If you’re looking for a rapper that can mix references to pop culture, street life with a sprinkle of anime then ladies and gentlemen you have yourself a Robb Bank$. Born in Brooklyn, New York Bank$ has lived in Florida since he was 6. Cultivating his style and notoriety since he was 16.
As the internet made it easier for artists to directly reach their fans, Bank$ dropped the project “Calendars” in 2012 that would place it in the spotlight with other internet rappers like Odd Future and Danny Brown. Bank$ took 3 years after announcing the title of his first Album “Year of the Savage” to release it. In a interview Bank$ said he “can’t finish until he knows it’s finished” showing the amount care and patience he had for his first Album. Bank$ took to Twitter earlier this year dropping the title of his second Album “Falconia” would be released before 2017 is over.
This isn’t the first time Robb Bank$ has touched down in Minneapolis. He was here last year on the Death of My Teenager tour with Wifisfuneral, and Ski Mask the Slump God. That show sold out and I almost didn’t get in. This show was nothing less than I expected with fans shouting till their lungs ran out of air. The second Bank$ took the stage he broke into nothing but bangers such as “Pressure” and “Double Up” to keep the crowd at full attention. At one point Bank$ jumped onto the barrier between himself and the crowd. With the lights being off and the only thing Illuminating his face being cell phone lights you could see the glisten from his Diamond Grill as clear as day. He ended the show by actually hopping that same barricade to jump in the crowd to make his exit.
Robb Bank$ is definitely not an underdog with over 7 years under his belt, multiple tours and sold out shows. He has had major labels offers threw out his career yet has stayed the independent route. Taking the full helm of his career lets hope he doesn’t forget to steer Minnesota’s way for his next tour.
