Lloyd Banks: PLK, The Fortune Not the Fame

Lloyd Banks: PLK, The Fortune Not The Fame

I was going to write an intro to this Lloyd Banks playlist that I’ve curated. But frankly, I feel that none of my own words could do justice to this man’s music. Instead, I’ve selected this verse out of “Failure’s No Option”:

Everybody want the light, I’m like fine you can have this
The top don’t mean you’re living right, keep your mind on what matters
These hoes don’t love you, they rehearsin’ all kind of theatrics
Supposed to build each other up but most time it be backwards
Until then we got to wait and pray until they finally catch us
Toe tags, no dads in a county of bastards
Going to need a cape to see our future
You blind and need glasses?
Ten, twenty years rewinding these classics
Let’s toast to living our vision
Love the sound of these glasses
Envious bastards off the axis, mahogany caskets
The blocks banging if you survive these harmony flashes
No free passes, just regrets and R.I.P ad-libs
Dearly departed, keep me guarded and all that we ask is
Put a good word in while we hurting and dodging these crashes
And, my position is go hard or get missing
It’s like dope and I’m running, the other part of me twitching

You know how subtracting can end up to adding a lot more? With no TV in boarding school and a close friend working at a CD store, you bet Yoshi's already huge appetite for music was bound to grow beyond bounds. From there it's felt like feeding a stomach with no limits. Now Yoshi eats, speaks, drinks and sleeps music... If you catch one of the rare sightings of the Wraith you will notice his speech is made of lyrics, punchlines, bars, hooks and humming. And if you get to understand this unique language then who knows what type of universe you might discover beyond the music! Yoshi is one, Wraith is all... Don't forget the Wraith
