Lloyd Banks prepares Third Album

26 Dec

It has been four years since Lloyd Banks last released an album. This comes as a bit of a surprise that he has also been a victim of the push-backs. He rode the wave of 50 Cent and G-Unit on his 2004 debut album and enjoyed platinum success. With his second album, he did the same thing.

However, after the release of his second album, the backlash led by former G-Unit member, The Game was taking a toll on G-Unit. Their music was losing its popularity and Banks’ album sales would suffer because of it. In 2008, 50 Cent had hoped to rebuild the buzz of G-Unit after a lackluster 2007. Instead, all that happened was a high-profile feud with Young Buck.

After the feud with Young Buck had died down, Sha Money XL left Interscope Records after a dispute. He has remained a part of G-Unit Records, but he is not with Interscope. In the past, 50 has had issues with Interscope Records. In 2007, after the release of Curtis, he said that he was going to leave the label after his next release.

Core G-Unit member, Tony Yayo left the label during the summer and Lloyd Banks left the label last summer. Recently, 50 Cent spoke on the fact that most of his G-Unit Records’ roster was no longer signed to G-Unit Records. He said that he will work out a deal with some labels to get their music out. With no label behind him, Lloyd Banks has plans of releasing a new album.

Presently, there is no title for Lloyd Banks’ third studio album, but he has promised that it will be released in June 2010. The album will come on G-Unit Records and a distributor will be announced at a later date.
