Lloyd Banks enjoyed their 2002 mixtape run
It’s been 20 years since G-Unit had their iconic mixtape run. In a recent interview with Rap Radar Podcast, Lloyd Banks revealed that 2002 was his favorite year when they dropped the mixtapes: 50 Cent Is The Future, No Mercy No Fear, and God’s Plan.
“That was I can honestly say probably my favorite year,” Banks began. “Even more than my solo album. ‘Cause going into that time, like I said [it started] from sitting in the house literally 8 o’clock at night to six in the morning just talking. Just talking about how it’s going to be. What they expect, you know what I mean? Like really preparing for this shit.”
He added: “We would like to say we were like gearing up for the long run, but that’d be a lie. N-ggas was talking about how to be like a tornado. Like not, ‘Hey we from over here,’ like a tornado. Everything stopped … That type of energy, that urgency.”
