Long-time G-Unit member Lloyd Banks recently spoke about the status of Gangsta rap, the style most associated with groups like NWA andthe Geto Boys, and how he feels the rap style will never go away.
"I don't think gangsta rap could ever be done or finished. When you ask yourself 'what's gangsta'? To me being gangsta is being responsible for your actions. Being a stand-up dude or girl, and don't compromise for anything. Somebody who don't bend, someone who does what they want to do. Hip-Hop comes from the street. I think that will never go away. There's always going to be somebody with bad luck, who inspires to be better, to be from poverty, somebody who knows what it feels like to hurt and as long as that's there and everything ain't good."
