Punchline King: The 25 Best Lloyd Banks Verses

#4. G-Unit "Poppin' Them Thangs" (2003)


Album: Beg For Mercy
Quotable: "I been hot and buzzing, niggas just slept on me/So I'm out for revenge like one of Bin Laden's cousins."
Complex says: Riding off the unprecedented success of Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, 50 was ready to put his crew on with Beg For Mercy. Though the Unit’s first single (“Stunt 101”) was a Billboard smash, it wasn’t the lyrical assault we were accustomed to. However, “Poppin’ Them Thangs” was the perfect G-Unit single at the time and Banks laced the track with his buttery flow over the undeniable piano loops of of Dr. Dre and Scott Storch. As far as his quotable, Banks had plenty reason to be out for revenge: He was shot on September 10, 2001, stumbled to the hospital, and woke up the next morning to watch the Twin Towers fall. Now that is fucked up.
