For those who don't know by now, Lloyd Banks retired from hip-hop in March 2018. The former G-Unit rapper felt it was time for him to throw in the towel to what he fell in love with 27 years ago while a fan asked him on twitter the year after if he could bless his fans with one last album and Banks replied by saying, no one is checking on him anymore. Banks did bless us in 2004 with his first album The Hunger For More in 2004 which was a commercial success but what about his other albums and mixtapes? Except for his die-hard fans, I feel that Lloyd Banks discography and career are rarely discussed in hip-hop debates, which is why for this throwback review, I decided to review Banks second album Rotten Apple which was released on October 10th, 2006 under G-Unit and Interscope records. Also, the album was originally named The Big Withdrawal and it was done in 2005 but the album got leaked because Lloyd Banks left an unmastered copy in the home of two ladies where Banks had a ménage a trois with. This led Banks to scrapped the album and he began to start working on Rotten Apple. The album features 50 Cent, Mobb Deep, Tony Yayo, Rakim, Young Buck, Keri Hilson, Scarface and, others.
