Lloyd Banks - I Am Legend (Freestyle)

Posted 8 years ago

With their much talked-about (but not highly-anticipated) G-Unit compilation album set for release this summer, Curtis and his big boys club will get an opportunity to redeem themselves after last year’s disappointments.  Before that time comes, however, Lloyd Banks wants to make a few things clear.  On the newly dropped freestyle, I Am Legend, Banks sounds alive for the first time in years and rips the track with an energy level more common to fellow Unit member, Young Buck.  Following unsatisfactory sales figures and reviews for his sophomore album, Rotten Apple, Banks was clumped amongst other industry MCs who failed to live up to their debut offerings.  Only time will tell if those judgments were justified.
