West Coast Rap Artist Show Banga Takes You To Class In “Steez 101”
Show Banga returns with fresh new visuals! Ghost riding his Dodge Charger in San Francisco’s AT&T Park’s parking lot in view of the San Francisco Bay, Fillmore emcee Show Banga delivers a fun visual for “Steez 101,” an energetic jam perfect for late-summer. Rhyming near the park’s famous Willie Mays Gate, Show Banga spits relaxed witticisms over an echoing, X-Files whistle synth, snapping snares, and modular bass: “No coffee but a star with the damn bucks.” The latest single from Show Banga’s third studio album Show Time 2, released earlier this month via EMPIRE, “Steez 101” follows the XXL premiere of the video for “$howtime,” the album’s opening track, a motivational hustler’s anthem and the mission statement for the record, and the Mass Appeal premiere of “Can’t Stand Me,” featuring Kool John.
Show Banga learned all his game from his father, Show Time, a business man and well-respected hustler who played a vital role in supporting local Bay Area street rap throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s. Coming from San Francisco’s storied Fillmore District, Show Banga is a unique talent, mixing elements of the Mob Music of his hometown, the ratchet beats popular across the Bay, and Southern influences prevalent in East Oakland street rap into a signature blend of turn-up. Featuring guest spots from Sage The Gemini, Lil Yee and Kool John, along with four features from IAMSU! and production from IAMSU!, Juneonnabeat, Nikeyboy, Young Page and others, Show Time 2 proves Show Banga is one of the Bay’s premier young artists and that he has the charisma to break out of the Bay onto the national scene. ShowTime 2, a true Bay Area affair, is currently available for purchase and stream.
