  • Summary: This is the solo debut for Banks, a member of G Unit.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. While it's not better than 50's national debut or G-Unit's album, it's certainly no worse.
  2. The Hunger for More is another solid release from the crew and is a couple steps down from 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin' and a step above G-Unit's Beg for Mercy.
  3. An assured debut that scores as much for what it doesn't do as it does for its low-key, insidious rhymes and chrome-gleaming rhythmical clatter. [24 Jul 2004, p.49]
  4. The one thing Banks lacks is Fiddy's natural charisma--he's also about eight bulletholes short in the "life-experience department."
  5. Though not one of the songs on the album stands out in terms of head-popping new production -- there's not a hit that will transcend the hip-hop hard-core -- each cut is utterly bulletproof, and Banks' lyrics provide a few new twists. [18 Jul 2004]
  6. 60
    While Banks's wicked wordplay is impressive, his one-liners get him only so far. [Jun/Jul 2004, p.134]
  7. Banks lacks 50's humor, vocal playfulness, and stone-cold articulation.

    By far the best rapper on G-Unit. This album is an instant Classic with the right guests and lyrics. Lloyd Banks changed the game alot since 2005 and he will keep doing it until he is dead. Lloyd Banks is onlly one of the few people who are going to bring Hip-hop bank Expand
