South London’s Ms Banks is the UK hip-hop artist who deserves all of the attention she continues to attract since first bursting onto the scene with her mixtape ‘Once Upon A Grind’ in 2014. Already causing a stir with her potent lyrical skills and deadly delivery which she showcased in last year’s much talked about ‘Fire In the Booth’ freestyle and this year’s ‘Get Loose’, Camberwell native Ms Banks once again demonstrates the stratospheric heights she is set to reach, with the debut of her new track ‘OMG’ and its striking, must-see visuals.
With production from rising east London producer Jason Julian, ‘OMG’ provides the perfect vehicle for Ms Banks to showcase her unmatched bars and inimitable lyrical flow. Receiving a first play on DJ Target’s 1Xtra show, the track is brought to life with its explosive Kevin Hudson (Wretch 32, Avelino, J Hus) directed visual which was premiered on Noisey. The video captures Ms Banks’ fearless and infectious persona as she proudly takes to the streets of London, including her own neighbourhood of Walworth Road.
Commenting on the track, Ms Banks said:
“The everyday motto is to ‘turn up and get f*cked. It’s lit’. Lol, no but seriously this beat made me bring the rawness back. I love it so much. OMG is about how it made me feel and how I put that energy back into the track.”
With Ms Banks sharing more new music and electric live performances throughout 2017 and already garnering support from outlets such as Dazed, Dummy, The FADER, BBC 1Xtra, SBTV, GRM Daily and Link UP TV there is no doubt that this year and far beyond is hers for the taking.
