Extracts from this document...

Introduction

AS COMMUNICATIONS- SEPTEMBER BREAK ASSIGNMENT Lloyd Banks- The Hunger For More The way 'Lloyd Banks' is written, is purposely intended to replicate the American dollar if not a pile of American dollars, hence the use of the colour green and the way the American dollar sign is replacing the 'S' at the end of 'Banks'.
