What is Lloyd Banks’s Net Worth?
Lloyd Banks is an American hip-hop artist and rapper who has a net worth of $9 million. Banks and the rest of G-Unit parted ways with Interscope Records in 2009, and the group subsequently inked a distribution deal with EMI. The Hunger for More 2 was Banks’ third studio album, and it was released in 2010 under the label.
Christopher Lloyd is a mixed-race man of Puerto Rican and African-American ancestry who was born in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in the South Jamaica neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.
Lloyd’s mother raised him and his two brothers while his father was incarcerated for the majority of his youth. As a high school student, Lloyd attended August Martin but left when he was 16 years old.
He adopted the stage name Banks, which was also held by his uncles, who had inherited the name from their great, great-grandfather.
Childhood pals Tony Yayo, 50 Cent, and Lloyd Banks came together to establish the band G-Unit.
When the UTP gang visited New York and 50 Cent heard Young Buck rapping, they got to know each other. Young Buck was added to the group and signed by Aftermath Entertainment when 50 Cent inked his contract with them.
On the Nas Promo Tour, the Cash Money Tour, and the Ruff Ryders Tour, 50 Cent was accompanied by Tony Yayo, an older and more seasoned rapper. Dr. Dre immediately gave 50 Cent his own record label, and he then dropped the album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ with the song “Don’t Push Me” and the remixed version of “P.I.M.P.” featuring Lloyd Banks.
Beg for Mercy, the group’s debut official album was released in November 2003, not long after the group had started their own record company, G-Unit Records, which later received a double platinum certification.
Leaving a nightclub in Southside Jamaica, Queens, on September 10, 2001, Banks was shot twice. He received blows to the back and stomach, and after becoming hurt, he sprinted to the hospital. He heard about the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, as he woke up, and he saw the Twin Towers come tumbling down from his hospital bed.
In midtown Manhattan during the month of August 2005, a van carrying Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and their group was stopped after allegedly running a red light. The claimed incident between Banks and a concert promoter over performance fees happened in the small hours of January 9, 2010, in a hotel in Kitchener, Ontario.
Later, forcible imprisonment, aggravated assault, and robbery charges against Banks and three of his colleagues were brought, and they were all granted $50,000 bail. In June 2004, Lloyd Banks issued his first solo album, The Hunger for More. The first single was the summertime hit song “On Fire,” which also included 50 Cent, though he wasn’t given any credit.
Positive reviews and a successful commercial release for the album. More than 433,000 copies were sold in the first week, propelling it to the top of the Billboard charts. Since then, more than 1.5 million copies of the record have been sold, earning it RIAA platinum certification.
I’m So Fly and Karma, two further singles from The Hunger For More, were also published. Karma was a hit, peaking at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 9 on the R&B charts, and number 6 on the rap charts. Sha Money XL and Teamwork Music were in charge of managing Lloyd Banks at the time the album was released.
Initially planned to be Lloyd Banks’ follow-up album, The Big Withdrawal. Following Banks’ ménage à trois meeting with two ladies, when he left the CD album behind, the album was leaked to the internet. The album included 23 tracks when it was leaked. The disclosure prompted Lloyd Banks to start working on Rotten Apple.
“Rotten Apple” is a pun on the moniker “The Big Apple” for New York City. On October 10th, 2006, it was made available. After one week, 143,000 copies of the album were sold, placing it at #3. Because his first album, Rotten Apple, sold a much greater percentage of copies in its first week, Rotten Apple was not seen as a commercial success.
“Hands Up,” “The Cake,” and “Help” are the three singles he has released from Rotten Apple. Banks was dropped from Interscope Records in 2009. A new song by Banks off his upcoming third studio album, “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley,” with Juelz Santana was made public at the end of January 2010.
After being dropped by Interscope Records in 2009, Lloyd Banks revealed on Friday, August 13, 2010, on MTV News that EMI Label Services and 50 Cent’s record label, G-Unit Records, have entered a distribution and promotion agreement under which EMI will market and distribute all of G-catalog Unit’s in North America, including Lloyd Banks’ third album, H.F.M. 2, in that region (Hunger for More 2).
He appeared on the 2011 remix of Juelz Santana and Queen Rapper’s song “Ride the Wave.” On August 2, 2015, Banks addressed his much anticipated “Cold Corner 3” and lamented the state of hip-hop at the time during a performance at BB King’s in New York City.
He announced that the project would be made commercially available and that pre-orders would be accepted. But he made it clear that the album would not be released if the pre-order totals did not meet his expectations. At the time of writing, he has not yet published a new album.
