"It's a good thing to be back around and see a lot of your peers, and I'm actually going to call a few of them and try and get 'em into the studio to close the album out," he said.
So far, Banks has brought in his G-Unit family — 50 Cent, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, Mobb Deep and Spider Loc — as well as Timbaland, Scarface, 8Ball, Rakim and, most recently, Musiq (Soulchild).
"It ain't too many, but the ones I got on board are awesome," Banks said.

"I don't stop recording until they tell me I can't — 'cause some of your best records come at crunch time," said Banks, who is still adding material to Rotten Apple, due September 19.
