Click To Download: banksthegenius – Long Road
Enter Rob Mefford, AKA banksthegenius. This twenty year old artist lives all but minutes from me in the burbs of Chicago. banks picked up a guitar in 5th grade and has been making music ever since. He really didn’t get into hip-hop until he was 17 when he started freestyling with some friends cruising around. It was then that he realized he had some raw talent and started to take his clever lyricism and unique voice to the next level.
thegenius caught my eye with this video after he wrapped up his first solo project Gifted in Novemeber. The kid has been on fire ever since. banks has a new solo project in the works right now as well as a collaborative EP with the InteLLects (a collaborate effort between Mefford and thekidDIRTY) which we will keep you posted with. Check out their latest vid for a song that won’t be on the EP here and download it below.
