Seattle rapper, 28AV continues to rep the Emerald City on new single, “Banana” with Lil Mosey and Souf Souf. The melodic trap beat makes this track an infectious summertime hit. The accompanying video is a fun and vibrant visual, equipped with bikinis and banana accents at an elaborate mansion pool party. 28AV directed the video alongside OLEG KUD, adding to his growing resume as part of Jay Park’s label, H1GHR MUSIC.
Lil Mosey’s rhythmic chorus blends seamlessly into the bass. Following his recent success from “Blueberry Faygo,” this track shows the same nonchalant hype that Lil Mosey curates without outshining 28AV’s abilities. His verses are the standout aspect of “Banana” along with his unique look. He raps, “Copped a rollie out in London, call it Big Ben/ Banana clip hold fifty, give yo wig ten/ Feel another milli coming, that my sixth sense/ Shawdi cool, but who the hell her thick friend.” The meticulous structure of each verse shows the rapper’s poise and adds to the song’s catchiness. After a repeat of Mosey’s chorus, Souf Souf changes the pace with an autotuned sound and heightened notes after each bar. The combination of the three artists makes an enticing listen while showcasing talent in the Pacific Northwest.
“Banana” is a collaboration for the city of Seattle with 28AV’s roots in the Central District, Lil Mosey representing the North, and Souf Souf from the Southside. Even with Lil Mosey’s chart-topping benefits, this track has hit-worthy potential and the quality to shine a light on 28AV’s flow.
