Dre didn't give him no beats bcuz he knew he was a boring a.ss punchline rapper with no appeal outside of New York.
His first album sold decent off the strength of his alliance with 50, not to mention his biggest hit from that album featured....50. LOL. Dre already knew this guy was mediocre so he wasn't tryna waste his sh*t.
Banks had a HUGE buzz and was mixtape artist of the year 2 years in a row. Compared to Game who was on Aftermath for years and no one cared. If Game wasnt from compton, Lloyd Banks would have his career right now.
Even the whiteboy Eminem has always said banks was one of his favorite rappers, how come Em always does songs with Banks but never Game hmmm....
