  1. This is one of those albums to throw on and leave on while you accomplish something: it won't demand too much of your attention, but none of it will bore you.

    At 13 tracks the album feels right-sized, not overstuffed, and Banks himself is in fine form throughout, delivering stone cold and slow punch lines that are as lethal as ever. When it comes to evolution, there's really none, but even though he's been here before, veteran fans will appreciate his return.

    On his third solo effort, the G-Unit rapper is a connoisseur of cars, women, and guns, spinning tight spider webs of syllables that are often so patterned that they obscure individual strands.

    The execution isn't as good the second time around, but Banks has reestablished his sound, and made clear that he is still a major force to be reckoned with in the Rap game.

    Artists who put out album sequels are often criticized for trying to capitalize on a classic work. No one will accuse G-Unit lieutenant Lloyd Banks of that with the second instalment of his uneven debut.

    True, he lacks bandmate 50 Cent's raw charisma. But his leisurely delivery carries weight. [Mar 2011, p.101]

    Hunger for More 2 is probably hard to take as an album that barely meets if not underperforms on expectations.

    This album is pretty sick, haven't stopped playing it since i got it. Way better then his last album and the OK 65 metacritic gave it. All theThis album is pretty sick, haven't stopped playing it since i got it. Way better then his last album and the OK 65 metacritic gave it. All the songs on the album are listenable straight through. The 2 FYE bonus tracks are pretty good too but wish the 2 ITunes ones were on the CD but what can you do. Father Time and Sooner or Later are probably the best tracks. Even Tony Yayo stepped up his game on Take'em to War. None of the Guest really out Shine Banks so he managed to have the best verses on all of songs. I Recommend this to anyone who likes Non-Commercial Hip hop artist who don't sell out of the mainstream Expand
