Lloyd Banks Bad Boy, Banks, C. Banks, C. Lloyd, C. Lloyde, L BanksBorn: April 30, 1982, New Carrollton, Maryland Lloyd Banks was raised in Jamaica, Queens by his Puerto Rican mother--his father spent much of his son's childhood behind bars. Like many young men, he found solace amidst the poverty and ruin of his community through ghetto poetry and the work of rappers like Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick. He dropped out of high school at the age of sixteen, finding the structured environment a hindrance to his developing talent for rhyming. After appearing on numerous local "mixtapes", Banks, along with childhood friends Tony Yayo and 50 Cent formed a crew called G-Unit, a group that proceeded to redefine the term "street marketing" with a series of self-released albums that included original numbers and quality artwork. Banks stayed on with 50 Cent, appearing on the artist's--now classic--2003 debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin', November of that same year saw the release of G-Unit's Beg For Mercy. His long awaited solo debut for G-Unit/Interscope Records, Hunger For More, was released in June 2004. His second album, Rotten Apple, was released in October 2006.
