"On Fire" is a 2004 hit single from Lloyd Banks' debut album, The Hunger for More. It quickly became a nationwide hit and cemented Lloyd Banks' name in the Hip Hop scene. The single peaked inside the top ten in the U.S., reaching #8. The song samples "The Champ", performed by The Mohawks.

Background[edit]

The chorus contains vocals by 50 Cent, though he is uncredited. The single peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold by the RIAA. The song was produced by Eminem and Kwamé.

The song was featured in the movie Fantastic Four, in the scene where the Human Torch revealed his Fantastic Four outfit to the audience at a motorcycle competition.

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Jessy Terrero, features Lloyd Banks rapping on the roof of a small building that is on top of a large hotel building. The video contains cameos by fellow G-Unit members 50 Cent, Young Buck and Game, as well as G-Unit artist Olivia. At the end of the video, 50 Cent is seen breaking through glass and the song changes to the chorus and the first verse of the song Warrior, which is also from Lloyd Bank's debut album The Hunger for More.
