Punchline King: The 25 Best Lloyd Banks Verses

#18. 50 Cent f/ Lloyd Banks "50/Banks" (2002)


Album: 50 Cent Is The Future
Quotable: "My name is popping and I ain't been at it long/My next 16 gonna make Flex drop a Bin Laden bomb."
Complex says: Ahh, the early days. 50 was the boss, Yayo was the capo, and songs like this helped establish Banks as the crew's enforcer. When he opened up his verse over the snatched Timbaland beat with boasts of celebrating the next rapper's death at IHOP, it felt like the G-Unit boys were employing a ruthless "Get down or lay down" policy. And it worked—for a minute there, New York rap was back.
