    I don't see but maybe one person saying they fuck w/ Banks. @Twamp. I think Donn too. Hunger for More was better then GRODT. So was Welcome to Ca$hville for that matter.

    i agree, even though Banks was/ is with G-Unit and alongside 50 Cent, he's never gotten his due respect or recognition imo

    i'm not gonna say HFM was better than GRODT but the majority of Bank's mix-tapes are CRACK compared to anybody in G-Unit.

    i stay having his shit in my rotation.

    Banks is, and always has been, a really dope lyricist. i kinda like his voice too but i prefered his 'old' sound (i.e. Hunger for More/G-Unit's prime)

    Warrior was my shit off his first solo, but I never liked his flow enough to really be a fan.

    He still flows better than most modern floss-punchline artists that can't ride a beat... but when I wanna hear that stuff I go with Jada.



    I'd rather listen to him than Obie on tracks like that. He held his own and came with a nice hook.

    Honestly, I didn't listen to the first solo enough times to let it grow on me and find more gems, and haven't heard anything since, so I can't say. Lost that first G Unit CD a couple weeks after it came out, and don't know what he even did on there, if it was hot or not.
