The Rotten Apple LP already boasts features from members of the G-Unit family - 50 Cent, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, Spider Loc and Mobb Deep, along with Scarface, Musiq, 8Ball and Rakim. "I tried to capture mixtape verses on album songs. Like the record I have with Rakim called "You Know the Deal," that it's bigger than just a record," Banks told Vibe.com last month. "Hip hop is a music tornado - it starts somewhere and who knows where its going to end up. There's a time and place for everything, bottom line. I just hope that when it comes back to [be centered around] lyricists, I get acknowledged for that." As far as production, Banks called on the likes of Eminem, Havoc and Timbaland.

Reviews:

''Rotten Apple'' is the second studio album by G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks. Released October 10, 2006 on G-Unit Records and Interscope Records. The album sold 143,000 copies in its first week. It debuted at number three on the ''Billboard'' 200. The title of the album is a play on the New York City nickname "Big Apple". - Wikipedia

Seems like last time we saw LB, his animated form was being stalked in Emimem's too-little-too-late anti-Dubya video for "Mosh." On new single "Hands Up," he's back to good, old-fashioned, marketable, nihilistic pimpin'. Fitty (remember him?) drives the chorus to that textbook G-Unit Knight Rider throb.
