Remy Banks, a charismatic 26-year-old rapper from Queens outlines his entire life story with his recent 11 track project “Higher”. Raised in the hip hop Mecca, Remy focuses on changing the current state of rap in the big apple by resurrecting original hip hop sound and soul. Not trying to be cool or fit in but rather just be himself and trust his uniqueness will carve its own lane.  Remy’s organic effortless style creates a smooth, laid back feel that you would hear being played at your neighborhood barbecue in the summertime. Calling on producers like  Black Noi$e, King Krule, Left Brain, and artist Syd The Kyd, D.R.A.M., and Hak,  collectively they add their ingredients and spices to cook up this classic material. Remy casually separates himself from the crowd by not limiting his music into a specific box and following the age-old theory of keeping quiet and allowing the work to speak. “Higher” inspires others to be themselves and be products of their environment, encouraging listeners to talk about what they know and embrace the lessons learned growing up as well as encouraging his audience to find their own voice and not be afraid to express what you are going through because your peers or society thinks it’s not cool. Combating the evils of everyday life with the power of individuality and self love.  To hear Remy’s  “Higher” EP stream the video below and as always…
