Punchline King: The 25 Best Lloyd Banks Verses

#24. Lloyd Banks f/ 50 Cent "Cake" (1st verse) (2006)


Album: Rotten Apple
Quotable: "Food on the plate for the wolves/Follow rules/Don't get moved by the tools/Blood'll ooze on your shoes."
Complex says: "Cake" was the street single off of Rotten Apple and there was no doubt he was in a foul mood. Though his first album was certified platinum, G-Unit's commercial dominance was beginning to fade by the time this rolled around, and they needed a banger to re-establish their appeal. Banks went to the crux of the matter on this one, creating a moody, melancholy homage to the loot with 50 backing him up. In the end, the album didn't do that well, but if any track reminds you why we need Banks in the game, it's this one.
