[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lloyd Banks[/lastfm] has delayed his latest mixtape release for the last time and he is ready to shop around for a new label deal too. But he plans to keep working on new music despite not having a deal.
According to HiphopDX.com:
Lloyd Banks previously cancelled his mixtape Cold Corner 2, but had a change of heart back in August. Now, the G-Unit member explains that the tape will arrive in the next two weeks and that he’s already got 18 to 20 tracks recorded for the follow-up to H.F.M. 2 (Hunger For More 2).
“I got a couple mixtapes done. I had the Cold Corner done for a second, but I just put it off because I could. I needed more time to work on everything else,” he said while at MTV’s RapFix Live yesterday.
“I didn’t want to keep giving them a day and day and pushing it back like it’s an album. It’s a mixtape at the end of the day. [...] It’ll be the best mixtape, hands down, that comes out this year. It’ll be coming out within two weeks, Cold Corner 2, definitely.”
He also updated on his next studio album, stating that he has fulfilled his contract with EMI and looking for a new label home.
“Right now, I’m between situations now. I completed my situation with EMI, and going right back to the drawing board. I been working just constantly, making music for my mixtape series and at the same time for my next album. So I’m about 18 or 20 records into my next album already.”
Even though he is still part of G-Unit, he is on his own when it comes down to getting another deal done. You would think that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]50 Cent[/lastfm] would help him out? Uummm…No!
