  1. To those who may say NAY to this comment. Shut up. This young lady like many of the young emcees around is an inspiration to veterans like myself. If you think you can't be inspired by our youth that are coming up in hip hop/music we have nothing to talk about. 21 gun salute for the young lady Mz. Bankz. Can't wait to hear what she got coming up next.
