Kirko Bangz at BackBar SoFa

In Music

The early 2010s marked the beginning of a new trend—just about every rapper, from J. Cole to Big K.R.I.T, began singing the hook themselves. Another example of this tradition can be found in Houston rapper Kirko Bangz’s hit single “Drank in My Cup.” Delivered over a glittering, synth-heavy instrumental, the track is a dizzying piece of half sung hip-hop hedonism. The song remains Bangz’ most successful tune to date and it hasn’t aged a day. We’re still waiting on Bangz’ debut album, but if the stream of EP’s and mixtapes he’s released since then are any indicator, the man’s still hard at work.
