Entertainment and music is always changing depending on it’s avenue and what’s considered current.
No one can ever predict the mass amount of fluctuation, saturation and all types of changes “a scene” goes through. But it never stops the flood of artists from entering the ring, from which a few end up at top of the chain. JBan$ is one of those name and who’s hardly new to the game. He first caught our attention 2 years ago when he signed to Lil Yachty’s label. Ever since the rapper has been steadily dropping music. He collabed with his label boss on “Walked in Ready” which also featured Lil Pump. After 2 years of collaborating with known names, Jban$ popped off with “Get That Bag” two months ago which has been getting a lot more attention as it highlights Jban$ ability to make high energy bangers.
