“For the heaters for whatever it’s worth / I wish ‘em well, I was sick Kobe died, laughed when Oprah fell,” he kicks off the freestyle, which clearly gets the Funk Flex approval. “N****s is damn near dead corny you know them stepping over old friends in 40 below Timbs / 50 men entourages with no grins, everything but a rocket launcher the rose grim.”
Banks’ latest freestyle, which is far from his first for Funk Flex, comes less than a month after he dropped off his latest project. The Course of the Inevitable 2 serves as a followup to its 2021 predecessor, and is his fifth solo album overall. The record features a number of hip-hop heavyweights, including Jadakiss, Dave East, Benny The Butcher, Vado, and his former G-Unit bandmate Tony Yayo.
In an interview with Complex last month, Banks explained what led him to the creation of the two records. “[The Course of the Inevitable] comes from determination, and all of the things that I had in me before my first record deal,” he said. “When you don’t know what to do next, you’ve got to go backwards and remember what you’re doing it for. You’ve got to remember what it felt like before you made any type of money. Then you reflect on where you were at the time—the obstacles, the trials, and tribulations. What I realized is consistency is the key to all success.”
