banks_raekwon_drop a diamond

After a brief hiatus, which included scrapping his new project in order to re-do the whole thing, Lloyd Banks is finally back with some new heat. With the Chef’s assistance and Ryan Alexy on the 1s and 2s, Banks cooks up some audio dope with ‘Drop A Diamond’. This new banger will be featured on the aforementioned project All Or Nothing Vol 1: Failure’s No Option hosted by DJ Drama.

While he’s still dealing with his issues with 50, the PLK is doing his best to stay relevant by not only prepping this new project, but also by performing random shows all over the place. Now that he has a third release out from A.O.N.|F.N.O.(listen to the first one here and the second one here), maybe the full thing is finally on the way. Did the PLK do us justice with ‘Drop A Diamond’? Let us know after the break.

    Quality over quantity any day.
    He still needs to focus his rhymes conceptually.

    What exactly is he rhyming about in this track?

    It’s a bunch of bars with a dope flow over decent production. In verse 1 he goes from being at a party, street reflections, vixens he’s pocketed, his weed habits, back to being on the street, and addressing critics

    I like it as it feels like I’m being dropped into different memories casually linked by word association but it also comes off as a huge flaw.

    I wish a full version of 80s Baby drops at some point
