New Music: Lloyd Banks Ft. Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, Ryan Leslie & Fabolous “Start It Up”

Funkmaster Flex got the green light to premiere Banks’ new posse cut on Hot 97. Apparently, he changed the name from “Trackstar” to “Start It Up”. But it’s the music that counts, and from the sound of it, Hunger For More 2 is shaping up to be a full course meal. Album drops November 23rd.

UPDATE:  Dirty version it up

  • Remi

    2 disappointing things about this song

    1 – Swizz
    2 – It means no song with just Kanye and Banks

    Overall, it is what I expected it to be. Something I’ll have on repeat for at least 3 months. Dope track.

  • Citylivin’

    y’all betta not say shit else about Rick Ross and his features anymore #thatsall

  • Big Meats

  • ESCO

    for the sake of hip hop, i hope banks sells more than nicki.

    sales don’t mean shit to me, and i promised myself i would never even look at sales figures, but i couldn’t accept it if a gimmick like nicki beats banks who’s worked so hard to get back into the spotlight.

    Lloyd banks still hasn’t surprised me shit all sounds like singlesand not once has he had the best verse on his OWN song LOL someone always has to save it for him

    Pink Friday>>>>>>>>>> Hunger For Whores 2

  • http://jhuntdaprodigy.tumblr.com J-hunt da Prodigy

    This track dope as hell, Swizz doesn’t annoy me that much this time around, but imagine how epic that hook would’ve been if they had just let Ryan Leslie sing on it…oh well! Kanye ripped this beat, I don’t understand how anyone could say Fab was bad, he snapped on this joint. Banks did his thing, copping HFM2 & BDTF both when they drop next month

  • RECOVERY

    For the sake of hiphop, I hope Swizz beats retires. Pretty dope tho.

    HFM2 Nov 23rd!!!!! I’m coppin that shit, support tha PLK!

  • RECOVERY

    I can’t believe Swizz actually delivered somethin that wasn’t wack.

    Banks = PLK.

  • gosh mctosh fuckoff

    Yall hate so much. It is insane. 88% of the comments yall knit picking at this great overall song. This is art, not math. Don’t no precision go into this shit. Its art so its pure. They don’t got no fucking checklist on how to make the perfect song. You all are pathetic pussies just sittin here every day & visit this site like some fanatics.

    I visit this shit like probably once every 2 days & i actually be seeing niggas treatin’ this shit like its facebook, fuckin fags. Pussy ass niggas that can only hate like some gossiping bitches. Get yall money up & stop hatin’ on the next nigga that got his

  • Word

    @SayAhh

    Lmao. Niggas around my way would clown me if I ever advocated something called “Pink Friday”. You down for “Teal Tuesdays” and “Sapphire Saturdays” as well?

  • ESCO

    @Word….word.

    Anyone looking forward to Pink Friday more than HFM2 is contributing to the disease that is infecting Hip Hop right now, so it doesn’t surpirse me that sayAhh is one of those people. The guys the stupidest cunt here along with ZoomZoom.

  • thisisravenstwn

    HFM2. I better hear this on the radio non stop

  • oscar

    it probably much on general radio at all. the key here is for EMI to promote this, for Beamer benz or bentley Banks was independent so there was 0 promotion really but now that he’s on a label and has an absolute banger it has to be promoted by EMI.

    At this point, we’ve seen NOTHING from Emi regarding Banks, it’s all Banks’ hype himself so far. EMIi better step up.

  • original will

    banks right now is doing at least 130-150 k 1st week

    I seen a interview with him on Sohh and he made me think about a good point where in the fucc is Game album remember shit was suppose to come out 8/24/10 for Kobe bryant after that bullshit justin timberlake song he has been real MIA

    yea Jimmy shot himself in the foot with this one so he tries to gain some respect bacc by trying to sign Dipset they talking about LA Reid getting that boot Jimmy has made a couple of bad decisions himself like what was the last interscope rap release Eminem and what was the last one before Eminem lets try Eminem again LOL he signed Diddy Group and Game who have had pushbaccs for almost years Now like where in the fucc is Yung LA album wasnt Pretty Boy Swag good enough to get soulja boy a release Rich Boy where are these artist

    Banks is killing shit and he practically did it for a while with no label baccing he got his Boss enemies wanting to get on traccs with him I mean Come on Nas a couple of yrs ago was on that Same G-Unot campaign was on Im talking the Nigger Years now he featured on Banks album

    its just goes to show what hard work gets you not trying to promote video game competitions and other artist who dont endorse you(Game) twittering bout laker games and the new 2k and iphone shit nigga trying tweeting us some quality music instead of taking pics with dr.dre like a stan why dont you get him to put his old ass arthiritis hands on the board to produce a good song for you

  • still best rite now!!

    Hot as fk!! Swizz be holding back on beats for some artist i guess? lol Banks got a nice one tho

    Looks like imma be copping a few disc this holiday season

  • Lu

    It looks like hiphop is back…Good music all round… Looking forward to HFM2 and MM4…

  • WindyCityG

    STOP HATIN ON SWIZZ , TRACK IS A BANGER!

  • JOeyzz

    Banks we ready for HFM2

  • Karim

    INTERSCOPE lost out big time releasing Banks. What the fuck were they thinking seriously? He’d be in their top 5 artists if he was there right now, after the likes of Gaga, Eminem, 50 Cent, Black Eyed Peas…..no one else there is doing anything significant, especially rappers like Wale, Game, Diddy, Soulja Boy etc.

    I like that Banks told them to fuck off after they wanted him back.

    as for the song, 8/10. best club song of the year.

  • lfa328

    this is soo freaking beastt!!!!!!!!!
    i’m pumped for when this cd drops

  • Karim

    look at what Interscope supposed to release this year

    # JoJo – All I Want Is Everything – SHELVED. NOT ENOUGH BUZZ. NO RELEASE DATE.
    # Dr. Dre – Detox (Aftermath/Interscope) – ON HOLD.
    # Keke Palmer – TBA (Interscope) – SHELVED. STILL NO RELEASE DATE.
    # Eminem – Recovery (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) – SUCCESS
    # Bishop Lamont – God Damn N!gga,(Aftermath/Interscope) – DROPPED
    # Game – The R.E.D. Album Interscope) – SHELVED. NO RELEASE DATE
    # Soulja Boy Tell’em – Dre (Stacks On Deck Ent./HHH/Collipark/Interscope) – COMING OUT SOON. NO HYPE OVER SINGLES YET.
    # M.I.A. – Maya (XL/Interscope) – GOOD ALBUM BUT FLOPPED HARD.

    That’s as big as failure as Def Jam, if not more considering the Pop artists they have here.

    Other than Gaga and Black Eyed Peas which are for simpleton teenagers, no one at Interscope is doing anything of note other than Eminem and 50 Cent. And these idiots dropped Banks and weren’t jumping at renewing 50′s contract?

    YO JIMMY IOVINE. HANG YOURSELF IDIOT.

  • Ac@pella!

  • Harlemite

    Fire stop hating everyone is a critic

  • teejay

    Really, does anyone like swizz beats? His beats are repetative and annoying, his voice sucks and his rapping’s worse.

    Banks so comfortable right now; nothing sounds forced; I like the track.

  • Emoney

    I agree swizz beat kind of fucked up the song( still a good producer none the less) but kanye and Fabolous resurrected this track…. I cant wait to HFM2….I know its going to be bananas….GUNIT all day. And Honestly speaking between Banks, Kanye, and Nikki, banks has been the most consistant with the hits thus far. Nikki songz are becoming to vallygirl for the kid
