Video: BandGang – “Narcotics 2”
The Rising Detroit Collective Share a Raunchy Clip For a Hard-Hitting Anthem From Their Upcoming Project
“With short, uneven phrases and a rise-and-fall style that approximates the patterns of speech, [BandGang Lonnie Bands] seems intent on developing a fresh approach that is as mesmerizing as it is unpredictable.” – Complex
“BandGang is on fire in Detroit right now” – XXL
The biggest rap group in the burgeoning Detroit rap scene, BandGang brings a voracious and contagious energy to every track. Showcasing the charismatic rhyming skills of crew members BandGang Lonnie Bands and BandGang Paid Will, the group shares “Narcotics 2,” a bouncily menacing new single. A ferocious follow-up to Lonnie Bands’ single “Narcotics,” which shares a similar hook but a much lower energy-level, “Narcotics 2” finds the whole BandGang living up to their name, counting fat stacks and spending them on strippers. Featured on WorldStarHipHop, “Narcotics 2” is the first glimpse at BandGang’s upcoming 30-track epic of a mixtape, due early in August.
Transforming minor-key instrumentals into raucous hustler’s anthems, the six-man BandGang leads a rising wave of popping Detroit rappers. Bursting onto the scene in late 2013, BandGang garnered attention for creating an endless array of street slappers, including local hits “Out My Business,” “Slippin‘,” “On a Safe,” “Flip Work,” and many more. With each member contributing a different flow and vocal style, BandGang has a remarkable hit percentage, racking up an impressive number of videos over 1 million YouTube views. With critical attention from Noisey, Complex, XXL, HYPEBEAST, HotNewHipHop, and others, BandGang is ready to bust out of Detroit and make a national impact.
