When 50 Cent fails to find a big single (hell, even a release date) for his fifth solo album, you know his G-Unit cronies are hardly going to be flourishing. Lloyd Banks announced a new mixtape, 'All or Nothing Vol. 1: Failure's No Option,' back in January, but has since scrapped and re-recorded the entire thing.

Well, that decision has clearly paid off.

Following a couple of lacklustre previews, Banks does right by himself and the city of New York by linking up with Raekwon for a gritty street rap banger. The punching drums and sprinkling keys of Ryan Alexy set the scene for the G-Unit and Wu-Tang generals to drop those gems.

"I'm back to shining with my movie n---a/ Know they've been waiting, time to deliver." And deliver you did, Lloyd.
