Punchline King: The 25 Best Lloyd Banks Verses

#3. Lloyd Banks f/ Nate Dogg "Til The End" (1st verse) (2004)


Album: The Hunger For More
Quotable: "The confusion and jealously and dishonor'll spin ya/But there’s nothing that hurt worse than when that gun powders in ya."
Complex says: Built in the same vein as 50’s “Many Men,” the somber “Til The End” was the highlight of Banks’ debut. Ironically, it was the one song where he discontinued the lyrical braggadocio typical of G-Unit. Instead, he meditated on the lifestyles of the poor and dangerous in Southside Jamaica, Queens—where death is not only promised, but possibly right around the corner. But ultimately, the song is a reiteration of a soldier’s values and the fierce loyalty that estranged crew members like Buck and Game could never wrap their head around.
