The timeline for Rocky Banks since 2016 begins with sobriety and has since morphed into sharp rhymes and introspection about his life, his friends and more. The Mo. City rapper is in the comfort of creating the soundtrack of his friends’ lives.
On “Adapt,” Banks and his croaky sing-along rap style push through a bevy of 808s from Trakksounds and Marco V, singing “I adapt, learn then I adapt/I seen the traps, wont go tit for tat.” The goal for him? Survival always, but survival will feel greater if the whole team can get on. Because then, the raps and lifestyle used to be, “Had an operation out the days inn/Had to GPS my moral compass” to an immediate moment of reflection. “Man I was really stuck inside my ways then.”
