnt even say anything bout any tracks but the few u mentioned, what about his second single “help” or the song called “addicted” or “playboy part 2″ or “gilmores”? seems like i know more bout this album than u, however it is your opinion but damn the review seemed like an essay you had to hand in on a last minute type deal cause that review didnt touch on shit but a few tracks, u aint even said nothin bout scarfaces shit on there or mobb deep or yayo, you need to give me some contact info so i can takeover your job cause your review sucked and xxl is the last credible mag to do reviews since it first came out

  • TheMightyO

    You guys are really slipin’ dis Lloyd Banks and Rick Ross got a higher rating. I think maybe the two ratings got mixed up that must be the only reason for this. Ross album is trash in the can the only song that’s good is Push It because they sampled that cool song from Scarface. You can’t even hear that fat man over the music anyways it’s louder then him.

  • http://myspace.com/rebeldr myspace.com/rebeldr

    funny shit cuz i think banks is hot!! i bet later on xxl is gonna do a re-review and give banks a xxl cuz i bet that fucking album is gonna be crazy son!!

  • tical164

    OUTKAST GETS AN L? METHOD MAN GETS AN L? LLOYD BANKS GETS AN L? RICK ROSS GETS AN XL? IS THIS MAGAZINE SERIOUS? IMA ASK THIS QUESTION AGAIN, IS XXL SERIOUS??U GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.IMA QUOTE MY MAN METHOD ON THIS ONE: “half these critics ain’t got half this skill” BELIEVE THAT!

  • DJ Tigerlee

    It’s official..the blood has been drawn..the writing is on the wall..XXL..has finally tried to distance itself from their former cash cow..shots from the blogs..suttle shots in the mag..and now a mediocre review of a mediocre result from Banks..Since when has an album been given demerits because it follows a successful formula. If it really had ‘potent doses of sonic strength and catchy hooks’ then what is the problem? Did albums like Busta’s latest shake ‘New York down to the core’? Yayo and Mobb didn’t sell big #’s..so what does it have to do with this review? Did you bring up Busta’s lack of sales during his review? The 50 interview called it..the bias is easy to see..when no other record company is held to these new standards that are only placed on G-unit..with that said..it may be an ‘L’..just at leat pretend to have actually listened to the whole album

    XXL is trying to redeem themselves because they were wrong the last two G Unit albums(Mobb Deep: XL, Yayo: XL) so this time their throwing the L on cause they figure G Unit is dying. I’m still going to get this cd regardless, based on Hunger For More only though.

  • realhiphop

    And an issue or two or go this nigga was on the cover, with 50….for what? Oh yea, that Interscope/XXL affiliation, and the fact that they HAD to have 50 on the cover with Lloyd’s retarded ass or that issue wouldn’t have sold units.

    This is why some New Yorkers piss me off. They scream, create articles, complain, bitch, yell, whine, 24-7 about “bringing back that New York shit.” But on the covers of their mags, they have the very artists that are the epitome of non-New York shit. And its obviously because of sells. But I feel those niggaz can’t complain if they’re not doing nothing about it. Sean Price’s Monkey Barz originally received a XXL, but the powers that be changed it to an XL. If that employee is on some real hip hop shit and on some bring New York shit back, he shoulda bounced right then and there.

    Those magazines throw their rocks then hide their hands. They’re just as much at fault as the artists, but they won’t express it. Its the pot calling the kettle black. If they want New York shit back, then cover New York shit, put artists that’s been putting down that authentic New York shit (AZ, Premier, Boot Camp Clik, Ghostface, etc) on the cover and leave them on the fence New York shit representers (Lloyd Banks, 50, Busta Rhymes, Cam’ron, Jim Jones) on the fuckin bench. But money talks and bullshit walks. But if they’re the hip hop heads they proclaim to be and want New York back, then they’d go out there and do it. But if they aren’t exerting the effort, then they have no right to complain. That’s how I see it.

  • cpthedon

    first of all, i think llyod banks is one of the few guys in the game that is on par with myself lyrically.

    secondly, i was nearly certain that llyod was going to get an xxl. i was highly conviced that xxl was and may possibly be on g-unit/interscope’s payroll. i am deeply surprised that he get’s the first “l” for a g-unit release. especially, with yayo on the fold. i thought that llyod was decending lyrically as of late. i thought that it was just a matter of time for g-unit’s “studio gangsta/r&b records” to falter.

    Banks puts out a song with fifty singing ” hands up” on the hook…You G-Unit dick riders should be glad this album did not get what it really deserved M.

    I have heard 8 songs off the album and they all suck…nothing worth playing over again.

  • G.Bey

    Yeah, how can Yayo(who sounds like he’s always eating a muffin when he raps)get an XL last year on a deplorable G-Unit release that I really could have used the 13 dollars for something else. This is how much I hate that album, I’d rather be sent into a store for tampons then try them out in front of the clerk to see if it would fit. Anyway, Bank$ is the best out of G-Unit and 50 is lucky to have him. I would rather hear the album for myself.

  • Gohan

    Fuck BWS & G-Unit….Garbage

  • Prince Of The South

    I like 50, but Banks is going to flop just like xxl said. “Buck is money in the bank, but Banks is looking more like a safe deposit box these days” That’s the truth, Banks fell off after that Big Withdraw cd from last year. How can you give it a xxl when it hasn’t came out? I think a L is correct because Banks has never been the nicest on the mic, but he’s always killed it with the wordplay though. Buck going to hold it down because he’s from the south and people down here only listen to a G-unit record if Buck on it. 50 trying to go back to that Get Rich/Power to the Dollar flow, but it might be too late. Like I said I like some of G-Unit and get down with 50, but Game new cd is going to out perform Banks record, because Banks has no buzz and Game is going to sell because everyone want to see if he can do it without 50. If 50 and Buck don’t bring it then them boys at G-unit going to be on Koch.

  • Gohan

    All their sales figures will flop below expectations because niggaz is tight nowa days and they’re all bootlegging the shit! That’s why hip hop sales are down generally.

    dont disrespect the east coast ever in ya life any1 this where hiphop originated every1 tryna bring new york back but really were did it go is wut banks and 50 said in recent interviews.. only thing i dont understand is that its about 8 million fuckin ppl in new york city y yall not supportin these rappers its the biggest city in the world wuts good wit that for real we need 2 support every1 in the east coast dont listen 2 these reveiws from any1 until the album drop cuz niggaz dont really know wuts on the album banks could b readin this ryte now and change the album u never know man but dont blame gunit for new york “supposedly” fallin off cuz only ones 2 blame is yall selves for not supportin the rappers and anyway i like every1 in g-unit cuz they all bring something different 2 the table buck is on his lyrical tupac shit,yayo he keeps the crowd goin he the good hype man he is lyrical when he want to be, banks.. well hes a beast man may not b the most creative but hes lyrical and verstile he not all about punchlines if u listen 2 his latest mixtape he dont riley on the punches heavy like he use 2 and thats shows verstility, and 50 man he just a creative bastard and he knows how 2 sell record cuz hes a business man and he can b lyrical if he wants 2 he just gettin money man dont hate! and the game man he is nice but 2 b real and dont front hes only nice when he is dissin somebody plus he makes a livin off of name droppin he still sayin 50′s name in one blood come on now get over it and if u noticed the hook for the song is a sample i think he might do that threw his whole album 2 trick yall but fuck it if u like game u like game but ima stick 2 bein a g-unit fan they the only ones i seen walk into a fight instead of runnin away from one (vibe awards)but fuck this reviewer and for u haters, dont bother 2 leave comments cuz u just gonna get ripped by these fans on some real shit im koppin the album october 10 support my nigga banks.. also i fuck wit certain south rappers ones that r actually lyrical like my nigga ludacris kop release therapy september 26 shit will b crack and again fuck that reviewer guy

    if u want to sell records you have to generate a strong buzz! u cant keep sayin da same shit on every album and expect to grow and create a new fanbase! u got 2 think outside of da box and come up wit something a little more original, somethin that’ll turn heads.. ppl like surprises… dont b so predictable!
    come on now his album comes out in like 3 weeks and his only buzz is in da big apple… sorry da title describes it perfectly 50 cent is a tree and YES u r the ROTTEN APPLE!

  • bmort

    ima be real. i dont understand how people can say hiphop is dead. rappers been making commercials and party music. bottomline is the so called lyricists were making millions and doing commercials and shit but now they have fell off. its a simple case of “UR TIME IS UP PASS THE FUCKING TORCH”. people wanna say 50 is a smart business man and knows how to make money when he makes a commercial ass song but if yung joc does the same he fake and commercial. Like jay z say dont judge a rapper by the song he comes out with because thats just a smart business move. listen to the entire album and then judge him. The problem with alot of these rappers is after they make it big they keep coming out with commercial hits and people lose touch with the side that we fell in love with. I could never see 50 the way i saw him when he came out.

    Dont say the south is killing hiphop because NAS was making songs with ginuwine, ja rule was singing, Jay Z is always making love songs now with beyonce and dmx lost his damn mind way before snap music came out(which doesn’t look any worse then the harlem shake).Im feeling dipset cause sem niggas dont hate even though some people think they wack they seem like they doing they thing. hope lloyd banks does good because he seems like he is humble and down to earth and i never heard him hate.

  • http://XXLmag.com Chris Meza

    Banks is by far the best lyricist out right now. Hunger for More has to be considered with Nas’s Illmatic as one of the best debuts ever. I have been waiting for years for his ext album to drop, so its about that time!

  • ALALALALA!

  • XXL?

    disspointed in llyod he was the gem of G-UNIT. G-unit is fallen off same with that whole shady aftermath era….thank god!

  • http://www.xxlmag.com/?p=3941 Chill

    You are Whyllin
    The Hunger For More was a good album but can not be compared to illmatic because it had too many commercial songs on it. Rotten Apple is has that potential because it features a good mix of 50 Cent collabos, solid lyricists like Rakim and Banks finally Storytelling on more than one song. This Album is going to surprise everyone. That Song Cake is fire a better video needs to come out for that song.
    Can Anyone tell me why Dre never hooks Banks Up with some beats?

  • davon

    i think XXL suck at rating how they gonna give rick ross a better then banks it wrong i would never buy rick ross album i don,t even pay attention to is video i could care less about him bank desrve better then a L they need to stop all south rapper suck except ludacris bank deserve a XL because i know his alume is gonna be hot his mixtape are hot is he said it him self his mixtape are better then rapper album and it true i rather by a g-uint mixtap then any of the rapper out now they all suck i get better shit from lloyd banks for $7.00 then $16.00 from the rappper out now any way i can,t wait till is album come out am not paying any attention any of these other rapper like T.i. ,rick ross,ect

  • champagne campaign

    U guys r crazy! u really dropped the ball with this one. I have the album and we must not be listening to the same thing. It deserves atleast a XL. r u listening to the lyrics, can anybody mess with banks word play. how are you gonna compare iceman to laffy taffy. I understand the backlash from g-unit cuz 50 is cocky as hell and he disses everybody, but come on banks is just nasty, and this album adds to his credibility. I understand alot of the reviews are political, but u should have given yayo a L and this a XL. Gilmores, make a move, iceman, get clapped, ny ny are all hot cuts, just to name a few, but I listen to the album all the way through. I’ll give you playboy pt 2 is just ok considerin how hot playboy pt 1 was. i’m still a fan of the mag but this was a horrible review.

  • Murda Mook

    you stupid little fuckers. i guess xxl got an 1-5 rating, that means an L is a 3 and thats good, not very good, not a classic, but it aint ok or wack.. i bought this album yesterday (retail) real shit tho, and its very good, not a classic, but very good (xl). all yal fuckboys..

  • ross

    Murda Mook, r u really from london (vocabulary) i think you from pakistan

  • Rick

    I bought rotten apple on the 7th three days before its release if you have not gotten it then dont this is just terrible. The hyped up rakim song is just a sampled voice over every song is too slow it is just embarrasing to see such talent wasted. UNLESS YOUR A DIE HARD FAN DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY, THIS ALBUM HAS NO HITS.

  • S on my chest

    Got the shit, the shits what you expect from him, but it’s far from a classic and if Game shits better then i’m afraid it’s over. 50 needs to pull something out his ass because at present the units putting out albums that are just above average.

  • gunit dissapoints yet again

    well im not tryin to be biased here and maybe BAnks desrves more than an L maybe not regardless ive heard every track on the Rotten Apple and frankly it sucks! now im not a game fan or wayne fan or nothin like that but after this tragedy i should be!! this album is one of the worst g-unit albums ever produced im sorry to say it but….g-unit really is dead!!!

  • olli

    Banks should get xl..yayo and mobb was crap,but banks flows and punches ill.
    the only one in g unit (and buck) thats hungry

  • SMACKYOMAMMA

    I got $200 on Molie_mo….. You know GAME is gonna outsell BANKS!!! Superman you fuckin stupid…. Got yo tights in a knot…. Bitch nigga… This nigga posted up in every comment section saying ” COP THE ROTTEN APPLE”. Are you getting paid? I hope so you stupid GUNIT SLUT….

  • SMACKYOMAMMA

    SUPERMAN look at the comment section nigga… People whar are GUNIT fans are even disppointed!!!! You on a sinking ship you dumb bitch… Fuckin Stan ass, Titanic NIgga..!!! Hahahahahahahaha……..

  • SMACKYOMAMMA

    Even after his celebrated mixtape grind and platinum debut, The Hunger for More, Lloyd Banks is still an underdog. With Tony Yayo’s and Mobb Deep’s G-Unit debuts both failing to reach the million-sold mark, the Queens, N.Y., native is left to reestablish his crew’s dominance on the charts outside of figurehead 50 Cent. Couple that pressure with New York’s yearning for an East Coast resurgence, and Banks’ sophomore release, Rotten Apple, is shaping up to be mission impossible.

  • SPIT BARS

    just got the rotten apple. at first i was worried this wouldnt cut it but it looks like g unit is back on the map. this cd is fire!!! if you dont got it yet get it, its worth it.

  • NO GAMES

    the verdict is out i was for sure g unit was over but it looks like banks might be able to revive the unit the album sounds like a classic my friend let me hear it ITS DOPE dont sleep on banks ya’ll newyork hip hop is making a comeback ima get this and the doctors advocate how that for you suckers

  • gunit dissapoints yet again

    sales will be terrible for this ALbum too much negative crticism and yea for good reason it really isnt good AT ALL! sad to say iT!

  • RIPTHEMIC

    classic. banks has done it again. he surely will go down as one of the best lyricists from nyc. yo, when i say hot i mean “hot.” after the long drought of no good hip hop and the recycled southern music its time to finally pay banks his due. if you want real hiphop then this is it. probably one of the few lyrical albums youll get to listen to in a long time. playboy pt.2? POW! gggg-unit!!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    well say what u wanna say about him but banks has sold at least 60 thousand copies first day out

    i will be shocked if he sells more than 225,000 copies first week

  • GOTTA GET EM

    banks is back this is what hip hop needs finally something u can actually listen to, not just joc or dance to this will go down as a classic the beats from havoc are sick its fire from beginning to end gggggg-unit

  • PLAYBOY

    The punchline kid is back! the boy wonder has done it again i can see now why hes the best seller in g-unit after 50 im tellin everybody in here go and buy the album the unit is back you wont be dissapointed if you like rap music at all this is worth the money then get the new hot rod coming out and buck the world ggg-unit!

  • Prince Of The South

    I can kind of see where he was comming from, there are 11 maybe 12 tracks that you could keep on the album. It’s still better than some of the garbage out there, but after hearing his mixtape I expected more. It’s still a solid album, just not a supperior on and it’s far from a classic. I think it’s worth checking out if you doubt Banks as an artist.

  • G……Niggah…GGGG G-Unit

    Game, what…..Bitch

  • SUPERMAN

    SMACKYOMAMMA you fuckin dick head! Go suck a bws dick. you can do it NEXT to yo momma whilst me and my home boy are spit roasting THE CRACK WHORE. My balls are smacking on her chin.

  • Bigstan

    Lloyd Banks is one of the best mixtape artist out there…period ! The boys nice with his…I’ll wait to hear the album my self to judge and rate because alot of muthaf$#%&s don’t know rap from crap !

  • hip hop fan

    Lloyd Bank$ Rotten Apple iz crazy, hip sees a big light. The best album of 2006 hopefully he sales cuz banks iz slept on even if he sale 200,000 itz a hit because nowaday nobody sales

  • MAC

    i got the album on tuesday and man… this album is Fire! not 2 gas it its not gonna b the best album of the year but its definitely on the list at first i thought the haters where gonna b ryte about the album(this is b4 i heard it) but i put them head phones on a started listenin and whoa this is definitely a new york album this shit is tough if u dont like it u prolly not street enough for this cuz thats definitely wut this album is… i really think u shouldnt listen 2 those reviews since they got a fake ass tracklist up there cuz they song aint called “dollarbill” its called “you know the deal” and banks said he made some changes on the album so i dont think they even heard the official album but anyway its worth the money he definitely gonna do good im rootin for my nigga banks 60 thousands in the first day wit only 1 single out come on yall gotta give him credit … i cant speak 2 the haters cuz thats just wut they gonna do …. everybody has their own opinion but my reviews for this album well i would give it and xl and if this was the source i would give it 3 1/2 mics im not gonna call it a classic but hes still young so definitely expect even better albums in the future from this guy..im not gonna give anything away but get that album keep hip hop alive and new york for that matter where it all started… i know i did u so should u, get that fuckin release therapy from my nigga luda !!!!

  • vic

    Chris Villain is finally the first person to say something educated on this entire post. I heard this album and I can honestly say that is full of dissapointment. I enjoyed Hunger for More, but I really wasn’t expecting much out of this project, considering g units recent struggles. The CD does begin with some stand out tracks, but plummets shortly after with songs that have absolutely no substance and rely soley on the production (which is still not even that great). I am still trying to figure out what all the fuss is about as far as this guys lyrics are concerned. Most people that defend this guy claim he is one of the best “lyricist” or the “punchline king.” I have no idea how one could back this up. His flow is a disaster, his dilivery puts one to sleep, and his lyrical content must have been written by a 10 year old. So in all actuality XXL was accurate and somewhat generous on this review.

  • Escobar

    An L rating is entirely appropriate for Banks’ sophomore effort – I’m a supporter of Banks, but he really let me down with this release. I’m not big on many mainstream cats, but Banks has shown a degree of promise, and potential. I was hoping he could’ve utilised that potential, and put out an album better than The Hunger For More, but as it stands, this album was an enormous dissapointment.

    Don’t say I’m one of those G-Unot fools either – Game and 50 Cent are both equal in my eyes, and neither one of them fair to well in my opinion. I just wish Banks could break away from G-Unit, get some better beats, stop being so lethargic with his flow, and focus on the content of his songs so he could release the classic album I personally believe he’s capable of – as it stands now, he’s a decent rapper who could easily mould himself into one of the best in the game, if he applied himself.

    And yes, I know there’s too many ‘big words’ for the XXL community in this community; go grab a dictionary.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com Ra

    Now i havent heard this album yet, but 2 give Rick Ross a XL iz crazy, his album has no diversity…his whole album iz about pushin WHITE. i’ll have 2 cop this album 2 c 4 myself.

  • http://XXL The Game K.O.

    Banks cd Rotten Apple is a straight street classic not a hip hop classic but a street classic with classics like Hands Up Get Clapped my favorite Cake and struggle songs like Survival and BOMB tracks like NY NY (Damn only if Tony Yayo could rap that good on his album) and nods to the ladies like Help and One night Stand those are classics and this CD has some of the tightest hooks I had ever heard so yo this CD is worth the $15

  • Southpaw

    Somebody’s been suckin’ an awful lotta dick to make Bank’s CD get rated so fucking low.

    How many times have these cats listened to this CD before they put they 2 cents in? Once? Twice? And what the fuck were they doing while they were listening to the CD?

    Obviously they haven’t been listening to the lyrics closely and if they have, they didn’t catch half the shit he’s been sayin’. That’s not Bank’s fault.

    Most people in this world are pussies, so that means most people like pussy music. And what do pussies like to do? Get fucked, and fucked HARD. That’s why these same cats who rate this shit so low eat up these other “half ass emcee’s” (I’m not going to mention any names) albums and give them XXL.

    Don’t get it twisted, I’m not G Unit’s biggest fan, BUT Lloyd Banks is one of the hardest hitters in the game I don’t think anybody can fuck with him. He’s articulate, he’s catchy as fuck, and he’s got mad punchlines. His swagger is off the chain. Wake the fuck up ya’ll.

  • cpthedon

    southpaw, you are saying a bunch of half thruths. i never thought i would ever see a gunit/shady artist with less than a xl. i doubt the album is that bad. i know that lyrically it should be one of the best of the year.

    for the record, there are two brothers in va(clipse), a dude from no (weezy)and and young rapper from philly(cassidy) that will give it to llyod anyday. not to mention that cats that have been destroying his camp the past year (jad +styles).

    llyod the best? maybe top 25-30 lyricist out

    Man that kidd is better then LLoyd Banks and i heard that Hov said that he was going to be better than him bottum line.Young Red Gold. I wonder what they will give him in XXL. I would give him an XL because he did have some flaws on his mixtape. Most beats he spit to is lloyd banks rotten apple beats. I heard lloyd banks is his mentor as far as financially. He aint on G-Unit West dummies. He is just G-UNIT INFAMOUS.

  • http://Americamaid.net Fuck all moms dads and family.

  • Joker of the G-Park click, Brownsville, Texas

    Y’all muthafuckas at XXL suck dick for giving this album an L. It deserved a XXL rating. Y’all be riding the media’s and The Lame’s dick to hard. Rotten Apple is tight as fuck! 1 of the best albums of the year. I don’t know what’s all this talk about record sales being down. ‘Cause I bought 2 copies of this album on it’s drop date. Oct. 10th. But anyway. The album’s HOT! I hear all this shit about New York wanting to make a comeback or whatever but it hasn’t gone no where. It’s been here! Lloyd Banks proves it. The only thing is that nobody in Ney York support each other no more. Everybody want diss G-Unit to revive their rap career. They should be giving them their props to the fullest. But instead everybody show thier hate and start saying dumb shit like G-Unit’s new shit is weak. They fell off or wahtever. Knowing that their music is still hot. That’s fucked up! Just like y’all. Even you at XXL gave this album a weak-ass rating just to put a dent in their sales. For what? I guess y’all don’t like to be wrong or something. ‘Cause y’all gave Mobb Deep’s album a XL rating and it flopped. So I guess you didn’t want it to come back and bite you in the ass. Mobb Deep has been wack! Before G-Unit. 50′s just staying true to his roots and is trying to help them boys. But Banks has been lyrically killing muthafuckas since day 1. So why would you guys side with the haters. Is that how y’all handle your business. You got your back against the wall and you give in. Bitches! By the way how you love that Lloyd Banks cover on The Source. Tight, huh? Y’all need to keep it real and do what;s right and support your own. Y’all from New York and y’all side with whoever Mtv says is going to be the next big thing instead of supporting your hometown. Fucked Up! Give this album the rating it deserves. XXL! By thr way check out the prequel. The New York Times. It’s tight as fuck too and didn’t see it your bootleg material section. What’s The Deal?
