RHYME OF THE MONTH: Lloyd Banks

G-HOLY.COM “RHYME OF THE MONTH” [JANUARY 2021]

Earlier this month, Griselda Records dropped the soundtrack to their first film release, ‘Conflicted‘. On the third track, Lloyd Banks can be heard completely solo on “Element Of Surprise”. He fully lived up to the name, as one may not suspect a strictly ‘Banks’ single to land on a Griselda project. Not completely out of line though, as the “PLK” has collaborated with ‘GxFR’ artists for their projects, as well as his own. Without further ado, let’s lock into the verse and see why it’s chosen as G-HOLY.com‘s “Rhyme Of The Month” for January, 2021. Let’s Go!::

“Uh, start the pay homage discussion, y’all niggas cloned me, cousin
You climbing up in the ranks, but I’m big homie punchin
Retired three of my jerseys, Ginóbili, Tony, Duncan
Got a low tolerance lately, these nosy hoes is something
Picture me stuck in my era, a frozey pose assumption
My twenty-four’s a mamba bite, with eights I’m Kobe dunkin
I helped you all off the strength of my heart, you owe me nothin
They all the same, can’t tell ’em apart with Rollies frontin
How you gon’ threaten me with rеlevance? I left alrеady
Separated from entertainment, now my head is steady
The industry can SMD, I keep the letters ready
Always been disciplined, the dedication’s necessary
You gas your favorite to bait me, I’ll make a casket out him
Don’t compare me to niggas without a classic album
It don’t matter how long I’m missin’, they’ll ask about him
Fuck all that new drip, jewelry under my jacket drownin‘”

Most Quotable Lines:

“My twenty-four’s a mamba bite, with eights I’m Kobe dunkin'”

How you gon’ threaten me with rеlevance? I left alrеady
Separated from entertainment, now my head is steady

Don’t compare me to niggas without a classic album
It don’t matter how long I’m missin’, they’ll ask about him

Breakdown:

Banks was chosen not only for the verse’s technical skill, but the approach, slick lines and low-key answering questions that we had about his current status. This is top-level post “G-Unit prime” Lloyd Banks.
