“Happy anniversary! Today makes 16 years since my debut album “The Hunger For More” dropped!!” writes Banks. “Top 3 songs?” While the question may seem straightforward, answering it proves far more difficult. Personally speaking, “Till The End” probably stands as my favorite Lloyd Banks song ever, and “When The Chips Are Down” and “Warrior Part 2” stand close to heart to this day. Of course, scrolling through the Twitter responses to Banks’ question highlights a variety of different songs, with “Work Magic” and “I’m So Fly” emerging as strong fan favorites.
One thing is clear — Lloyd Banks’ debut is as beloved today as it was back in 2004, proving that it sits comfortably within the classic canon. And let’s be honest — who didn’t love G-Unit during their impeccable early millennium run? Congratulations to Lloyd Banks, and happy anniversary to The Hunger For More.
