Elijah Bank$y // My Hiatus @ELIJAHBANKSY
LATEST MUSIC EDITION
"New York emcee El!jah Bank$y released the music video for the first single off his upcoming EP titled #Banksy4TheKiddas. "My Hiatus" is a beautifully, unsettling track that represents a crucial moment in Bank$y's career.
Blessed with his parents support for his music, Bank$y struggles with deepening his knowledge of self and believing in his dreams while making his loved ones proud, day by day. The video for "My Hiatus"-- shot primarily in Bank$y's hometown, Chester, NY-- is as raw as the lyrics laced beneath the imagery but, at times, polished to fit the attitude of the young emcee, set out to succeed by any means necessary. You can download #Banksy4TheKiddas Jan. 15th 2016."
Since 2012, Chicago has become a mecca for some of the most influential artists in the industry. Artists such as Chance the Rapper, Kanye West, and Noname have all positioned themselves as leaders by putting their own take on signature Chicago sounds.
Recently, I caught up with Evie in between her set where she gave me the scoop on how she got into Djing and where she wants to see her newest project, Babes Only, grow to. Like anyone wanting to dive into a creative lane, she started a blog and eventually, began learning how to DJ firsthand from Smoko Ono, another prominent Chicago producer.
