H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger for More 2)

Lloyd Banks gets pensive on the cover for his third solo joint H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger for More 2). Leaning against a light pole on the street, the G-Unit member rocks a backwards fitted, leather jacket, and navy blue tee, looking away from the camera. The LP, which features the singles “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley” and the Lloyd-assisted “Any Girl,” arrives November 23.

Drake, Lloyd Banks, & Jazmine Sullivan Get Hyphy in the Bay

Drake

Though he was noticeably absent from the second night of Jay-Z and Eminem’s recent Detroit double-bill, Drake had good reason. The Toronto native headed over to Oakland, Calif., to headline KMEL’s Summer Jam 2010 at Oracle Arena on Saturday (Sept. 4), where he shared the stage with fellow performers Jazmine Sullivan, E-40, Lloyd Banks, Miguel, and more.

Rocking a varsity jacket, cargo pants, and shades, Drizzy showed Cali love by performing hits from his discography, removing his jacket near the end of his set and shouting “Free Weezy!”

Bay Area legend E-40 repped for his Sick Wid It Records imprint, donning a glittery chain that hung over his black tee, while a gorgeous Jazmine Sullivan sang her heart out during her set, looking sharp in a cropped teal jacket, shiny shirt, and ragged jeans.

Lloyd Banks added some NYC flavor to the lineup, taking the stage after newcomers Miguel, Dorrough, Bobby Brackins, YG, and R.O.D. Project warmed up the crowd. Summer may be nearing its end, but check the photos below to see how this group of performers heated things up.
