Artist of the Week: Kirko Bangz


The rapper whose real name is Kirk Randle gains major attention through his mixtape single 'Drank in My Cup' and draws comparison to Drake.

Kirk "Kirko Bangz" Randle hasn't released a full-length studio album, but he already took music scene by storm. Through a street song called "Drank in My Cup", he sat at No. 1 on Billboard Rap Songs and Heatseekers, busted top 5 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and climbed up to No. 28 on Hot 100.

The song is taken from his latest mixtape "Progression 2: A Young Texas Playa. Due to its success, a number of artists have jumped on it for remixes. It was revamped by J. Cole, 2 Chainz, Juelz Santana, Bow Wow, Chamillionaire and Trey Songz among other stars.

Often compared to Drake, Kirko told BallerStatus, "I look at it like this: I just started. They've been around forever and they're million dollar n****s. I know that the more that I do it, the more that my sound is going to get me more in my own lane. Eventually, people are going to catch on."

The success of "Drank in My Cup" pushed him harder to make better music. "I'm working on another mixtape and my album. I don't have a name or a date for the album yet, but it's a priority though," he spilled. "I really haven't started working on it yet, but I know I'm about to start. I have the Procrastination Kills series, so I might come back down and do the Procrastination Kills 4."
