Jacob Banks, the Nigerian-born yet London based, is next up as a singer, songwriter and producer. Last week he released "Monster 2.0" featuring the West Coast native Boogie.

The track starts with a melodic yet grungy tone from Banks with Nigerian sounding harmonies in the background. The claps through out the song make the tune inherently happy even though Banks is preaching about the darkness of being turned into a demon. The Interscope artist has such a unique tone that I was immediately drawn to the feel of this song. The second half of the track features bars from Compton's very own, Boogie. The whole beat slows down once Boogie starts spitting, all up until he gradually builds his verse with the production - rhyming about a person you thought you knew that would come through but didn't.
Keep an eye on the young jerk chicken connoisseur in 2017! He's definitely cooking up some tasty shit.
