Video: Show Banga – “Bonafide Hustla” ft. Lil Yee
Show Banga Flexes in a Bentley, Stacks Some Cash in the Visual for the ShowTime 2 Highlight
A talented rapper who synthesizes the Bay Area’s disparate sounds into radio-ready bangers, Fillmore’s Show Banga is a leader in the next wave of Bay Hip-Hop talent. Featuring a standout verse and melodic hook from Lil Yee, “Bonafide Hustla“ is a true anthem for those who never rest when there is money to be made. Riding around San Francisco in a brand new Bentley, Show Banga and Lil Yee stack and flip bills and mob with a massive crew in the new visual for the NikeBoy-produced track. Premiered today by East Bay Express, “Bonafide Hustla” is the third video released from Show Banga’s recent ShowTime 2, following the HipHopDX-premiered visual for “Steez 101” and the motivational “$howtime,” which earned a premiere from XXL. “The most important thing for aspiring hustler’s to know is that you never limit yourself,” declares Show Banga. “Never settle. Always keep hustling.”
Show Banga learned many of his hustling bonafides from his father Show Time, a versatile entrepreneur who played a vital role in supporting local Bay Area street rap throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s. A fixture on the the scene, Show Banga has deep relationships with members of the HBK Gang dating back to high school. Featuring guest spots from Sage The Gemini, Kool John, and Lil Yee, along with four features from IAMSU!, and production from IAMSU!, Juneonnabeat, Nikeyboy, Young Page and others, Show Time 2 proves Show Banga is one of the Bay’s premier young artists and that he has the charisma to break out of the Bay onto the national scene. Show Time 2, a true Bay Area affair, is currently available for purchase.

Show Banga Background:
Show Banga received his moniker from his father, nicknamed ShowTime, a hustler who opened up several independent music stores in the Bay Area and started Hunid Racks, a successful energy drink company that peaked in popularity during the Hyphy era in the Bay. Show Banga follows in his father’s footsteps, dedicating his life to getting money in any way possible. After getting kicked out of his mother’s house when she found a gun in his bedroom, Show Banga went to live with his father in Vallejo. In Vallejo, he attended Pinole Valley High School where he met many of the original members of HBK, eventually forming the Go Gettaz with IAMSU! and P-Lo, which gained a sizable local following before disbanding in 2011. Since then, Show Banga has earned success as a solo artist while still frequently collaborating with HBK artists such as IAMSU!, Kool John, and Sage The Gemini. Last year, the Fillmore rapper released his EMPIRE debut Mayor 4 Life, which DJ Booth called a “bridge between the Bay Area’s more gritty, street sound and it’s more polished, mainstream hip-hop.” Show Banga’s next album, Show Time 2, officially releases on August 12th and is currently available for pre-order.
