Lloyd Banks’ Single Shows That His Punchlines Are Still Money (Audio)
G-Unit’s own Lloyd Banks has been “On Fire,” as of late. Last week, the self-proclaimed Punch Line King (aka P.L.K.) caught the game off guard, spitting a scorching freestyle aimed at some of today’s funny-style MCs for Funkmaster Flex on HOT 97. This week, the Queens, New York MC capitalized on the moment, dropping a banger titled “Overload.”
On the song, the rapper evokes some early 2000s era nostalgia, spitting hard bars about gettin’ money and bodyin’ haters utilizing a familiar, recognizable flow. Driven by a dark synth-horn loop, money counter sound effects and head-knockin’ shaker-infused drums, the Q Will-produced beat is also reminiscent of the sound that made Banks’ crew famous.
Banks’ recent activity may be a sign that he is poised for a comeback. Although no announcements have been made, having dropped his last studio album H.F.M. 2 in 2010, a substantial project from the MC is long overdue.
