The Thursday HIT (Honored In Time): Victory Freestyle - Lloyd Bank$
This is arguably the greatest freestyle ever recorded, also one of the first few joints I heard from Banks that solidified him as my favorite rapper.
My introduction to his music came from my big bro as we watched 50's Wanksta video. He says to me, pointing at Banks in the background, "That dude right there can RAP". First thing that comes to mind is "how the hell does he know that and I don't even know who this dude is?" because at this time I'm up on everything, so I thought. My bro didn't just stamp anybody, so I decided to check him out.
That was the day I burned an entire CD, yes CD, of Lloyd Banks tracks and went to school feeling like I just found a kilo. Since then the PLK has been my favorite rapper of all time, so revisit this classic with me.
