Multi-faceted UK rapper Ms Banks has finally shared her highly anticipated EP, “Bank Statement”.
“Bank Statement” is a fiery UK rap offering, with Ms Banks leading from the front and asserting her worth in titanic style. The 9-track project features Tion Wayne, Eight9FLY, and Naira Marley while production is handled by the likes of Ebenezer, JD. Reid, and Rexxie among others.
From the incendiary opener “Bluff”, in which Banks puts the game on notice, to “Bare With Me”, with its curtain-drawing lyrics on her private life, a variety of sounds—including drill, dancehall, and Afroswing—trace her growth. “This is my statement”, she says. “This is a reflection of my life right now. I still find it hard speaking about how lockdown affected me and my career, and I just wanted to find some type of escapism or resolution. I like to turn up, and I’m all about empowering women. But I also wanted to delve deeper and provide you with different aspects of me. Balance is key.”
