"Rotten Apple" is the second album by G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks. It was released on October 10 2006 and sold 143,000 copies in its first week. [ [ Rotten Apple Sales, 1st Week U.S.] . UrbanConnects. Accessed July 31 2007] It debuted at number three on the "Billboard" 200. The title of the album is a play on the New York City nickname "Big Apple".


The album featured guest appearances from 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, Scarface, Mobb Deep, 8 Ball, Rakim, Keri Hilson, and Musiq Soulchild. Production was provided by Eminem, Needlz, Sha Money XL, Younglord, Ron Browz, Havoc and 9th Wonder. Banks also wanted to show the darker side of New York City, and allow listeners to hear what it was like growing up in South Jamaica, Queens.


The album received mixed reviews. [ [ Lloyd Banks: Rotten Apple (2006): Reviews] . Metacritic. Accessed May 29 2008.] "Rolling Stone"'s Evan Serpick gave it 3 out of 5 stars and said that "Eminem, Mobb Deep’s Havoc and a host of G-Unit regulars produce an album’s worth of chunky, ominous beats to fit Banks’ foul mood, but it runs a little thin over sixteen tracks".

But "XXL" gave it a L/XXL and said "Not falling far from 50 Cent’s platinum-rooted tree, Rotten Apple is fertilized with potent doses of sonic strength and catchy hooks. But overall, it isn’t the new massacre that'll shake New York hip-hop down to its core." Also Allmusic's David Jeffries gave it 2.5 out of 5 stars and said that "The highlights are way high, but the album as a whole is fans-only."


"Rotten Apple" has sold 341,000 copies in the U.S. [Samuel, Anslem (May 2008). [ Drop] . "XXL" magazine, p. 73.] [Kondo, Toshitaka (June 13 2007). [ Stormy Weather] . "Vibe". Accessed August 23 2007.] On November 11 2006, the Canadian Recording Industry Association certified it gold in Canada. [ [ CRIA Search Certification Database - "Lloyd Banks"] .
