Christopher Charles Lloyd (born 30 April 1982), better known by his stage name Lloyd Banks, is an American rapper from Queens, New York. Raised in the South Jamaica section of Quens, he dropped out of high school in 1998 and formed the group G-Unit the following year alongside childhood friends and rappers 50 Cent and Tony Yayo. Banks released his solo debut album, The Hunger for More, in 2004, which was a commercial success and sold 500,500 copies in its first week. When his planned second album The Big Withdraw was leaked to the Internet, he cancelled it and instead recorded Rotten Apple, which was released in 2006 and became another commercial success.

G-Unit left their distribution deal with Interscope Records in 2009, so Banks' third album, H.F.M. (The Hunger for More) 2, was released through G-Unit Records and EMI. The album was reportedly under-shipped, resulting in little first-week sales. It received mixed to positive reviews.
