Bacardi Mojito has launched a "Music Cafe" artist series with G-Unit
rapper Lloyd Banks, which will travel to seven major cities in
the United States this fall. The invite-only event takes place tonight (Oct. 9)
at an undisclosed location in New York, where Banks will preview his upcoming
release, Rotten Apple. Banks, 24, will also conduct a Q&A session in the Bacardi
Mojito Media Lounge.
“I’m blessed to be here with another opportunity to put out another album,”
Banks said. “I just want the people to grow with me. At the end of the
day, the album is worth the wait. I’m guaranteeing you now it’s gonna
be better than any album that came out in 2006 – without a doubt.” Banks’
debut album The Hunger For More sold 4 million copies worldwide and debuted
at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart upon its July 2004 release.
The Bacardi Mojito/G-Unit star-studded event takes place on the eve of the
release of Banks’ highly anticipated sophomore album, Rotten Apple. “Working
with Bacardi is the perfect scenario for a brand like G-Unit," said Banks’
co-manager and G-Unit’s co-founder Sha Money XL. "Both brands, the Bacardi
Mojito and Banks are what’s hot in the streets right now.”
Other dates on Bacardi Mojito’s "Music Cafe" will be announced at
a later date.
