When talent meets persistence the combination can be a force to reckon with. Eight months ago, if you asked anybody outside of Chicago who B Bandz was, they probably wouldn’t know. Since the release of his debut Project “How I’m Coming” this past January, B Bandz performs in front of thousands of new fans on a weekly basis.
When your average 15 year old is spending his weekend playing video games or socializing with friends, B Bandz is either fresh off tour or recording new songs because according to him this is just the beginning. “I am the youngest doing it in my age bracket, period.” B Bandz recently explained to HipHopABC.TV .
Alongside, DJ Lil Corie, fellow high school sophomore, B Bandz has perfected a high energy show set, recently taking his talents to Austin Texas for the SXSW Festival. We caught up with B Bandz after his show at the Core DJ’s stage, his second of 3 shows scheduled in Austin, TX.
B Bandz was scheduled for a mixtape release party shortly after in New Orleans, but his brief stay in Texas was fruitful, various labels and distributors present expressed an interest in partnering with TST for future projects. The Chicago based label has has put all its focus on B Bandz and it is clear he is the best bet if the plan is to win.
B Bandz is also an exceptional basket ball player with various highlight videos on the internet to prove it, he makes no apologies for being very competitive.
Below is a recap of our experience with this rising star, and we would like to thank our partners at The Omen Agency as well as TST Empire for putting this together. Keep an ear out for the Fresh Prince of Chicago.
