Kirko Bangz is an archetype of the modern-day, second-rate rapper. Though his talent is highly questionable, his auto-tune-filled songs are palatable. The Houston native’s latest sentimental narrative is “Keep It Trill,” which sounds like a Drake demo recorded on an iPhone app. If you’re not sleep by the end of the song, he recites the hook from Jon B.’s “They Don’t Know.” Read More
The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards were recorded a few weeks ago in Atlanta and aired nation-wide last night. Wiz Khalifa opened the show with “Work Hard, Play Hard” and brought out Rick Ross’ good friend Young Jeezy and Taylor Gang affiliate Juicy J. Hippies and gangstas can indeed coexist.

Kirko Bangz plans on releasing a mixtape filled with his take on some of rap’s most popular beats. He kicks things off with a verse over Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like.” Read More
If you didn’t think Fat Joe‘s “Another Round” couldn’t get any better, think again!
Mary J. Blige fluidly laces the track, smoothly singing the hook originally sang by Chris Brown. Fabolous, Joey Crack and Kirko Bangz trade ineffective verses throughout. Read More
Houston rapper Kirko Bangz invaded DJ Green Lantern’s radio show an delivered an “OnDaSpot” freestyle. It wasn’t the best showing by the 22-year-old, but with bangers including “Drank In My Cup” and “What Yo Name Iz?,” who cares? Read More
