Civil Interview: Lloyd Banks Breaks Down His Writing Process, Says ‘Cold Corner 3’ Is Coming Soon
by Staff Editor
We conclude our G-Unit interview series with the silent, but always focused Lloyd Banks, who plans to flood the market this year with brand new music.
Distancing himself from not only 50 Cent, but also the industry prior to the G-Unit reunion at this past Summer Jam festival, Banks made it clear that he never lost his passion for making music. In fact, while breaking down his entire writing process, the PLK revealed that he’s got about 150-200 songs written his phone right now, unrecorded. We learned the many techniques Banks uses in his writing process, giving us the inside scoop on how he crafts the metaphors and punchlines he’s been known for.
To the anxious Lloyd Banks fans who have been waiting for new music, don’t sweat it, Banks also revealed that he plans to drop more than two solo projects this year, the first of which being Cold Corner 3 expected to be released “very, very soon.” Reminiscing on his 5-mixtape 5 Or Nothing series that he released in the year of 2010, Banks plans to follow suit in 2015.
For the remainder of our conversation, Banks talks about how the Unit internally decides which songs they’re going to release and when they’re going to release it; how Banks reacted to Eminem telling him that he was one of the greatest ever; and how it feels to finally be reunited with the Unit.
