Punchline King: The 25 Best Lloyd Banks Verses

#23. G-Unit "Straight Outta Southside" (2008)


Album: T.O.S.: Terminate On Sight
Quotable: "Fuck the police with a HIV carrier!"
Complex says: Although it was presented as a tribute to Sean Bell (sorry, but screaming "fuck the police" doesn't make a song a tribute), "Straight Outta Southside" was actually G-Unit's attempt at a "Straight Outta Compton"-type track, rife with sociological commentary and nihilistic panache. Banks may have had the fewest bars on the song, but he showed up spitting venom. We only had one question: when did he start calling himself "Banko?"
