BANKX emerged last year as a talented act on the path to success, and the 18-year-old Milwaukee rapper looks to continue that journey in 2016. He recently aligned with Skizzy Mars and Penthouse Music, a move that should position him for more opportunities, but his musical output will inevitably be the marker for which he’ll gain the most traction.
Today, Complex premieres “Alive,” a smooth record produced by Felix Snow that features BANKX’s delivering a syrupy ode about living with no regrets. The track also includes a wonderful vocal assist from Madi, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed there’s more collaborations from these two in the future.
“This song is about me expressing how I feel at the moment, with everything that’s been happening, me being on the road, buzzing more, meeting this girl and getting serious with her, I just feel alive,” BANKX told Complex over email. “I want to inspire the youth to just live in the moment, don’t regret anything. Just go with the flow and have your drugs while you’re at it, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be.”
Check out “Alive” below and expect more music from BANKX in the new year.
