Monday, Oct 4, 2010 4:20PM
G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks has confirmed Kanye West will be featured on his forthcoming Hunger For More 2 album and revealed the title of their collaboration.
In addition to the West song, Banks also discussed the record he has with The Clipse's Pusha T.
"I'm excited," he says of the upcoming project, which has already spawned the gold single "Beamer, Benz or Bentley." "I put a lot of thinking into this project. Every verse on my album that I got for a feature is crazy. The Kanye West joint 'Trackstar' is crazy. The song actually features me, Kanye, Swizz Beatz and Fabolous. I got Pusha T on a song called 'Home Sweet Home.' He's very underrated; Pusha has been doing it for so long that he's in a similar space as me. Everybody knows the Clipse as legendary rappers. Now he's beginning a new legacy with his solo career. And I'm doing the same thing." (VIBE)
A few days ago, Banks was featured on West's G.O.O.D. Friday track, "Christian Dior Denim Flow."
Welcome to another very dope G.O.O.D Friday...Hey we know its Saturday but for the sake of G.O.O.D Music any day can be a Friday. After a few leaks it seemed that we weren't going to get our fix of new Yeezy this week, but Mr West pulled it of the bag this week, linking up with his fellow G.O.O.D Music labelmates KiD CuDi, John Legend & Pusha T as well as G-Unit's Lloyd Banks alongside singer/producer Ryan Leslie for "Christian Dior Denim Flow".

Banks also recently revealed that West was planning to unite him and Nas on a record.
Lloyd Banks came up to the XXL offices this afternoon as the latest guest on our weekly Wednesday UStream show, Spotlight, and during the engaging interview he spoke on the possibility of he and 50 Cent rival Nas appearing together on one of Kanye West's upcoming G.O.O.D. Friday tracks. Banks said that he was in the studio with our October cover star two nights ago, along with John Legend and Kid Cudi and worked on two cuts--one for The Hunger for More 2 and one for 'Ye's upcoming, still unnamed LP. "The record I had did for Kanye, he was saying he was putting Nas on it, so you may be seeing that in the future," The Punchline King told XXLMag.com. (XXL Mag)
As of late, West has been seen publicly accolading Banks' emcee skills.
"Yo man Loyd Banks prolly the most underrated MC in the game... Man he deserve to be top 5 at least!," West tweeted Wednesday (September 8) night. (Kanye West's Twitter)
