The Hunger for More is the commercial debut album by rapper Lloyd Banks.


The singles from this album include "On Fire", "I'm So Fly", and "Karma". Features on this album include 50 Cent, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Avant, and former G-Unit member The Game.

During the first week of The Hunger For More's release, a distribution house in Manhattan was robbed of approximately eight boxes of the CDs (200 copies). A New York record store had nearly 100 copies of the CD stolen from its racks by a single perpetrator on the album's first day in stores, though they were later recovered.[1]


During an interview Lloyd Banks explained the reason behind naming the album. He said:

When I say The Hunger for More, it could be referring to more success. It could be more money. Or Respect. More power. More understanding. All those things lead up to that hunger for more, because my more isn't everybody else's more. I feel like I made it already, because I got already what everybody on the corners of the neighborhood I grew up in is striving to get.[2]

Sales and Certifications

It was released in 2004 and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 charts with 433,000 copies sold in the first week. The album has since sold over two million copies worldwide and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.[3][4]
