Brooklyn lyricist D Banga has seen a positive response on the College charts with his single Shorty, produced by ‘Philly’ Cash. The song, which currently sits in the top ten on the Rap Network Chart and at number 12 on the Rap Attack Chart, is a strong introduction to the fledgling lyricist and a mere taste of what is to come.
Gaining attention from the likes of AllHipHop.com, Rapreviews.com and the NYC based online mag, BirthplaceMag.com, D Banga and his team are making all the right moves to solidify his presence on the Hip-Hop timeline. His mantra at making songs to help people eradicate the tribulations of daily life is what sets him apart from his contemporaries.
Having lived the street life, this MC has opted not to advocate it in his rhymes. D Banga wants his followers to understand that he is about enjoying life and not dwelling on misfortune and negativity. Linking with Justo award winning and former XM DJ, Furious Styles will see the Brownsville native release a new mixtape for free download later this spring.
“I feel this opportunity to allow people to hear an entire project from me will make everyone understand that I am not just a ‘hot single’ rapper,” D Banga explains. “Coming from NYC there is always pressure on MCs to deliver and I thrive on that, even though we are seeing Shorty do well on the charts, this isn’t a time for me to sit back and be all complacent about it, I am just grinding in the studio to make sure I have more product to feed to the streets and the fans.”
Resilient to the politics of the music industry, D Banga is keen to show people that he is in this for the long haul regardless of the issues an up and coming artist might face. While working on a video to accompany the summer smash, Put Your Hands Up, will allow fans to experience the visual aspect of D Banga he is also setting up various performances around the tri-state area over the up and coming months to give fans of Hip-Hop the opportunity to see him perform live.
“I was a fan of Malkovich the first time I heard him,” says world-famous DJ, musical collaborator with the late, great J Dilla and Detroit rap ambassador House Shoes. “This is the first of many collaborations we will be doing. Yall know I do NOT F**K AROUND with my cosigns. After listening you will understand why he is getting the green light.” King Tech of the World Famous Wake Up Show says “Malkovich is a super duper greasy middle easty emcee. His ego/attitude to rip the mic comes through every time he comes on our show. He loves this culture with a passion unlike most and has a make it or bust attitude with no quitting in sight.” On Ayatollah Presley he raps about his Hurricane Katrina experience, Iran’s Green Revolution and even dedicates a song to the late Guru of Gang Starr over a mix of original beats as well as jacks from Kanye, the Neptunes, Mystikal and the Beatnuts.
