Lloyd Banks - On Fire
The press release says that, with the release of this single, "Lloyd Banks steps out of the shadows to continue G-Unit's...etc..." but you suspect that the release of this single was due more to 50 Cent giving it the nod than Lloyd Banks making a break for solo success.
Produced by Eminem, On Fire has a great track sat behind Banks' lazy vocal and although he tries for something of the Southern attitude of Snoop Dogg or J-Kwon, there's neither a rhythm to his rap nor much more than a collection of hip-hop cliches.
Eminem's production is a mix of seventies guitar funk and up-to-date hip-hop that hints at how his upcoming album will sound. For now, there's only D12 World, this and Banks' debut album, The Hunger For More, to go on with.
