Robb Banks - 2Phoneshawty (EP) & No Trespassing (Collab EP with Chris Travis)

Miami native Robb Bank$ quietly dropped some heat this week - but both projects are anything but quiet. 

After a few months of being relatively under the radar, 2PHONESHAWTY immediately throws himself back in the spotlight with a solo mixtape (2phoneshawty) and an EP with Memphian Waterboyz member Chris Travis (No Trespassing).

With an intro that lets you know exactly where Bank$ comes from (just in case you forgot), 2phoneshawty boasts the same unrelenting flow that you would expect from the young hip-hop antagonist over dark percussion-heavy beats. The tracks fluctuate between intense hard-hitting trap joints where he recklessly attacks your ears and constantly reminds you that he isn't someone to fuck with, and slower leaned-out tunes that, while soothing, relay that same message to similar effect.

No Trespassing is Bank$ and Travis's first collaborative project - a collection of 5 tracks including two (Adlib & Solid) that they put out in December and February, respectively. 

 

"Still that nigga
Still dead resurrected
It's the best nigga past or present
"

The chemistry between the two is instantly clear as Bank$'s angry yet lowkey delivery is contrasted by Travis's hypnotic higher-pitched reverb-heavy vocals. The baton goes back and forth as they ride the 808s with a smoothness reminiscent of Eightball & MJG. That classic southern flow dives deep into the dark synthy atmosphere that they've created - a place where they're just as likely to hype you up as they are to chill you the fuck out.

Both projects are available for free download so long as you tweet about them through PayWithATweet, a simple promotion feature that definitely needs to gain more traction in the realm of music.

Denis Haze- " Haze Hop '93"

Crawling out from the depths of the HAZE REALM and out of his slumber; reminding us that the quest continues to defeat that dreadful apparition ABIGAIL COLLINS. Given us some groovy old school vibes on this track, his quote worthy ad-lib's and that often awkward flow of his that teeters on obnoxious. Denis Haze is one of the few artists that I have come across with a definitive concept as an artist that directly uses a cultural icon as point of reference, much less a literary one such as the poet, Edgar Allen Poe. Something I was much akin to in the metal scene. But it works perfectly for him, at first glance it's hard to compare the two if you disregard the fact they are both from Maryland. But both are storytellers with penchant for tales of mystery and horror that communicates more through emotion and drama, to which Denis Haze uses his ad-libs at key points to symbolize rage and inter conflict and who knows what ABIGAIL COLLINS truly represents to him. It's easy to get distracted by the legendary "AHH FUCK" that often fades in and out, his whispers and background inflections, and vocal samples but it all serves a purpose to express his state of mind.
