Lloyd Banks Net Worth $10 Million
Christopher Lloyd was born on April 30, 1982, in New Carrolton, Maryland, United States. However, soon after his birth his parents moved to Queens in NY, where Lloyd spent his childhood. Christopher, together with his two siblings, was raised almost alone by their mother as Gang Green’s father was in jail. But the life of a teenager was not so easy for Lloyd – he could not finish his studies in the August Martin High School.
Lloyd started his career as a musician in 2003, when as album entitled “Beg for Mercy” was released. It was an album released together with other rappers – Young Buck, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo. But the first album released by Banks’s alone was in year 2004. Then Christopher’s net worth increased as the new album “The Hunger for More” definitely could be considered as extremely successful. It was certified platinum by RIAA and MC, and furthermore, certified Silver by BPI. “The Hunger for More” hit number 1 not only on the US R&B chart, but also on the US global chart. It also achieved second place in Canada and became known in Europe.
This was the second serious investment in the net worth for Lloyd Banks. So now you can better understand how rich is Lloyd, and it was only the beginning of his successful career. But talking about his future career in music, unfortunately, we have to admit that the first album also was the last one which was so amazingly successful. “Rotten Apple” released two years later still took the first place on the US R&B chart, but now it was only third on the global chart in US. And the most recent one, “The Hunger for More 2”, also called “H. F. M. 2”, was one more disappointment. Not only it did not achieve any place on European charts, but also took only 26th place on the US charts. However, “Hunger for More 2” was still able to increase the net worth which was build up by C. Lloyd.
Of course, during his career Lloyd was able to increase his net worth also because he has released many singles, but the most successful of them were two: “On Fire” and “You Don’t Know”. And this is the reason why today Christopher’s net worth is so huge after all the efforts he has made to become such a great musician.

|1||Known for his usage of metaphors throughout songs|
|1||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. God forbid anything happen to me, my family is straight. So anything that happens after this is just me progressing as a person.|
