We first heard from Banna in December of last year upon the release of his hit single “Unfair“. The song introduced The Static Dive readers to an emerging Middle Eastern independent hip-hop artist with a verbose lyrical flow. He dropped his debut single “Ace of Spades” on Christmas Day 2020 and has connected with hip-hop fans around the world.
Banna has released a string of successful singles since that first song. With each new track his audience grows by the tens of thousands. The rapper’s unique sound combines old-school lyrical technique with modern production styles. He mixes elements of r&b, pop, and trap with classic beats to create a unique genre-fluid hip-hop vibe.
“LOCKED IN Freestyle” is the brand new single from Banna, released worldwide via all major streaming services on April 21, 2023. The sound of seagulls and ocean waves opens the track as the beat drops. Deep wah-wah guitar and electric piano soul vibes ride a downtempo boom-bap. On the mic, Banna drops rapid-fire braggadocio freestyle over that chilled groove.
