Lloyd Banks is a rapper who performs with the East Coast hip hop group G-Unit which also has the rappers 50 Cent and Tony Yayo in the line-up. G-Unit gave the music world hit albums like ‘Beg for Mercy’ and ‘T.O.S (Terminate on Sight) which prompted Banks to try out his luck as a solo performer. His debut solo album ‘The Hunger for More’ was a bit hit and spawned the popular single ‘On Fire’. With his musical successes, the rapper has come a long way from the difficult childhood experiences he endured. He was raised by a single mother as his father was in prison and he grew up amidst a violent neighbourhood. Rapping and music were the only means of escapism for the young boy and his childhood friends 50 Cent and Tony Yayo. They soon converted this passion into a profession. Born as Christopher Charles Lloyd, he adopted the name Lloyd Banks and started creating mix-tapes which made him a sort of local celebrity. Together with 50 Cent and Tony Yayo, Banks formed the Hip Hop group G-Unit which broke into the music industry with their explosive hit album ‘Beg for Mercy’. Known for his style quotient, excessive jewelry and raw sex appeal, Banks is one of the most loved rappers of the contemporary times.
