Yung Bans was born on May 25, 1999 on the Southside of Atlanta, Georgia.

Bans is an up and coming SoundCloud artist who has just reached the rapping surface. He began rapping at the age of six-years-old, rhyming over the movie Hustle and Flow’s instrumental ‘Whoop That Tri*k’ with his younger brother. During high school, he dug deeper into his musical bag and for that his first single “4Tspoon” featuring Playboi Carti instantly went viral.

The song managed to rack up FIVE MILLION views and the numbers are still on the rise. Continuing on his musical high, he later teamed up with rappers XXXtentacion and Ski Mask the Slump God and created another bop “ILOVEITWHENTHEYRUN” which was streamed more than 37 million times.

Yung Bans is only 18-years-old and he has already dropped four EPs which are ‘Yung Bans,’ ‘Yung Bans Vol. 2’ ‘Yung Bans Vol. 3’ and recently ‘Yung Bans Vol. 4’ with big features from big time artist like Lil Yatchy, Lil Skies, Smokepurpp and Lil Xan.

Bans currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia and is working on new flows, flavor and hits.
