First off, I'd like to say a big props to you for your hardwork and diligence, not only as a recording artist who's consistently put out solid materials, but also as a label manager, an entrepreneur, and recently, as a film director. Neither of these works have come with mediocre standard.
But then, that's not why we are here. I used to be a fan of your music until you stylishly unvieled your rap skills. Then, I became a huge fan. From your verse on 'Reppin' Emeazzyyy' to 'Can't Stop Us' (both tracks off the Empire Mates State of Mind album), to L.O.S's Bad Guy P (Remix) which features yourself andSarkodie, I mean you've delivered solid hip-hop verses that hip-hop heads can reckon with.
Last year, off the Legendary Cool DJ Jimmy Jatt's Industry Album released in August, you got featured alongside Phyno on E To Beh - the 4th track in the album, and you delivered unarguably one of the best rap verses on the album. I mean, on an album that features many of the best and finest rappers the industry as ever seen, you had hip-hop heads mumbling about your verse and your rap skills. I remember correctly, people went ahead to start a campaign that you release a mixtape, and some rappers, in your words, "were scared that an RnB dude might hurt 'em".
You went ahead in October to release a remix to one of the hit singles from the 'Once Upon A Time' album released by Mavin's First Lady - Tiwa Savage, Shout Out. The remix saw you dropped bars as a rapper and you went ahead to announce that the remix was the first single of your forthcoming mixtape titled 'I’m Not Even A Rapper Though'. That was a great news. I felt like, yeah.. finally!
Mr. Olubankole Wellington, its been four months since this announcement and we're yet to have another single off the purported mixtape, a cover art, tracklist or the mixtape as a whole. If you've been sleeping on it, see this as a wake up call. And if you changed your mind, well, how about you consider this a plea from a fan.
I mean, it wouldn't hurt to (gradually) pull a Chris Brown on us. Would it?
So, on behalf of hip-hop heads who'd love to see that version of you, we want the 'I'm Not Even A Rapper Though' mixtape. I might as well start a twitter campaign with the #BankyMustRap tag. LOL.
