LLOYD BANKS by MicahJGunnell LLOYD BANKS by MicahJGunnell
GUACHE on watercolor paper. did this in one of my classes at the kubert school. its lloyd banks, from g-unit. he is the king of punchlines. the assignment was to use an analagous color scheme(4 or 5 consecutive colors on the color wheel). and for those that hate on the unit, fuck yall! just kidding:) i like "conscious" rap too, so relax! talib kweli is my favorite rapper, and i love tribe called quest and de la soul. i like gangsta rap though too. as long as its real and the rhymes are tight, i'm feelin it.

I had no idea that was Lloyd Banks, at first I thought it was Tupac, stupid on my part :stupid:, then again, rappers all look the same to me.

Yeah, this is Banks. I used to like him alot...I still think he's a pretty good lyricist, but the stuff he talks about is completely mindless.

that's what I think about "a good majority" of rap music in general. But I have to admit, some of that stuff is catchy as hell

Banks IS G-Unit. I know some might say...well...fuck what they might say. "Look dawg, I don't run with the poddles // Difference is, I'm eatin' in Rome, and you eatin' Ramen noodles" And one of my personal favorites...(actually kind of a lame line, but I can relate, so it makes it dope) "It's easy when her boyfriend is a scrub like Brillo // Cause Banks is cooler than the other side of the pillow" That pillow line...hell yeah...or "...where they do the bank-head-bounce // And you can come, but after you give Banks head, bounce".............ANYWAY, ill-ustration perfection...I love this...it's gorgeous...nicely matches it's real life counterpart as well, with a hip-hop flare (such as in the edges of his smoke)...nice stuff...let's just hope half-a-dolla don't RUIN Shady/Aftermath/Gunit...which he will...*sigh*

Right on, this is bad ass.

How do you like the Kubert School? I went and checked it out a couple of months ago and it seems pretty dope. The only thing that I don't really care for is the location, very expensive place to live. I'm also looking into the Art Institute in Chicago and I really can't decide what would be better.

Any how, I can't believe you like that gangster shit, just kidding. Some time people get stuck on just one part of Hiphop and be like "I only listen to underground" or whatever. Me, I only listen to the artists that I feel are dope. That can be anywhere from underground to commercial to concious to gangster...

Anyway, awesome picture

I really like the thick outlines on this. And the semi-cell-shaded feel. Really makes me think of graffiti styles, which seems rather appropriate. And the smoke coming out of his mouth is perfect. Nice work. =)

Have I told you lately how much I loathe you? ;)

Again, you have to start posting work, that without fail, drives me insane with envy and jealousy. If I go to hell for those deadly sins, Im blaming you ;)

This is again, as always completely top notch, and absolutely amazing.

Incredible work man :)
