His musical influences are full of Rap’s melting pot, with greats like; 2Pac, U.G.K., OutKast, and Too Short. Living his life’s dream, Shank B is a rap poet who is telling it like it is. Get ready to be entertained and influenced. In his own words, Shank B says “I want people to know that I stay true to making music that is timeless. I am a wise young man with a vision of being a leader and I will always be true to who I am. I am also an everyday ordinary person just like you who is cool, has laid back swag, knows how to party and have fun.” Back to the days where music tells a story, Rapper Shank B fuses poetry over dope beats and creates stories.
