Review: Lloyd Banks leaves Edmonton crowd wanting more at the YEG Event Centre


Edmonton, AB – Short and sweet. Perhaps those are the best words to describe Lloyd Banks’ set at Edmonton’s YEG Event Centre on Wednesday, Dec. 2, presented by G. Baki and Hitman.

Early birds were treated to performances by local talents DCTMG, Higher Learnin’, Drezus (featuring K-Riz), Ms. Teaze, Le Seul and Evrlove Blake. Each artist came through, giving their best effort to liven the mood and hype the crowd up for the closing act. By the time Lloyd was ready, everyone else was as well.

The South Jamaica, Queens MC performed a few of his notable hits such as “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” and “I’m So Fly.” By 1:38 a.m. (don’t ask how I can be so exact) the crowd was “On Fire”, pun intended. However, the excitement was short lived. I got a chance to speak with a few people in attendance and the general consensus was that Lloyd’s set was not long enough.
